Celta – Real Sociedad
Celta de Vigo hosts Real Sociedad in a match from the first round of the Spanish La Liga. We are about to give you our soccer picks for today for this clash.
This is a game between two decent Spanish teams. Last year Celta participated in the Europa League, but didn’t qualify for this season’s edition of the tournament, ending the season at 13th place. For a certain amount of time they had good chances of attacking the Top 6, but their poor form at the end of the campaign cost them everything.
It was different for Real Sociedad, though. They ended the season at 6th place, which allowed them to qualify for the Europa League. Eusebio Sacristan’s team is playing a good attacking football and we have all the reasons to expect positive results from them this season as well.
During the summer both teams did some business on the transfer market.
Celta signed Stanislav Lobotka, Jozabed, Maxi Gomez and Andrew Hjulsager, while Fabian Orellana was sold to Valencia for 3 million euro. Meanwhile Jose Naranjo left the club to sign with the Belgian Genk.
In the same time Real Sociedad made a strong move on the summer market, paying 10 million euro to Manchester United for the Belgian talent Adnan Januzaj. Meanwhile 6 more million were paid to Real Madrid for Diego Llorente.
Meanwhile the defender Yuri moved to PSG, who paid 16 million for his services.
If we take into account last season, than maybe Real Sociedad are a slight favourite in this match. But everyone who follows Spanish football knows that it’s always difficult to play in Vigo. Have this in mind.
These were our soccer picks for today for the match between Celta de Vigo and Real Sociedad. Whatever you have decide, we wish you good luck!
