Sociedad should start strong on Sunday...
<div><h2>Celta Vigo vs Real Sociedad</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/es/la-liga/rc-celta-de-vigo-vs-real-sociedad-3842280/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, October 27, at Balaidos</strong></a></p><p>Relegation threatened Celta Vigo face a tough challenge when they host Real Sociedad at Balaidos on Sunday. Os Celestes looked all but certain to go down last season, only for Iago Aspas to return to the team and fire them to safety with a string of sensational performances. They were expected to fare better this time around, but they have only managed five goals in nine games and they are once again teetering precariously above the drop zone. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad climbed up to fourth in the table with a 3-1 win over Real Betis on Sunday and they are full of confidence right now.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Celta Vigo look decent going forward, with Aspas leading the line and former Barcelona players Denis Suarez and Rafinha offer creativity down the wings. Yet they have really struggled to score goals this season. Os Celestes are yet to score more than one goal in a single game, and they have drawn a blank in four of their nine matches. Jorge Saenz and Joseph Aidoo keep things reasonably tight at the back, but this team lacks spark right now.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>There are no such problems for Real Sociedad, who have scored in eight of their nine games so far this season. They have banged in 16 goals in total, with Willian Jose and Mikel Oyarzabal both in fine form. Martin Odegaard has been excellent, and there is a great deal of creativity in this team. Portu and Oyarzabal are currently keeping Cristian Tello out of the team, while Mikel Merino has been playing well in the middle of the park.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Celta Vigo tend to start games in a sluggish fashion. They have scored the fewest first half goals of any team in La Liga so far this season, while Real Sociedad have managed 1.44 first-half goals per game. That is the fourth best record in the division, and they will be keen to start strong against Celta Vigo on Sunday. They lost 3-1 here at the tail end of last season, and they will be keen to exact revenge.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Real Sociedad draw no bet at half-time at 1.75 (3/4) with 888 Sport</a></strong></p></div>
