Celta vs Real Madrid match preview for the La Liga fixture, written by experienced sports betting expert.
Saturday’s Spanish La Liga action features an exciting clash between Celta Vigo and Real Madrid. Celta avoided relegation in season 2018/19. The team from Vigo finished in 17th place. ‘The Sky Blues’ were solid at home with 29 earned points there. Celta finished the season very well at ‘Estadio Municipal de Balaídos’ and recorded four wins in the last five games. During the summer, ‘The Celts’ played in five friendly matches, in which they won on three occasions and lost two times.
In the summer, Zinedine Zidane tried to strengthen the defence with Éder Militão and Ferland Mendy, while for the attack, the French specialist attracted Eden Hazard, Luka Jović and Rodrygo. Real Madrid played seven friendly games during the preparation for the new season. The only two wins in the regular time were against Fenerbahce and Red Bull Salzburg, while the team also recorded a 3-7 loss versus Atletico Madrid.
The fixtures between both sides recently have many goals, while in Vigo were scored at least four goals. I expect the same to happen again, and both teams to find the net several times. I am not entirely confident in Real Madrid, because it seems Zidane has much work to do.
The new big star of ‘Los Blancos’ is Eden Hazard and I expect him to mark his debut in La Liga with a goal. The Belgium winger started in all seven friendly games during the summer. However, he scored just one goal – for the 1-0 victory over Red Bull Salzburg. Of course, Eden will be part of the starting eleven on Saturday and maybe will record his first whole game for his new club since his arrival.
My Celta vs Real Madrid predictions are Eden Hazard to Score at odds around 2.05. I will also back Real Madrid 3-2 Correct Score at odds around 19.00. Bet Heaven recommends placing this bet at Bet365.
