August 20th marks the beginning of a new season for Celta De Vigo and Real Sociedad, as Celta Vigo tries to right the ship after a poor season. Even though Real Sociedad has the better odds to win the Primera Liga (300/1 to 750/1) after a 6th place finish, Celta De Vigo is favored to win the fixture.
Celta De Vigo – (11/8)
Real Sociedad – (2/1)
Draw – (9/4)
Goal Over/Under – 2.5
Over – (1/1)
Under – (4/5)
Both Teams to Score
Yes – (3/4)
No – (1/1)
Starting backward, both teams like to score as much as they enjoy getting scored on. Last season both teams scored near the same goal totals, Real Sociedad’s 59 to Celta De Vigo’s 53. The difference between Sociedad’s 6th place finish and Vigo’s 13th were goals against; 53 to 69, a difference of +6 to -16. Celta Vigo hopes that the departure of Defender Yuri Berchiche will open up some shooting lanes.
Returning for Real Sociedad are 3 +8 goal scorers from last season, including Jose and Juanmi, who put in 12 and 11 respectively.
On the other side of the ball, Celta Vigo has star forward Iago Aspas’ 19 goal season to lean on, and not much else. The club has no returning goal scorers of more than 4 goals, so it’s all on the Spanish forward.
Celta Vigo 1 – 2 Real Sociedad
Its more than fair to assume Vigo will suffer another weak season, and Real Sociedad seems to be trending in the same direction. But where the advantage still lies is on the offensive side of the ball, where they may not have scored too many more goals, but do have a more defined attacking force.
Sociedad seems to be a safe bet to win, as well as both teams scoring. Extra winnings come comes off of the belief Vigo will continue to get scored on like they did a year ago.Bet Now!
