Real Sociedad to Win

The home team is in poor form since they’ve failed to win in their last five league games. Of course, they’ve won their first major trophy in three decades in the meantime by beating their fierce local rivals Athletic Bilbao in the 2020 Copa del Rey final. Still, they need a win in this game to remain in contention for Europe next season, and we expect them to snap out of their bad run and get that win, especially since they’ve already beaten Celta in the first half of the season.

Total Goals Over 2.5

With 2.61 goals per match, Real Sociedad is 8th in this category in La Liga. Celta Vigo is even better since we see an average of 2.87 goals per match in their games. Furthermore, the first game between these two teams this season ended with five goals. In addition to this, Sociedad has gone over 2.5 total goals in three of their last five league games, same as Celta. So, our prediction of more than 2.5 goals seems reasonable.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Four of the last five Real Sociedad games in the league have ended with both teams scoring, while the same happened in three of the last five Celta Vigo games. Both teams have scored in 58% of Celta Vigo matches this season, and 55% of Real Sociedad games. Also, both teams have scored in the first duel between these teams in La Liga, which bodes well for our prediction that we’ll see both teams score in this game.

Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo preview: Can Real Sociedad get back on track?

With a spot in the Europa League on the line, Real Sociedad has to start winning again. Meanwhile, Celta is stuck in the middle of the table with little room for improvement. Keep reading for a more detailed look into the teams:

Real Sociedad

Despite their poor form in recent matches, Real Sociedad is still in play for the Europa League spot for next season since they are just one point behind Real Betis in 6th place. Of course, they need to start winning again since they’ve failed to do so in the last five La Liga matches, losing three of those in the process. The team has also been struggling with numerous injuries at the moment, which is certainly affecting their level of play.

Celta Vigo

The team from Vigo is 10th in the league right now, and chances are that they will stay in the mid-table region until the end. The team has been pretty inconsistent lately since they have won two games, lost three games, and drawn twice in the last eight La Liga matches. And we expect this to continue since that’s the way Celta has been pretty much the entire season. Alvarez, Blanco, and Mina are out of this game, with a few more players questionable but likely to play.
