Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad La Liga, betting tips and match preview

UEFA Europa League semi-finalists Celta Vigo are looking for their 1st win in 7 matches while Real Sociedad are looking to grab 1 of the final European spots in the Spanish La Liga table.

Celta Vigo will have some regrets in their decision to focus their efforts on winning the UEFA Europa League.

That decision has seen them drop out of the Spanish La Liga top 10 and the effect of their loss to Man United in the semi-finals has seen their morale drop which has also affected their form in the Spanish La Liga.

Celta Vigo are currently 13th in the Spanish La Liga table with 44 points, from 37 league matches, 2 points behind 11th placed Malaga and 5 points ahead of 14th placed Las Palmas.

Celta Vigo's recent home form is not great – they have lost all 5 of their last 5 home matches in the Spanish La Liga, scoring 1 goal and conceding 11.

Real Sociedad have had a good season that could finish with them in one of the European positions.

Real Sociedad are currently 7th in the Spanish La Liga table with 63 points, the same points total as 6th placed Athletic Bilbao, and 1 point behind 5th placed Villarreal.

Real Sociedad could end up in a European spot if they win this match and 1 of the 2 teams ahead of them fail to do the same.

Real Sociedad have lost only 1 of their last 6 league matches, winning 3 and drawing the other 2.

Real Sociedad are currently unbeaten in their last 2 league matches which is a good run considering they played Valencia and Sevilla.
