Palermo – Celta Vigo
12 dec 2006 Uefa Cup soccer
Another crucial game , with a big stake in the middle. The italian squad needs to win .
They won their opening game 2-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt, Palermo lost to Newcastle United FC and Fenerbahçe SK to slip to fourth in the section. However, a win against Celta would guarantee them at least a third place finish in the section, and possibly the runners-up spot depending on lastday game other result .
While Palermo need all three points to qualify to the next stage, Celta is ok with a draw.
Celta may end up third in the group and this has to do with the Fener-Eintracht outcome and in case that the game vs. Palermo ends up draw.
The italian coach Guidolin said that is taking the game seriously and the only result for this game is a win .
In my opinion this game will end in the classic italian style , a short win 1-0 , maybe 2-0 or 2-1. But to be realistic , Celta will look for a draw , so the smartest bet to do , is to back the hosts.
So , today s pick goes to a straight win :
