We have reached the Spanish winter break with Celta Vigo in 2031/32. Alejandro Hurtado will be very pleased that his side sit in 6th place in La Liga after 17 games.
Having assembled a large part of his first team the previous summer (take a look at our squad review here) some may have expected a longer settling in period for Hurtado and his men.
But an impressive run of form has seen the Galician side rise up the league and enter the winter break in the 2nd Europa League spot.
2031/2032. An impressive start
Just three losses since our previous update. An infuriating defeat against Oviedo, the team rooted to the bottom of the league with just three points, threatened to derail Vigo’s good start to the season.
But two men have really shined over the first half of the season.
Cristian Rivas, an ex-Tolima star from when Hurtado was in charge of the Colombian club, has been the standout performers centrally.
Playing in the shadow striker role, Cristian Rivas has thrived and proved an effective goalscoring threat.
Our main goalscorer, however, is our inside forward Hugo Galan.
With 10 goals, Hugo Galan has won many games for Vigo this year. He has proved to be as effective in the air as with his feet having been on the end of many Pirretas and Fandino crosses from the right.
The board are, as expected, thrilled with the progress our side have made so far this season.
It has been a very promising start to Alejandro Hurtado’s first full season in charge of Celta Vigo. Long may it continue.
