Our match prediction:
Celta Vigo will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sporting Gijon when they take on Real Betis at their Estadio de Balaidos on Saturday night. Os Celeste are on the right track to book their place in the European competitions, but they need to keep on collecting points if they are to turn their dream into reality. Los Beticos, on the other hand, are on the right track to meet their goal (survival) and a win over Celta could even see them climb to the top half of the standings. Nonetheless, it is well known that over the years Eduardo Berizzo’s team have turned their Estadio de Balaidos into a real fortress and that is the main reason why we predict that hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. In their last meeting in Galicia Celta recorded a routine 4-2 win over Betis and we would not be surprised if history repeats itself.
