Kick off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaidos.

Real Sociedad dropped the home victory over Malaga last weekend to stay outside of the positions leading to Europa League in the next season.

The Basques will have a very tough task to clinch either fifth or sixth position in the last round as they will take on Celta de Vigo at Estadio do Balaidos.

Celta de Vigo

The look at Celta’s form in Primera Division would possibly suggest an easy job for Eusebio Sacristian’s side, but it is far from being a realistic picture.

Eduardo Berizzo intentionally sacrificed domestic campaign for the Europa League success where the Sky Blues reached the semifinal stage.

The Argentine manager used his best lineup in mid-week with Real Madrid in mid-week, but Los Blancos took a 1-4 victory.

Real Sociedad

The visitors have been pretty inspired in the final third over the last couple of weeks.

The team is undefeated in last five league matches and each of their last four fixtures saw the option of both sides scoring.

Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad: Head to head

Draw has generally been the most common of the outcomes in the history of head to head encounter between Celta and Real Sociedad.

The Sky Blues took both wins in the last term of Primera Division, but the Basques came out victorious from the meeting in the first part of this season when they took a narrow 1-0 win at Anoeta.

Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad: Prediction

The bookmakers fancy Real Sociedad to pick up the victory at 3/4 odds here, but we’d rather back goals.

Both teams play attacking football, the visitors have not been playing defense at all in the last couple of matches and we can hardly see a low-scoring affair in the last game of the season at Balaidos.
