Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Abanca-Balaidos (Vigo).
The change on the bench seems to have done the job for Real Madrid who are flying high under Santiago Solari. To be fair, the new manager is yet to face a serious test, but the three-clean-sheet-win streak is certainly promising for team’s fans after such a dreadful period under Julen Lopetegui.
Los Blancos finally reminded of the team which won three UCL trophies in last four seasons when they stormed past Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday evening. Karim Benzema was especially inspired on the Czech soil. The Frenchman bagged a brace in Plzen, while the likes of Casemiro, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos also added their names on the scoreline on the occasion.
Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid: Head-to-head
Madrid slipped up in last two visits to Vigo playing back-to-back 2-2 draws with Celta at Balaidos.
Overall, Los Blancos were much more successful throughout the history winning 25 of last 42 encounters with the Sky Blues.
Three or more goals were seen in all of last ten head to head affairs, eight of which saw goals scored at both ends.
Madrid took a demolishing 6-0 victory in the previous match against the Sky Blues in May this year at Santiago Bernabeu.
Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid: Prediction
Real still have time to catch up with Barcelona who are seven points away at the very top of Primera Division standings. Will they be able to keep the good form going and maintain the winning streak on Sunday evening when they travel to Balaidos to take on Celta in the last game of the Matchday?
We should really be in for a high-scoring thriller here based on both H2H record and team’s most recent results. The hosts will come into this off the back of a 3-3 draw to Real Betis last weekend away at Estadio Benito Villamarin.
The Over 2.5 goals FT is a genuine banker, but we’ll try and catch the value backing Real Madrid to win & BTTS as the main betting option here at the odds of 2.62.
