Celta Vigo will face an impressive Real Sociedad team in an important match at the Reale Arena on Saturday in the 2022-23 La Liga season. Over the course of their league campaign, Celta Vigo, who are currently sitting in 14th place in the standings of La Liga, have been inconsistent.
Last week, the Galician team lost to Atletico Madrid by a narrow margin of 1-0, and they will need to work hard in this game to get back on track. On the other hand, Real Sociedad is currently in third place in the league table and has consistently performed above expectations this season.
In their previous match, La Real edged out Espanyol for a crucial 3-2 victory, and they will try to do better this weekend.
Real Sociedad will be determined to keep its spot in the top four after this season’s outstanding domestic performance. This season, players like Mikel Oyarzabal and Alexander Sorloth have improved, and they will try to stand out in this match.
Celta Vigo has Iago Aspas in their ranks, so they can easily upset a team on their day. However, Real Sociedad should be able to win this game because they appear to be the superior team.
Prediction: Real Sociedad 3-1 Celta Vigo
Real Sociedad has won 17 of the last 44 games against Celta Vigo, compared to Celta Vigo’s 12 victories. Celta Vigo has won 12 of those games. Real Sociedad has scored at least two goals in four of their last five matches against Celta Vigo in La Liga, their longest run of such victories against the team.
Real Sociedad could win three straight La Liga games at home against Celta Vigo for the first time since November 2013 after winning their last two games against the Galicians at home. Celta Vigo has lost two of their last four La Liga away matches against Basque teams, ending an unbeaten streak of five. In La Liga, Real Sociedad has only lost one of their last nine games.
Aritz Elustondo, Umar Sadiq, David Silva, Jon Pacheco, Mohamed Ali-Cho, Andoni Gorosabel, and Martin Merquelanz remain sidelined for Real Sociedad due to injury. Since the Basque team did not suffer any new injuries in their previous match against Espanyol, it is anticipated that they will field a similar starting lineup for this one.
With Mikel Oyarzabal and Takefusa Kubo provided Alexander Sorloth with support in the final third of the field. On the other hand, Asier Illarramendi could be replaced in the central midfield by Mikel Merino. Agustin Marchesin remains an injury absentee for Celta, but Unai Nunez will return to the team this weekend after serving his suspension.
Iago Aspas and Jorgen Strand Larsen will once again be in the final third of the field, and head coach Carvalhal is expected to resist the temptation to make changes from the team that started the loss to Atletico. Despite the presence of Franco Cervi, Lucas de la Torre should remain in a wide position and Haris Seferovic is likely to return to the bench.
