Real Madrid’s Quest Continues: Celta Vigo Up Next

Key Stats
– Real Madrid have a 100% record in the 2023/24 La Liga season so far.
– Celta Vigo haven’t tasted victory against Real Madrid since January 2017.
– Jude Bellingham boasts three goals in two games, making an explosive start to his La Liga campaign.

Celta Vigo have experienced a tumultuous time recently. Despite their ambition to achieve stability in La Liga after a disappointing finish last season, the Galicia-based side have faced challenges. The appointment of ex-Newcastle chief Rafa Benitez this summer was supposed to herald a positive change, but early signs suggest it hasn’t fully ignited the spark. With just a solitary point from their initial two matches of the 2023/24 campaign, including a concerning 2-0 defeat to Osasuna at home, there’s much to ponder for the Sky Blues.

Moreover, history doesn’t favour Celta when it comes to facing Real Madrid. Not only did they suffer a 4-1 defeat at Balaidos against Los Blancos last year, but they’ve also been on the losing side in their previous six encounters with the Spanish heavyweights.

Team News: Celta Vigo Celta Vigo’s woes might continue with key player Goncalo Paciencia sidelined due to a pre-season calf injury. Their concerns deepen with 25-year-old Carles Perez’s fitness hanging in the balance. Yet, they can place some hope in the boots of Iago Aspas. Despite not opening his goal account this season, the ex-Liverpool striker’s experience will be crucial for Benitez’s side.

Real Madrid’s Resurgence Real Madrid seem to be on a mission. After ending 10 points behind the La Liga summit last season, Carlo Ancelotti’s troops have launched into the new campaign with a vengeance. With two resounding wins against Athletic Bilbao and Almeria, the title aspirants are one of the few teams to kick off with a perfect record. Positioned at the pinnacle of the La Liga table and demonstrating an impressive offensive flair, Ancelotti’s men are the favourites this weekend.

Team News: Real Madrid Jude Bellingham, the England international, has been a revelation. With three goals in just two La Liga matches, his presence will be pivotal. But Real will have to navigate around a series of injuries. Key players including Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, and Ferland Mendy will be missing, opening a potential spot for Luka Modric to reclaim his starting role.

Key Stats to Consider

  • Real Madrid secured a 2-0 win against Celta Vigo in their previous encounter.
  • Los Blancos have a six-match winning streak against the Sky Blues.
  • Real Madrid’s away form against Celta Vigo is dominant, with the aggregate score reading 16-6 from their last five visits to Balaidos.


1. Real Madrid’s March Forward

Prediction: Real Madrid to Win

The storied fixture between Celta Vigo and Real Madrid is set to be a captivating affair. One that holds significant weight, particularly when you consider the contrasting fortunes of both teams in the recent past. Despite Celta’s determination to break free from their recent struggles, there are key indicators that suggest Los Blancos are better poised to take the spoils.

Let’s break down the form guide. Real Madrid, under the stewardship of Carlo Ancelotti, are seemingly invincible at the start of this season. Not only have they managed to clinch victory in their initial two matches, but they have also showcased a lethal proficiency in front of the goal. They’ve dispatched opponents with a tactical acumen that’s been missing in previous seasons. Their attacking prowess is evident, having netted an average of 2.5 goals per game, while their defensive solidity ensures they concede a paltry 0.5 goals per game. The stats simply affirm their dominance.

On the flip side, Celta Vigo, even with the experienced Rafa Benitez at the helm, have been left yearning for a moment of magic. Their opening two fixtures have only fetched them a single point, and their goalscoring woes (averaging only 0.5 goals a game) are glaring. If past encounters are anything to go by, Real Madrid seem to have Celta’s number. With Los Blancos having snatched 13 points from the available 15 in their recent La Liga outings and Celta on a six-game losing streak against Real, the evidence leans heavily towards an away win.

2. Final Scoreline: More of the Same?

Prediction: 2-0 to Real Madrid

History has a peculiar way of repeating itself in football. Last April, these two sides clashed, and the Madrid giants emerged victorious with a 2-0 scoreline. Now, diving into the data and considering the current forms, there’s a compelling case to be made for a repeat performance.

Real Madrid’s defensive setup has been formidable. They’ve allowed just a single goal in their past two fixtures. Their backline, further bolstered by the likes of Daniel Carvajal and David Alaba, showcases the right mix of experience and youthful energy. Celta, in contrast, have found it challenging to break defensive lines, with their attacking returns being below par.

Couple this with Celta’s inability to win any of their last 14 straight meetings across all competitions against Real Madrid, and the picture becomes clearer. Celta’s home ground, Balaidos, has proven to be a happy hunting ground for Madrid, with the visitors having won their previous five trips there. The aggregate score of 16-6 over these fixtures underscores Madrid’s dominance.

3. Bellingham: The Man to Watch

Prediction: Jude Bellingham to Score

Summer recruit for Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham, has undeniably caught the eye. The young English midfielder’s start in the Spanish capital can best be described as meteoric. Just two appearances into his La Liga journey and Bellingham has already netted three. That’s not a flash in the pan; that’s a statement of intent.

Bellingham’s intrinsic ability to be at the right place at the right time makes him a persistent threat in front of the goal. He’s not just relying on opportunities; he’s creating them. Averaging over four shots per game, Bellingham is persistently knocking on the opponent’s door. Furthermore, the data reveals he’s generated more expected goals (1.29) than any other player in the Real Madrid squad. Given Celta Vigo’s defensive vulnerabilities and Bellingham’s current form, it’s hard to look past him making a mark on the scoresheet once more.
