Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Preview
Los Blancos begin the weekend six points behind leaders Atletico Madrid and know they have little margin for error if they are to retain their La Liga title.
The last few weeks have seen Madrid score late goals against Huesca, Real Sociedad, Atletico Madrid and Elche to pick up points in matches which looked lost – keeping their title hopes alive.
Zidane’s men have scored in 21 of their last 22 competitive fixtures and should have little trouble betting in Vigo against a Celta side who have the third-worst defensive home record this season, conceding 19 goals in 13 league games.
Caudet’s men have, though, scored in eight of their last 10 league games at Estadio Balaidos and certainly have enough firepower to get on the score sheet.
Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 3/4 (1.75) with bet365 and has paid out in each of Real Madrid’s last four matches in all competitions, making it a strong selection for this La Liga clash.
