Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 22nd January 2017
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Anoeta, San Sebastian.
This is also one of the derby matches of the round since both teams belong to the top part of Primera standings. Real Sociedad jumped up at 5th position after taking three points from La Rosaleda on Monday evening and they will enter the clash with Celta Vigo with high spirits. Eusebio Sacristian thus managed to get the devastating 0 – 4 defeat to Sevilla out of his players’ heads since the team managed to bounce back instantly in the next round. However, Sacristian will be handicapped since one of his best players, Carlos Vela, is sidelined due to injury troubles.
The Argentine manager Eduardo Berizzo will have worries of his own since he is without Hernandez, Orellana and Planas for the visit to Anoeta. Sevilla managed to maintain the perfect record in the New Year to extend the impressive run to five consecutive wins. It was the Serbian midfielder Nemanja Radoja who scored his first goal in Celta’s shirt to give them the win in the dying minutes of the game against Deportivo Alaves last weekend.
