Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Betting tips
The Balaidos will swirl on Sunday evening, when local pride Celta de Vigo takes on Real Sociedad. The home club is fighting for its life, because with eighteenth place it must fear relegation.
Celta de Vigo:
Celta de Vigo has a disastrous season and is still in the relegation zone with an eighteenth place. Nevertheless, people in Balaidos are convinced that La Celeste will make it and that it will also be on display in La Liga next season.
With four points from their last two duels, the blue shirts have the taste again indeed. The resurrection of Celta de Vigo is due to a man: Iago Aspas. He is sometimes described as The Messi of Celta, and I fully agree with that. Aspas is the great man of the Galician. He stood aside for a while due to an injury, but immediately after his return he took his team by the hand again. Last weekend, with two goals, he already had a large share in the 3-2 win at Villarreal and also in the crazy 3-3 draw last Wednesday at Huesca, Don Iago Aspas was again accurate. With thirteen goals, he is back on track for winning the Trofeo Zarra, the prize for the most scoring Spaniard in La Liga. However, Aspas will not be working on that, the only thing that counts now is avoiding relegation. Aspas’ mission is therefore not yet complete, because Celta de Vigo still has eight games to rise at least one place in the rankings.
With forty points and ninth place, Real Sociedad still has a tiny chance of winning European football. However, in the remaining eight rounds, the Basques will have to rise at least three more places and at least six points in the current number six in Seville. In any case, the Basques are not giving up the fight yet, because last Thursday, thanks to goals from Juanmi and Mikel Oyarzabal, they won 2-1 against direct rival Real Betis. “A well deserved win,” said trainer Imanol Alguacil. “We were a little awkward, but after that we were clearly the parent.”
Real Sociedad can travel to Vigo with a good feeling, although Alguacil also has to miss several strong players this weekend. David Zurutuza and Asier Illarramendi are still in the patchwork basket, while there is also a big question mark behind Adnan Januzaj’s name. Players like Igor Zubeldia, Luca Sangalli and Juanmi can therefore hope again for a base place.
