Venue: Estadio de Balaídos, Vigo.

UEFA Europa League semi-finalists Celta Vigo will take on Real Betis after beating Belgian Genk on Thursday. Since Europa League spot is completely out of their reach, Celta will probably completely focus on the upcoming clash with Manchester United.

The guests comfortably beat La Liga prodigy Eibar in the last round in Sevilla.

Celta Vigo

La Celeste are only in the 10th position with 44 points collected. The team will be certainly fatigued after the trip to Belgium, but they also heavily rotated against last Sunday while managing to beat Granada CF 0-3.

Celta won 9 out of 15 matches at Estadio de Balaidos. They were beaten on five occasions while only one game ended without a winner. 49 goals were scored in 15 Celta’s home games, so we might expect another high-scoring affair on Sunday.

Real Betis

Uninspired guests are comfortably sitting in the 14th position with 34 points collected. Betis are safe from relegation so their managed could rotate or experiment as the season is coming to an end.

Real Betis were beaten in the last three games on the road in La Liga, wherein they conceded at least two per game. They lost 8 out of their last 10 away matches in the domestic league.

In the meeting of the two sides Seville in December, Celta and Betis managed to score three goals each. Also, in each of their last five duels, both teams were able to score at least a goal per game.

Celta Vigo vs Real Betis Prediction

As the tie against Manchester United is already in Celta Vigo players’ heads, Real Betis could easily use the exhaustion and distraction to register another three points in 2016/17 season. However, the guests seem completely uninterested, so we might see a low-tempo game on Sunday.
