Our football match prediction:
Estadio de Balaidos will host Saturday’s football match between Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad. Os Celeste aim to build on a thrilling 4-1 win over Roma in their last warm-up game and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the opening match of the season. Iago Aspas impressed in the triumph over the Serie A outfit and the experienced attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. It is well known that over the years Celta Vigo have turned their Estadio de Balaidos into a real fortress and we would not be surprised if the hosts pick up all three points from the match. Real Sociedad chiefs did well to sign the likes of Adnan Januzaj and Diego Llorente in the summer transfer window and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the 2017/2018 La Liga season. However, beating Celta Vigo on the road is easier said than done.
