Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Celta de Vigo were able to pick up the first win in four after beating Deportivo La Coruna 3-1 at the Riazor. Goals from Daniel Wass and Iago Aspas (2) were able to provide a comprehensive 3-0 lead for Celta de Vigo by the 53rd minute, but Florin Andone's 59th minute goal took away the clean sheet from Juan Carlos Unzue’s team. Real Madrid may have effectively conceded defeat in the La Liga title race after a 3-0 loss against Barcelona. Despite dominating in the first half, Madrid were deflated when Luis Suarez’ opened the scoring in the 54th minute. A Lionel Messi penalty and Daniel Carvajal red card was a double whammy for Madrid in the 64th minute. A late goal from Aleix Vidal made it a comprehensive win for the Catalan club.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Real Madrid have had a good record at the Balaidos after winning three out of the last five visits. Celta de Vigo’s last home victory over Real Madrid was in 2014. Real Madrid may have suffered a defeat in the home game against Barcelona, but the first half was rather impressive from Zinedine Zidane’s men. The motivation to get back into the top two places will be enough to push Real Madrid to a win.

Iago Aspas has been unable to score in just three of his last 10 appearances. While the forward only has four goals in 12 games against Real Madrid, there is a good possibility for Iago Aspas to build on his recent form, as Sergio Ramos is unavailable for the game due to an injury. I would back Iago Aspas to score anytime in the game.

Real Madrid win – 1/2

Iago Aspas to score anytime – 11/8

Celta Vigo saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo were relieved to end 2017 La Liga matches on high after the win over Deportivo La Coruna, as there was a danger of the team failing to sustain a push for the top 10 places. The start to 2018 cannot have been better with the team managing a 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals. This first leg result must come as a surprise, as it is the second consecutive draw against Barcelona. Iago Aspas continues to be the main driver behind Celta de Vigo’s positive results, and the forward now has 11 goals for the campaign.

Celta Vigo Team News

Johny (cramp) and Kevin Vasquez (foot) are the players unavailable for Celta de Vigo.

Real Madrid Preview

Real Madrid’s hopes of salvaging the campaign may now lie with the cup competitions, as the La Liga title race for the 2017-18 campaign looks done and dusted. Madrid are a whopping 14 points behind Barcelona, who only dropped 24 points throughout the whole of last season. Real Madrid have been vastly inconsistent this season, as the lack of clinical finishing from their forwards has had the club big time. Cristiano Ronaldo continues to disappoint in the La Liga, but he is one of the top scorers at the club – alongside Isco and Marco Asensio – with four goals.

Real Madrid Team News

Daniel Carvajal is unavailable for the game after his red card against Barcelona. Karim Benzema (hamstring), Sergio Ramos (calf), and Luca Zidane (shoulder) are unavailable for manager Zinedine Zidane.
