Celta vs Real Madrid
Celta host Real Madrid in the 12th round of Spain La Liga.
Celta are 13th in the table, while Real Madrid are 6th, so the three points are very important for both clubs. We all know Celta Vigo are always hard team to visit and against Real they often did a spectacular matches with a lot of goals. Celta stats at home are 2W-3D-1L and goal difference 11:6, so that's totally in favour of the pick. They have approximately 2 goals scored per home game, while receiving one. Against Real I expect almost the same scenario, but maybe the goals in Celta's net will be more than one.
Real changed the coach and in their 3 matches with Santiago Solari they still didn't receive a goal( 0:4 against Melilla, 2:0 against Valladovid and 0:5 against Plzen in CL). Positive stats for sure, but Celta is absolutely capable of scoring them at least one goal with a player like Iago Aspas infront. '
Celta will miss Lobotka, Jensen and Sisto for this game, while Real Madrid will be once again without almost all of their main defensive line. Marcelo, Varane, Carvajal are all out, together with Vallejo and Mariano Diaz.
With such problem in defense it must happen a miracle Celta not to score Madrid at least one time, while the visitors attacking players finally started to show some form and Benzema started t score goals. With the help of Asensio, Bale and Isco I think they are also more than capable of scoring at least one or two times.
My pick in BTTS+over 2.5 goals at 1.72 odds in bet 365.
