If we are talking about the main matches in Spain this week, it would be strange to ignore the leader of the Primera. With 21 points, Real Sociedad is in first place with a goal difference not typical for a leader (14-9). Celta, despite its 14th line (10 points), remains a dark horse and a hidden contender for a return to European competition.
In the last championship game, Real Sociedad very successfully met Celta twice: they defeated them in Vigo 4:1, and at home, they turned out to be somewhat more modest – 2:1. This Thursday, the Basques will not be able to act from a position of strength for most of the meeting due to objective difficulties with the line-up. But what they have should be enough to repel the attacks of the Galician attacking group for a long time.

Celta is capable of holding the ball for a long time, creating threats at the opponent’s goal, but it is lame when it comes to scoring. For this reason, the Blues will have to carry out quite a lot of attacks, and this should lead to a large number of corner kicks at the guests’ goal.
They perform them on average five times in 90 minutes at home – this figure can be guided by a prediction of total angels over (4.50) for the home team, with the coefficient of 3.00.
