Real Madrid will face Celta Vigo in week 30 of the 2022/2023 Spanish League which can be watched via live streaming on ESPN+ on Saturday, April 22 2023, ET.
Real Madrid will face Celta Vigo at the Bernabéu on Saturday, hoping to close the gap on league leaders Barcelona, who are 11 points ahead of them. The champions are also in good form after reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League with a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Tuesday night.
However, Real Madrid cannot afford to be complacent, as they suffered their first home league defeat of the season when they lost 3-2 to Villarreal last time out in La Liga. Carlo Ancelotti will not want a repeat of that performance, as Real Madrid have not lost back-to-back home league games since March 2019.
Celta Vigo are still in contention for a top-half finish, but their 1-0 loss to Mallorca on Monday night ended their seven-game unbeaten run in the league. They would like to celebrate their 100th anniversary by beating Madrid, which they have not done in the league since May 2014.
They have not won at Madrid in La Liga since November 2006, which shows how difficult it will be for Celta, even if they have not lost away in the league since February. Their biggest challenge in the coming months might be keeping midfielder Gabri Veiga, who is reportedly wanted by Madrid and other clubs in the summer.
The last time these two teams met in La Liga, Real Madrid won 4-1 at Celta Vigo in August. Karim Benzema scored a penalty for Real Madrid, and Luka Modric, Vinícius Júnior, and Federico Valverde also scored for them. Iago Aspas scored a penalty for Celta Vigo.
Benzema has been vital for Real Madrid this season, scoring 14 goals, which is the second most in the league. Rodrygo scored twice against Chelsea, and five of his last six goals have come after the 50th minute. Aspas has been Celta Vigo’s main goal threat, scoring 12 times, including six first goals of the match. Carles Pérez scored Celta’s last goal in two of their last four matches and is also dangerous late on.
All of the last seven head-to-heads between Real Madrid and Celta Vigo have had goals in both halves. This suggests that this match could be an entertaining one, with both teams looking to score and win. Real Madrid have the edge over Celta Vigo in recent history, but Celta Vigo could cause an upset if they play with confidence and creativity.
