Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 12 September 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.
The Royal Whites have raced to the top of the table, and are unbeaten so far. They are determined to lift the title this season. Meanwhile, Celta Vigo are yet to register a win, and are placed in the bottom-most tier. Surely expect Real Madrid to secure the three points on offer.
They had narrowly missed out on the champions’ medal in 2020-21, and that too against arch-rivals and neighbors Atleti. However, the Los Blancos were in the running till the very last match-day, and at the end, they finished two points below Diego Simeone’s men.
However, they have made a great start to their campaign this time around, and are in possession of the first position.
They have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the league, and with the second-placed Sevilla having a tough game coming up, it’s an opportunity to improve the lead at the top.
In the meantime, Vigo had not even qualified for Europe the past campaign, and as of now, they are placed 18th in a table of 20 – with a 100% winless record. In fact, they have a 100% losing record, barring a single draw.
And as expected, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have a great h2h record over the years as well.
For all these reasons, expect a win for Real Madrid this Sunday at the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-3 win for the Los Blancos.
- They had won six of the previous seven meetings.
- They had scored two or more goals in the former ten clashes on the trot.
- The visitors had failed to score in seven of their past eleven visits to this ground.
Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Ancelotti’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Betis. In the meantime, Celta lost 0-1 at home against Bilbao.
Going on, the Royal Whites had scored three or more goals in all but one league fixture this new season, and their only defeat since January had come against Chelsea in the Champions League semifinal.
On the other hand, their counterparts have scored a total of one goal this new La Liga campaign, and they have always struggled against this rival.
By all means, expect a thumping victory for Real Madrid, as they take on one of the weakest teams in the Spanish top flight at the moment.
