Real Madrid have a mountain to climb just to get back into contention for a title challenge in LaLiga, but they can begin a nice run of fixtures by winning at Celta Vigo.
Celta claimed a win and a draw against the Whites when knocking them out of the Copa del Rey last season, but Real have prevailed in six straight league meetings.
The Spanish champions have conceded in the last five of those victories, though, so 5/4 for an away win and both teams to score is the way to go with our Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid betting predictions.
A Look At Celta Vigo’s Betting Odds
Celta Vigo appear to be heading for mid-table mediocrity this term, although they did secure a couple of positive results in December.
Juan Carlos Unzue’s side drew 2-2 with Barcelona at Camp Nou and went into the Christmas break buoyed by a 3-1 success at Deportivo.
Spain striker Iago Aspas continued his excellent run of form by netting in both of those matches, making it 11 goals in his last nine league appearances.
The 30-year-old also came off the bench to fire in a stoppage-time penalty in a 1-0 cup triumph over Eibar.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Real Madrid started well in El Clasico before Christmas and were the better team in the first half, but ended up licking their wounds after collapsing to a 3-0 defeat in the second period.
There was at least a boost to moral when winning 3-0 at Numancia in the cup on Thursday, with Gareth Bale, Isco and hot prospect Borja Mayoral on the scoresheet.
“We are looking forward,” insisted boss Zinedine Zidane. “We are still in three competitions and we will fight for them right up to the last. We are going to go step by step and game by game.”
Toni Kroos hit the target in both league matches against Celta last season, bagging the last goal of the game on both occasions.
