Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
During the week, Celta Vigo and Real Madrid had to race in the Copa del Rey. While Celta did not make an impossible starting point for the second leg against Barcelona in the 1-1 draw at home, the Royal team is almost certain they will be in the quarter-finals after a 3-0 win at second division side Numancia. Real Madrid has not smelt of fame, but has granted some stars a break that will be on board again on Sunday.
Celta Vigo :
The second competitive match this season against the big FC Barcelona has not lost Celta Vigo. After the Galicians were able to take away a 2-2 draw in La Liga away in Barcelona, they remained unbeaten in the first leg of the knockout stages of the Copa del Rey against the Catalans. In the end, it was 1-1 against a admittedly not in full squat Barcelona. In the second leg at Camp Nou next week everything is possible. Twice Barcelona in the Cup and in between Real Madrid in La Liga. Celta Vigo is certainly not to be envious of this program, but against the Royal, Celta pays off his chances at home.
Celta Vigo is only eleventh in La Liga and has lost almost half of his seventeen league games. Eight bankruptcies are, to be exact, besides six wins and three draws. At home, the record with three wins, two draws and three defeats is not necessarily scary. Compared to Real Madrid, La Liga has not had much to gain in recent years anyway. The last six direct matches in league play have all lost to Celta Vigo, with results starting with the oldest of 0: 3, 2: 4, 1: 3, 1: 7, 1: 2 and 1: 4. That Celta Vigo but also can prevail against the Royal, showed the club in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey in the preseason. In the Santiago Bernabeu, the Galicians won 2-1 away, then home 2-2 to reach the semi-finals.
Even without stars like Toni Kroos or Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid traveled during the week as a favorite to CD Numancia to deny the second division his first leg in the second round of the Copa del Rey. The Royal won with 3: 0, which sounds clear, but in fact not very impressive and sometimes even a little happy. Real Madrid took the lead on penalties on penalties before Numancia decimated after just one hour and then hit the crossbar in defeat. Only in the 89th minute had the second penalty – a rather flattering – ago to screw the score to 2: 0, before the former Wolfsburg Borja Mayoral added in injury time to 3: 0. Real Madrid may not care about the way the victory came about, but the prevailing opinion is that it’s definitely too high.
Now the Royal want to follow up in La Liga, where in the last game of the last calendar year, the nasty 0-3 home defeat in the Clasico against FC Barcelona gave. Due to the club World Cup, in which Real Madrid participated and won, the Royal have a catch-up game in the hindquarters, but even a victory would not help at least with regard to defending the title in La Liga. The gap to FC Barcelona is currently 14 points! Right now Real Madrid is only in fourth place. Even Atletico Madrid in second has already five points more, the Sevilla FC on the Europa League rank five only two fewer meters. Away, Real Madrid won their first four games in La Liga all. In the last three away games, there were only two draws and one defeat.
