Bet of the Day: Real Madrid to be given a hard time by Celta Vigo

Reigning champions under pressure in La Liga

While the FA Cup takes the main stage this afternoon, there’s plenty to enjoy in Spain where five games are taking place.

And today’s Bet of the Day focuses on Real Madrid’s trip to Celta Vigo.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is under increasing pressure, with his side trailing Barcelona by a substantial margin.

And hosts Celta have proven a tough nut to crack this term, so Coral’s Bet of the Day is Real Madrid to win and both teams to score at 7/5.

Juggling cup and league

The majority of Zidane’s squad should be rested and ready to go. Real played a much-changed side in the midweek Copa del Rey win over Numancia.

Celta went toe-to-toe with Barcelona on Thursday however, and could be tired as a result.

Real have won each of their last three league visits to the Balaidos by two goals or more, and they’re 6/5 on the -1 handicap.

Goals goals goals

Impressively, both teams have netted in each of the last seven meetings between these two. Both teams to score is 4/9.

And five of those clashes saw four or more goals scored. Over 3.5 goals is 20/23.

Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t enjoyed his usual form domestically, but with 20 goals in 12 games versus the Vigo outfit, he loves this fixture.

Ronnie is 5/2 favourite to net first and 4/7 anytime.

Celta’s Iago Aspas could offer better value though. He’s scored four times against Real, and is 15/2 to open the scoring and 21/10 at any time.
