Match Preview & Team News
Los Blancos welcome in-form Celta Vigo who found their way out of the relegation zone quite fast. Squad from Balaidos has collected 16 out of possible 18 points from last six domestic matches and made huge progress on the standings. They are currently occupying 8th place and there is no doubt Europa League is reachable if the form doesn’t decline suddenly. As expected, bookies labelled them as underdogs for this clash at Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium. Read on our La Liga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Los Blancos and their fans were quite disappointed to see fantastic series of six straight victories across all competitions end in the last game in 2020. Match against Elche wasn’t looking good from a start, despite the fact Zidane’s squad had an early lead thanks to the goal scored by Luka Modric. Team just didn’t look fresh on Wednesday night, but will be looking to return to winning ways as soon as possible. The current standings are not looking super-bad, but chances to defend the title are getting slimmer after every slip-up.
As for their opposition, Iago Aspas is playing the best football of his career lately, directly securing a lot of points for Celta Vigo by scoring game-winning goals. They also played during the mid-week, beating Huesca at home 2-1.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Celta scored 11 goals in the last five La Liga games. Considering Real’s recent vulnerability in the back, going for both teams to score at 7/10 seems like a perfect choice.
Despite the recent setback, we believe Zidane’s crew is going to take all three points here and continue the race with Atletico Madrid. Celta Vigo’s insane run is probably going to end in the capital.
