Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Match Preview

Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio de BalaĆ­dos (Vigo).

Celta Vigo earlier used to be such a threat for other teams in the Spanish League. But now, they find themselves in the relegation zone. And with eight match-days remaining, faces an intense struggle to secure their future. They had the fortune to take on fellow relegation-battlers the last two weeks, and rightfully they made good use of it.

Sociedad is safe from the exit zone, and it would take some really special spoilsport for them to stare relegation in the face now. As far as they are concerned, all that remains is the window to Europe. They are six points away and have eight games to make up the difference. They can start with this weekend, considering they are taking on a team from the exit zone.

Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Prediction

The respective league standings alone provide a good picture as to who the winner might be. While Real is giving a desperate chase to secure a place in Europe, Celta is stuck in the relegation zone. Going on, Real was unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 matches, and in 15 of their last 20 on the road. Meanwhile, Celta was winless in 13 of their last 15 fixtures, and in seven of their last ten at home.

Importantly, Real recorded eight of the last eleven h2h wins and has been unbeaten at this venue since 2016. With the team going after the top-six spots, the momentum they have built over this season will come to aid. Count on them to avoid a loss at any cost.

Coming to goals, the game is extremely crucial for either side. And as such, the match will be played with that intensity. Moreover, 12 of the last 15 h2h ties had goals from either direction and so did six of the last seven at this venue. Expect neither side to keep a clean sheet, as both futures hang in the balance.
