Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo
Spain La Liga
Date: Thursday, 22 April 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Reale Arena, Donostia-San Sebastian.
Neither Real Sociedad nor Celta Vigo have been enjoying a spectacular form going into their 32nd round clash on Thursday evening at Reale Arena.
The lack of motivation may be the biggest cause for this as neither of the two outfits have a serious quest to go for in the remaining part of the season.
Txuri-Urdinak have already achieved the biggest goal by beating the fierce Basque rivals Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final (the one that was postponed from the last season).
Since that win, Imanol Alguacil’s men took only two points in four league matches. To be fair, the losses did come against the likes of Barcelona (1-6) and Sevilla (1-2).
Given the team drew against Athletic Bilbao and Valencia, we can’t say that Sociedad had an easy schedule during the mentioned negative run. Can they bring it to an end on Thursday, though?
Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo Head-to-head
- The clubs have 17 wins apiece ahead of their 53rd head to head clash. Also, the teams won two apiece of their last four H2H encounters.
- Each of the last three head to head meetings between the two sides ended in away wins.
- Real Sociedad claimed a demolishing 1-4 victory when they visited Abanca-Balaidos in early-November last year.
Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Celta have been playing hot and cold over the last couple of months. They won just one of the last five league games. However, they also lost only one of the last six away fixtures in the league.
Edouardo Coudet’s men finally kept a clean sheet last weekend when they were held by relegation-threatened Cadiz to a goalless draw at Estadio Ramon de Carranza.
We must not forget that the likes of Iago Aspas, Facundo Ferreyra, and Nolito are capable of causing troubles to any defence in the league on their day.
This trio should have plenty of space to exploit the obvious holes in Sociedad’s back line. Txuri-Urdinak conceded at least a goal in five successive La Liga matches.
Since Celta are also anything but a strong defensive outfit, we will back the Both Teams To Score as the main betting option at the odds of 1.75.
As for the outcome, the value is with the draw at the odds of 3.50.
