All eyes will be on Celta’s in-form forward who bagged a brace in the weekend’s 2-0 home win over the rock-bottomed Huesca. He will no doubts be the biggest threat to Sociedad’s goal when teams take on each other on Wednesday evening at Anoeta.

These two sides also played each other in the league clash before the international break. Txuri-Urdinak took a 2-1 victory through goals from Mikel Oyarzabal and Zurutuza, while Maxi Gomez only found the late consolation goal for Celta.

Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head

The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head matches between these two likes.

It happened 18 times in 47 games. Celta won 15 and lost 14 of remaining clashes.

It is interesting to mention that all of past five head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.

Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo: Prediction

Sociedad’s form has seen a rise in recent weeks. They broke into the top half of La Liga standings after claiming seven points from three matches against Sevilla, Levante and Celta Vigo. Nevertheless, their fine thread came to an end on Sunday when Asier Garitano’s men fell 1-0 to Real Betis away at Estadio Benito Villamarin.

The hosts are winless in last three home games in the league and they will be a tough nut to crack for Celta. The Sky Blues finally managed to keep things quiet at the back on Saturday, but they shipped as many as seven goals in last three away games.

The BTTS is the best of betting options here. You can back it at the odds of 1.80.
