Reason For Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

The new season won’t have come around quick enough for Real Madrid, who will be desperate to hit back after a miserable 2018/19 campaign. Los Merengues finished 3rd in La Liga and 19 points behind El Clasico rivals Barcelona, whilst they also suffered heavy defeats upon exiting the Copa Del Rey and Champions League to Barca and Ajax respectively.

Boss Zinedine Zidane failed to make an immediate impact in terms of results when he returned to the club in March to replace Santiago Solari, but better times are now surely around the corner for Real, who won nine major honours under Zizu between 2015-2018, including three consecutive Champions League crowns.

Zidane will have benefited hugely from a full pre-season to assess his squad and welcome a raft of exciting new faces to the Bernabeu. Eden Hazard’s £90m move from Chelsea is clearly the marquee signing of the bunch which also includes Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Rodrygo and Ferland Mendy. All could play a part at Balaidos this Saturday, barring the latter, who is struggling with a hamstring injury.

It will likely take some time for Zidane to blood his new crop and find his best XI, and although it’s important not to read too much into pre-season form, results indicate that the Frenchman is someway off getting things right and bringing back some defensive stability to the side. Los Merengues were beaten by the likes of Bayern Munich, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid over the summer – the latter contest ending 3-7 in favour of their cross-city adversaries.

Saturday’s opponents Celta Vigo have had a fairly quiet summer by all accounts – and that’s probably just what the doctor ordered for Celestes, who will be looking to stabilise this term and re-establish themselves as a mid-table team.

Fran Escriba steered the club away from the threat of relegation after a woeful run under former boss Miguel Cardoso, and they will take confidence into this weekend’s encounter after finishing the season strongly – particularly at Balaidos where they accrued 13 points from their final five outings. Star striker Maxi Gomez has departed for Valencia over the summer, however Santi Mina has moved in the opposite direction to re-join Celta after a four year stint at Mestalla.

Historically, this has been one of the most thrilling match-ups in Spanish football and the last ten meetings between the pair have produced a massive 45 goals, including a 2-4 victory for Real here last term. There’s no reason why we can’t expect more of the same this Saturday – particularly as it’s the opening day, where games typically get stretched. Real’s defensive problems in pre-season also point to another high scoring affair, whilst simultaneously it’s more or less certain that the away side will score goals. Indeed, Real have only failed to score at least twice in one of their last 11 games against Celestes.

Five of the last six meetings have produced over 3.5 goals, and that’s our main tip for Saturday’s action, with odds-against looking generous. Real to win and both teams to score should also be considered (the outcome in three of Real’s last five visits to Balaidos. Los Merengues have also won ten of their last 13 games away to Celta) with the visitors just fancied to come out on top, and 2-3 stands out at decent odds in the correct score market based on the likelihood of goals on both sides.
