Real Madrid Vs Celta Vigo Live Football Score 20 Mar 2021
Real Madrid to Win
With Real in good form and trying to catch up to Atletico in the race for the title, we are confident that Los Blancos will give everything they have to pick up a win here. Additionally, Real Madrid has been very successful against Celta in the past, winning four of their last five head-to-head matches.
Total Goals Over 2.5
If we can conclude anything from past meetings between these two teams, it’s that they tend to play high-scoring games. In three of their past five head-to-head matches we’ve seen three or more goals. The other two both ended with 2 goals, so it was also close. With that in mind, our prediction is that we will see plenty of goals in this game.
Karim Benzema to Score Anytime
The brightest spot in Real Madrid’s team this season has been Karim Benzema. The French striker has been amazing, with 15 goals in La Liga and 5 in Champions League. Benzema also scored four goals in eleven games against Celta. While that is not the greatest record, he is in fantastic form and we expect this to continue.
Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid preview: An anticipated duel
One of the more interesting matches of the round, the duel between Celta and Real Madrid is bound to bring some excitement. So, let’s take a closer look at these two teams.
The team from Vigo is having a good season since they are sitting in the middle of the table, with 8 points behind the last Europa League spot. They have only one loss in the previous five games, with two draws and two wins. While they probably don’t have European ambitions, Celta is playing well enough to have hope. Hugo Mallo will sit this match out since he is suspended, while Blanco, Mor, and Alvarez are injured.
After a turbulent start of the season, Los Blancos seem to have found their stride. They’ve gone past Atalanta to reach the Champions League quarter-finals and they’ve won five of their previous seven La Liga matches, staying in contention for the title. Despite struggling in the last round, they’ve pulled a win over Elche in the last minutes thanks to in-form Benzema. Hazar, Carvajal, Diaz, and Odriozola are out for this match due to injuries.
