Celta Vigo v Real Madrid betting tips
Celta Vigo are currently in 11th place in the La Liga standings and have improved after a decidedly slow start to their season. The Galician outfit held Real Betis to a 0-0 stalemate last week. Celta will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.
Real Madrid put in a shocker against Barcelona just before the international break. Benzema&co will be desperate to put that right. The price on away looks good value for a side who have won seven of their last nine away.
Iago Aspas is not only the top Celta goalscorer but he is their most carded player with eight bookings this season. He has two cards from his last five and might be asked to defend more here so back him to be carded at any time.
An inspection of past results between these clubs going back to 16/03/2019 reveals that these encounters have been pretty painful for Celta Vigo. They have not been able to get themselves any victories at all whereas Real Madrid have just been too good for them, winning in 83 per cent of those ties.
