Celta will host Real Madrid at Balaidos within the 18th round of the Spanish Primera. Both teams had Copa del Rey matches last mid-week and both may add the encounters to their asset. I.e. the opponents are approaching the upcoming game in a good mood with great desire to increase their point balance.
Celta hosted Barcelona at their home ground on Thursday. Barca came to Vigo without Messi and Suarez, but as it is known, even with their reserve squad the Catalans may defeat anyone in Primera. As a result, the match ended in a 1:1 draw, whereas Celestes ere even losing during the course of the match 0:1. After 17 played rounds Celta are on the 11th position in Primera tournament table with 21 points in the asset, which is three points less than Eibar, which are on the seventh place that can probably become the Eurocup spot.
Real concluded the year 2017 with a devastating defeat from Barcelona, which happened at Santiago Bernabeu. Zidane’s team had a not very pleasant holidays, but came out to play the first match of 2018 against Numancia with a great desire to prove that Blancos are ready to fight on all fronts, including Primera. Real’s gap to Barcelona is 14 points at the moment, besides, there’s no guarantee for the Royals, that they will occupy the position in the top-four.
Celta are a good team, but Celestes have nothing to confront the motivated Real with. A bet on the acting champions of Spain, Europe and the World looks more than logical in this couple.
Prediction for the match: Real Madrid to win
