Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Celta Vigo did remarkably well to beat Deportivo La Coruna in the Galician derby, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s football match against title holders Real Madrid. Os Celeste are tough to beat at home, but given the importance of the game for the Galician club, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on Unzue’s troops. Los Blancos, on the other hand, suffered a heart-breaking 3-0 loss to Barcelona at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in their last league match and, as a result, they now have slim chances of defending the domestic trophy. This has to go down as a must-win game for the capital club and we predict they will fight tooth and nail against Celta. In their last meeting at Estadio de Balaidos Real Madrid outplayed Celta Vigo and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Hugo Mallo):
Hugo Mallo is a Spanish footballer who plays for Celta Vigo as a full back. Mallo, who is a capable of playing at centre back if needed, was born in Marin on 22 June, 1991 and he has been playing for Os Celeste since 2009.

The Celta defender has three caps for Spain U21 team and he played for the U19 and the U20 teams as well in the past. On 9 January, 2013, Mallo suffered a serious knee injury and, as a result, he was forced to miss the rest of the season. The right-footed player has a contract with Celta Vigo which expires on 30 June, 2019. You should bear in mind that he scored one goal in 34 appearances for the Galician outfit in the 2015/2016 Primera Division campaign. In the 2014/2015 campaign he scored four goals for Celta in the national championship.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid are a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 11 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world. Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards. The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
