Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Monday, 26 November 2018
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Anoeta, San Sebastian.
Real Sociedad hosts Celta Vigo at the Anoeta this Monday, to take part in the 13th round of Spanish top division football.
The hosts will be on high spirits after recording an amazing victory on the road against a higher-placed team in the table, Levante. Sociedad conceded an early goal, in the fourth minute to be precise, and like clockwork, Levante parked the bus for the rest of the match. Real tried for stretches of time, and still couldn’t break the deadlock.
But in the 73rd minute, the floodgates opened, and it rained goals at the Levante posts. Three goals in the space of ten minutes and Real Sociedad walked away with the three points.
Celta Vigo will be disappointed that they couldn’t take off points from the struggling Real Madrid, despite having home advantage. The final score was 2-4. The hosts also had to suffer the embarrassment of registering an own goal.

Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Sociedad has always been strong at the Anoeta, and visiting teams have always found it hard to beat them there, giving rise to the popular legend, the Anoeta Curse.
Real has fared better in recent head-to-head ties, and as things stand, they seem more likely to survive this match without much damage.
Disregarding a lone win against Levante, Celta Vigo has really been poor on the road this season. They have just one win, the one against Levante, to their name, in their last 16 tries on the road. Vigo also had an eleven-match winless run away from home.
Goals will be scarce in this match. Vigo has found it hard to score recently on the road, and Sociedad defends very well at home. Last three matches of Real saw a total of just one goal.
