Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 17.08.2019

Celta Vigo survived after a run of just one defeat in their final six 2018/19 La Liga (LL) fixtures (W2, D3). That sequence often saw them reach full potency in the latter stages, with all of the last seven goals they scored within that group of games arriving beyond the hour mark.
They also won four of their final five LL home games (D1), shutting out the opposition in the second half in three of those wins. The fact that they conceded a first-half penalty (to go 1-0 down) in two of their last four home league matches could be a concern.
Consigned to third place after just one win in their last five league games (D1, L3), Real Madrid lost their last two LL games of 2018/19, after losing the second half by a 2-0 scoreline (following a level first half).
A return of: D2, L3, from Real’s last five LL away matches wasn’t up to standard. Those three defeats saw Real lose one half ‘to-nil’, but their recent top-flight record here provides hope, with the ‘Galacticos’ winning after a won first half on four of their last five LL visits.
Players to watch: Iago Aspas has scored in each of Celta’s last four LL home wins, being the first Celta scorer on three occasions.
Stat attack: Four of Celta’s last five LL home games against the 2018/19 top-three saw Celta score the final match goal, and beyond the 80th minute!
Real have won both halves in three of their last four LL victories at Celta.
Each game in that same trio of wins by a margin of 2+ goals saw them score exactly three times in one half.
