Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo Prediction and Betting Preview, 16 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-2
Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo PredictionReal Madrid have easily been the best side in the Spanish La Liga this season having steamrolled their way to the summit of the standings. Despite a slow start to the season, Zinedine Zidane has since mustered a resurgence to shoot his side right to the business end of the table.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 24
Kick-off:
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid)
For all their exploits so far, they have defending champions Barcelona breathing heavily down their neck in second place. Just three points clear of the Blaugrana, Real Madrid cannot avoid any slip-ups at this stage of the campaign.

With Real Madrid and Barcelona involved in a heated battle at the top of the standings, you get the feeling that this season’s La Liga title race will go right down to the wire. Both sides need to thread with caution as they look to achieve league success.

With a game against relegation-threatened Celta Vigo on the cards, the home side will already be licking their lips at the prospect of sweeping this weak outfit aside. Los Blancos should not even have to break a sweat to clinch maximum points against this foe.

Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo Team News

While Barca have had plenty of problems in recent months, Madrid have been ticking along very nicely indeed and are currently the team at the top of La Liga after 23 matches of the 2019-20 campaign.

Indeed, Zinedine Zidane 's side have lost just once in the league this term, picking up 15 wins in the process to sit three points clear at the summit. They have the best defensive record in Spain's top flight this season with just 14 conceded and will fancy their chances of picking up another victory on Sunday night.

Los Blancos were disappointingly knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Real Sociedad on February 6 but returned to winning ways in the league last weekend with an emphatic 4-1 success at Osasuna.

Zidane's team, who will be in Champions League last-16 action against English champions Manchester City later this month, have now won their last five in Spain's top flight, including a vital 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in their last league fixture at the Bernabeu.

Barca will have the chance to move level on points with their Clasico rivals when they face Getafe on Saturday afternoon, but it would be a surprise if the capital giants did not put another three points on the board against a Celta side that are currently struggling just outside the bottom three.

Celta are competing in their eighth straight season at this level of football, and they actually finished ninth, eighth and sixth between 2014 and 2016 during a successful period for the club.

Two 13th-place finishes were followed by 17th last season, though, and it does appear that the club will face another battle over the next few months to stay in the division.

There are only two points between Espanyol in 20th and 17th-placed Celta, and it would certainly not be a surprise if Oscar Garcia 's side ended this weekend in the relegation zone.

The Sky Blues actually recorded a morale-boosting victory over Sevilla last weekend but have lost three of their last four away matches in La Liga, while they are without a league success at the Bernabeu since November 2006, which is an indication of the size of their task in this match.

Injured or Suspended Players

Real Madrid: Marco Asensio, James Rodriguez, Mariano Diaz and Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid vs Celta Predictions

It is difficult to make a case for Celta Viga on Sunday night. The Sky Blues picked up a brilliant home win over Sevilla last time out but this is a completely different prospect; we are not expecting lots of goals but fancy Madrid to collect all three points in fairly routine fashion.
