Real Sociedad 3/4 to beat Celta Vigo in Wednesday’s Copa del Ray clash
Competition: Copa del Ray
Market: Real Sociedad win
Odds: 3/4 @ Bet 365
Two sides looking to book their spot in the final 16 of this year’s Copa del Rey, Real Sociedad will host Celta Vigo on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, after playing out a 1-1 draw away at Celta Vigo last month, Sociedad should be confident about booking their spot in the final 16 of this year’s Copa del Ray. Despite a sluggish start to the season, they have done an impressive job of bouncing back and will also be looking to climb up the La Liga table. In their opening 14 games, they have won five, drawn four and lost five, scoring 17 and conceding 16 in return. Now sat just two points adrift of the European positions, Sociedad are enjoying their brightest run of the new campaign. The hosts have lost just one of their last five and are unbeaten in their last four matches at home.
As for the visitors, losing 2-1 to Sociedad a fortnight ago, it has been a very tough run for Celta Vigo following on from a bright start. In their 14 La Liga matches this season, they have won just four, drawing five and losing five, scoring 25 and conceding 22 in return. No team outside of the relegation zone holds a worse defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of form, Celta have now managed to pick up just two wins in their last 12 matches across all competitions. The visitors have also now failed to win any of their last five matches away from Abanca-Balaídos.
