Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Betting tips
The mood could hardly be more different if Real Sociedad and Celta Vigo clash at La Liga on matchday 31 on Wednesday night – the table can be deceptive: the seventh against the sixteenth plays, but the mood among the relegation candidates is quite a bit better than the European aspirant.
The reason for this is the results of the weekend – and also how they came about: While Real Sociedad lost their home game against Real Madrid 1: 2 and suffered another setback in the fight for the Champions League, Celta landed a real liberation strike in the relegation battle.
Celta Vigo swept the guests from Alaves from Estadio Balaidos 6: 0 – a game in which the Galicians really did everything and which will now give them a lot of confidence before the trip to the Basque Country.
The self-confidence of the team from San Sebastian is meanwhile in the basement, because after the restart in Spain there was not a single triple point win for Real Sociedad. This also affects the quotes, such as the view in the game Real Sociedad vs. Celta Vigo shows on the odds.
Real Sociedad is really served. Not only because the Basques could not win four games in a row and had to lose the connection to the Champions League ranks, but also because of the way the home defeat against Real Madrid came about on Sunday evening.
“We are pretty angry,” winger Portu said after the game, in which three close decisions had been made per Real Madrid: The VAR had looked at the scenes in question, but decided in favor of the team from the capital. With a supposed handball Karim Benzemas, with a penalty per Madrid and with a passive offside Real Sociedad.
All three decisions were very controversial and were interpreted to the disadvantage of Real Sociedad. “We were clearly disadvantaged today, everyone saw that,” said midfielder Mikel Merino, who was said to have been in the field of sight of real keeper Thibaut Courtois after a shot – Real Sociedad’s goal to equalize had been denied.
Imanol Alguacil, Real Sociedad’s coach, did not want to comment on the controversial scenes. “Every detail matters, especially against a team like Real Madrid,” Alguacil said calmly, “I think we deserved more. It hurts that we couldn’t win. The game today was not one to be lost. ”
Due to the defeat, the Basques slipped to seventh place, as Villarreal scored a counter against Sevilla on Monday evening at 2-2 and thereby overtook Real Sociedad in the table – now with one more game. “We have to hold against it at most on Wednesday and score the three points,” said Portu, referring to the home game against Celta. The negative series is finally to be ended.
The Basque result crisis is reflected in the game Real Sociedad vs. Celta Vigo noticeable in the odds.
While heads at Real Sociedad, the mood at the opponent from Vigo could hardly be better. The impressive liberation strike at 6-0 against Alaves should make the relegation-threatened team from Galicia happy.
Celta really did everything against Alaves: dream goals, penalty whistles, standard goals, a relegation for the opponent – it went like clockwork with the canter victory, which Celta urgently needed. One point had separated the team of coach Oscar Garcia from the first relegation place 18, on which the RCD Mallorca stands, before the match day, now there are four.
And Celta also urgently needed the goals, because she had not been able to score four games in a row before – an amazing losing streak, which was now ended in an even more impressive manner.
But Garcia notes that his team has to keep their feet on the ground after the win: “We cannot be euphoric, because in two days we can get back to the ground,” warns the Celta coach of the difficult game in San Sebastian.
Celta had only won five measly wins this season, the 6-0 was victory number six. Unsurprisingly, Celta has not yet won two games in a row. But that should finally change now. “The goal is to be consistent by the end of the season and break the barrier that we can’t win two games in a row.”
