Our match prediction:
Celta Vigo will be looking to bounce back from a heavy 7-1 loss to Real Madrid when they take on Real Sociedad on Saturday evening. Os Celeste failed to make life difficult for the star-studded capital club at the weekend, but they are definitely capable of grabbing something from the Real Sociedad clash. La Real failed to turn their dominance into more goals in Sunday’s game against Levante and it remains to be seen if coach Eusebio Sacristan is going to count on experienced attacker Imanol Agirretxe this time out. Celta Vigo are undefeated in previous four home fixtures in La Liga, but Saturday’s clash against Real Sociedad will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Eusebio Sacristan’s charges outplayer the likes of Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao away from home last month and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Basques are going to share the spoils with Os Celeste on Saturday.
