Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Real Madrid have seen another busy summer as Zinedine Zidane looks to complete an outfit ready to battle for titles across competitions, finally opening La Liga campaign on Saturday with a trip to Vigo. They have been quite unpredictable and this has seen early criticism too, which makes a strong start a crucial task.
Los Blancos have seen losses to Atletico Madrid (3-7), Tottenham (0-1), and Roma (on penalties after a 2-2 draw) in five outings since late July, where their inconsistency at the back feels like an obvious problem. They have beaten Fenerbahce (5-3) and Salzburg (0-1) along the way and will now be desperate to build on such performances up front.
Celta have, on the other hand, seen two narrow losses late in their pre-season campaign and now have to recuperate despite no stakes involved aside from gaining match fitness, beaten by Tenerife (0-1) and Lazio (1-2). They will need more against Real, though, and have to look for an upset in front of the home fans.
Celticos have seen Maxi Gomez leave for Valencia and Santi Mina replace him up front on a free transfer, as Fran Escriba still bases his attacking prowess around Iago Aspas. They have been scoring goals against Los Blancos on the regular and this does promise another exciting contest here as well.
We will still back Real Madrid to bag the points and with the visitors last keeping a clean sheet at this ground back in 2003, going for an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/4 with Coral feels like a great value at this point.
We have gotten used to thrillers between the sides and Real Madrid usually take home the points lately. We now hope for another such occasion and with that in mind, we’re now also backing a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with MansionBet.
