After eliminating Los Blancos in the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey, the question is: can Celta de Vigo for a second time in one season hold Real Madrid off a domestic title? An upset Celta de Vigo home win has odds of 12/1 at Marathonbet.

Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions
Both Teams to Score
I don’t think both teams will score and at odds of 79/50 I think this is absolute value. Sure, the two teams have a track record of both teams to score to come in when they meet. In their 3 encounters this season, all 3 times both teams scored. But this Celta de Vigo side, in its current shape, I’m not so certain they will score. Only 4 goals scored in their last 8 matches is barely something to show for. Also, the odds offered for both teams to score at 49/100 are way too short for me.
Over 3,5 Match Goals
We all are aware of Real Madrid’s striking power, Los Blancos on their own can score 4 or 5 goals easily. Also, in 4 of their last 6 times both clubs faced each other, over 3,5 match goals landed. We also have noticed over the last weeks that a rotated Real Madrid side doesn’t lose any of its striking power. Over 3,5 match goals is offered at odds of 11/20.
Team Goals Prediction
My strong believe is, no matter what team Zidane will put out, Real Madrid will score enough goals against a terrible Celta side. Over 3,5 Real Madrid team goals has odds of 13/25, and will have some money on this.

Team News Celta Vigo v Real Madrid
Celta de Vigo
Surely enough, if doesn’t count in football, but god what if Guidetti just had knocked that 96th minute open chance in the back of the net. For coach Berizzo it would have meant that the last miserable weeks of Celta de Vigo would be erased from everybody’s memory. Now, with 2 more home matches to go this season in LaLiga, the Argentinian can only hope he doesn’t finish with a 10 matches without a victory.
E. Berizzo, who himself is suspended from coaching off the bench, has little injuries in his team. As far as things stand now, G. Rossi is the only unavailable player for Celta.
Three more matches to go for Los Blancos this season, starting with probably the easiest one. Not only is Celta in a horrible shape, the team also has nothing to play for. Add to this that Real Madrid knows how dangerous Celta can be, still having its Copa del Rey elimination in the back of their heads.
Real Madrid is 4 points shy of another title in LaLiga and has 2 matches to collect these. It is hard to believe a Real Madrid side in its current form will lose any points. With only 3 lost matches over the course of a full season it hard to see them lose any of their last two.
Zinedine Zidane still has the same 3 injured players as last weekend. Pepe, G. Bale and Daniel Carvajal won’t be available versus Celta de Vigo. And the latest news is that also Rodríguez will not be available tonight because of an injury.
