Team Form

Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo gets the chance of redeeming themselves from a disappointing loss against Espanyol as they face Real Betis.


Luis Enrique expressed his frustration over Espanyol’s narrow win against their squad, stating that their inability to create scoring opportunities resulted to their defeat. It also prevented them from securing a safer spot in the table. Currently, they are two (2) notches away from the relegation zone and are forced to engage in a survival battle.


Fortunately for the squad, their next match is pitted against Real Betis, which sits at the rock bottom part of the table. They should be able to make a difference in this encounter, unless another upset comes to life.


Real Betis

A 5-0 thrashing from Real Madrid signaled Real Betis’ early exit in the Primera Division. Accumulating a mere eleven (11) points, the club is still five (5) points short to get out of the bottom pit.


In order for them to survive, their current situation requires them to win all their upcoming matches.
Real Betis has not won during its last six (6) matches and unless a major change is seen, their feared exit might materialize earlier than expected.


Online betting’s top pick: Celta Vigo

Seeing Celta Vigo pick themselves up adds interest to this match. Relatively, seeing Real Betis’ attempt to defy the odds will spark some excitement.
