Date: on the 01st of November, 2018 (Thursday)
Match start: 16:15 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Copa del Rey – 1/16 final
After ten rounds in frames of the Primera Antonio Mohamed‘s team takes the 10th place. But the quantity of the goals (17) scored by the Celts favorably distinguishes them against the background of their rivals.
In the last four matches at home field Celta has lost points three times. If not these failures, the club from Vigo would be in the table of home results in leaders’ group. Only one goal on average for a match is missed by the Celts at home stadium. On the 19th of October Mohamed’s team has suffered the first defeat on Balaidos from Alaves (0:1).
Iago Aspas has scored already eight goals at 10 meetings. At the same time on average he has only 2.5 efforts on goal for a match. It is seen with the naked eye that the efficiency of the forward is very high.
Basques have got only one victory in five last rounds of La Liga and haven’t managed to score at all in three meetings. Dry series of the team of Garitano in the attack lasts 196 minutes.
At the weekend Real Sociedad went to play with Atletico Madrid (0:2) and could never get to a goal mouth of the rival. The last home game in the championship Real Sociedad has spent at home against Girona (0:0). Despite zero efficiency of actions in the attack, the team from San Sebastian could get on target with 8 attempts from 14 made.
At once seven football players of Real Sociedad make at least one shot for a match on average. But at the same time none of them crosses the level in 1.6 attempts. It says only that an edge of the attack of Basques can be taken by any player and this is only an advantage.
Head-to- head Celta vs Real Sociedad
At a distance of nine last matches in this pair that were the guests (3 times) who won more often – hosts (2 times). Four more matches have ended with a draw. Basques are scoring in 4 last matches in a row.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Celta vs Real Sociedad
Celta to win – 2.30
Draw – 3.30;
Real Sociedad to win – 3.15
The Copa del Rey match has its own laws but we think that none of rivals will wish to prolong a showdown for a return game. So both teams will try to win. Nevertheless, the hosts of Balaidos have more chances to fulfill these plans. We assume that they will manage to show higher efficiency in attack.
