Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Celta de Vigo are up against Real Sociedad in the opening game of the 2017-18 La Liga season. The game is at the Balaidos, which was the scene of several impressive performances for Celta de Vigo last season. However, the club’s extended progress in the Europa League took a toll on their domestic campaign and the club only finished 13th in the table last season. Real Sociedad were able to achieve an impressive set of results and qualify directly to the Europa League group stages for the 17th/18th season. The club finished sixth in the table – only three points behind Villarreal.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Celta de Vigo went through a horrendous run of form in the second half of the 2016-17 season. The club have so far been poor in pre-season, as the victory over Roma is their only solace. They are up against a Real Sociedad team which has been strengthened on the back of a good 16-17 season. Real Sociedad have picked up just one win over Celta de Vigo in the last six, while they are winless in the last five visits to the Balaidos. However, Celta de Vigo have just one home win over this opponent in this period. I would go with a draw. Iago Aspas has failed to score only once in the last four games against Real Sociedad. He scored the opening goal in Celta de Vigo’s last friendly game against Roma. I would go with Iago Aspas scoring any time in the game.

Draw – 9/4

While there have not been noteworthy departures, Celta de Vigo have brought in the likes of Maximiliano Gómez and Jozabed Sánchez in the summer transfer window. The club picked up 13 wins last season but suffered 19 defeats. Celta de Vigo also ended up conceding 69 goals – the second highest amongst the teams that survived the drop.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad had an impressive 2016-17 campaign after almost flirting with the possibility of Champions League qualification for much of the campaign. The club have brought in the likes of Adnan Januzaj and Diego Llorente. Both players are expected to add some significant depth to the team, which has seen the departure of Yuri Berchiche. Centre forward Carlos Vela will also leave the club for the upcoming MLS franchise Los Angeles FC. Real Sociedad had conceded the most (53 goals) amongst the top 10 clubs last season.
