Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Match Preview

Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 27 October 2019
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Balaídos (Vigo).

Celta has been a major disappointment this season so far. What once used to be a fiercely competitive side, is at present placed 17th in the table. Their offense has completely let them down, and so have their ties on the road. However, this upcoming fixture is at home, and fans definitely hope their players would step up and deliver.

But one thing that casts a shadow is the arrival of Sociedad, currently placed fourth in standings, even above Atleti. The former put an end to their two-game losing run with a win the last day and will be keen to add to it.

Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Prediction

The Celtics lost the last day on the road against Alaves. They were subjected to two goals by the hosts, and in return, not a single time was the opposing defense breached. Meanwhile, the Whites and Blues made an inspiring comeback against Betis the same match-day, as they slotted three, in response to the one scored by the Heliopolitans.

At present, Vigo has two wins to show for from their preceding twelve games and just two from their former eight appearances in front of the home crowd. On the other hand, their opposite number remained unbeaten in eight of their last eleven overall games and was so in four of their prior six matches on the road.

Moreover, La Real had recorded eight of the preceding twelve h2h clashes as well. Taking these observations into account, we can be confident about the guests avoiding the loss at the least this Sunday.

However, if the results of h2h meetings between the two are considered, along with the home advantage, the chances for a clean sheet for Imanol Alguacil’s men seem bleak.
