Real Betis vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Betis opened the season with a 2-0 loss against Barcelona. Quique Setién always knew that the trip to the Camp Nou would be one of the difficult games of the season. Alin Tosca’s own goal in the 36th minute broke the deadlock. Sergi Roberto doubled Barcelona’s advantage in just three minutes later, while Lionel Messi struck the woodwork three times in the game. Celta de Vigo suffered a late 3-2 defeat against Real Sociedad in their opening league match. Maxi Gomez twice provided the home team with an advantage, but goals from Mikel Oyarzabal and Juanmi kept the visitors in the game. A late penalty from Willian Jose provided a victory for the away team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

An incredible four out of the last five meetings between the two clubs at the Benito Villamarin has finished as a draw. Even in the recent six meetings, there have been three draws with Real Betis managing just a solitary win. However, Celta de Vigo come into the game on the back of a poor result which once again highlighted the club’s defensive issues. Real Betis put in a decent shift against Barcelona. I would go with a win for Real Betis. Even going back to last season, the last seven matches involving Celta de Vigo has produced over 2.5 goals. The club continue to struggle at the back even after making several additions in the summer transfer window. Real Betis possess a potent forward in the form of Sergio Leon. I would go with this game to produce over 2.5 goals.

Real Betis Preview

Real Betis began the new season with a loss against Barcelona, but the team did well to only come back with a 2-0 loss. Barcelona struck the woodwork three times in the game and the defeat could have been far worse for Setién and his men. The club have invested substantially in the transfer market with the likes of Víctor Camarasa coming into the squad. However, Sergio Leon is the biggest threat up front for the club. He had the best opportunity in the game against Barcelona. Last season, he finished with a return of 10 goals in the 33 league matches with Osasuna.

Real Betis Team News

Víctor Camarasa (ankle), Ryad Boudebouz (knee), and Junior Firpo (thigh) are the injury worries for Real Betis coming into the game.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo manager Juan Carlos Unzué began his career at the club in disappointing fashion with an opening day defeat against Real Sociedad. The manager will feel that the team could have done better to avoid conceding least two of the three goals. The result once again raises concerns about the club’s home form, which had a disastrous end in 2016-17 season. The result against Real Sociedad means that Celta de Vigo have managed just one win at the Balaidos since March 2016. A positive for the club against Real Sociedad were the goals from Maxi Gomez.

Celta Vigo Team News

John Guidetti (broken collarbone) is the only injury worry for Celta de Vigo ahead of this game.
