Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad Prediction:

“” If you look at the previous matches, there is only one possible way for this match to finish, and that is with a Real Sociedad victory, and that is what we are predicting to happen.””

Prediction: Celta Vigo 0-3 Real Sociedad

La Liga: Historical La Liga leaders Real Sociedad travel to Balaidos to take on Celta Vigo on Sunday evening. The Basque outfit is now just a point before Real Madrid near the peak of the standings, having played a game more than the defending champions.

They dropped momentum on Thursday night when they were beaten 1-0 by Napoli at Anoeta in the Europa League.

Celta, who just escaped relegation last year, haven’t begun this one any better. They’ve managed a win in their opening seven matches, and just have six points on the board so far.

This game would be the battle of the team’s leading scorers up to now against the group with the joint least number of intentions. Real Sociedad have scored 14 times in seven matches, while Celta has managed only four goals in the same variety of matches.
