Celta Vigo News and Form

Celta Vigo had a battle to try and hold on to their top-flight status last season. They finished just one place above the drop zone. An end of season flourish of form helped to get them safe. The bulk of their problems came from a horrible time of things that they had on the road.

On home soil in La Liga they posted a W8 D5 L6 record for themselves. The notable thing about their results from their last home campaign was that they did beat the top two. Celta Vigo took 2-0 wins at home over both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. They returned goals pretty well at home, averaging 1.6 goals per home fixture.

Real Madrid News and Form

It was a season to forget then for Real Madrid who lost 12 league fixtures in the previous campaign. Away from home, they went W8 D4 L7. Something was going to be done over the summer. They were always going throw money at the problem and that is just what they have done, strengthening both attack and defence. There is a rumour that they are chasing Neymar as well.

Eden Hazard was their marquee signing but they have also added Rodrygo and Luka Jovic to their attacking ranks. Eden Hazard is the 9/2 second favourite in the first goalscorer market for this game, behind only new teammate Karim Benzema* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 15th, 2019 at 8:15 p.m.).

They have kept a hold of Gareth Bale who looked certain to be leaving at one point and they really should be delivering goals. The defence needs a lot of improvement from last season, as they conceded an average 1.6 goals per away game, taking a clean sheet in just 11% of road games. Real Madrid went D2 L3 in their last five away games of the 2018/19 campaign.
