Clean Sheets Rare Whenever Celta and Real Clash

Celta Vigo knocked Real Madrid out of the Copa Del Rey in January.

Backing both teams to score has been a route to profit in matches between Celta and Real Madrid over the last couple of years and one is making that bet one’s headline pick in the 21st round of Spanish Primera Division games.

Celta and Real Madrid have locked horns six times since April 2015 and each of those matches has finished without a clean sheet. Already this season, Celta and Real have run into each other three times across various competitions, with the Meringues winning the reverse Spanish Primera Division fixture 2-1 before Celta triumphed over their illustrious opponents 4-3 on aggregate in the Spanish Copa del Rey thanks to a 2-1 away win and a 2-2 home draw.

Both sides have scored in 10 of Celta’s 20 Spanish Primera Division games, with the Sky Blues firing seven blanks and keeping four clean sheets. Both teams have found the back of the net in 13 of Real Madrid’s 19 Spanish Primera Division matches, with the Meringues scoring in every single game and shutting out six foes. Marathonbet is offering odds of -164  about both Celta and Real rustling the onion bag in their Spanish Primera Division clash on Sunday and that rates as the most attractive bet on the 10-match weekend program.

Valencia is below Eibar on the Spanish Primera Division ladder but, based on one’s preferred analytical tool, the Bats rate higher than the Gunners. Therefore, one is keen to back Valencia at odds of -110  with several bookmakers, including Bet365 and Betfred, on Saturday.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Valencia enjoys 7-6-5 advantage over Eibar. That suggests that the Spanish Primera Division ladder is telling lies because Valencia trails Eibar by 10 points having played one fewer games. Valencia has accrued just 10 points from its last 11 Spanish Primera Division but the Bats have been unlucky in several of their recent top-flight matches and they have not put in a real stinker in the tournament since losing 2-4 at home to Las Palmas in the first round.

Last season’s corresponding Spanish Primera Division fixture resulted in a 4-0 home victory for Valencia in which Paco Alcacer netted a hat-trick inside the first 40 minutes. Alcacer is not on Valencia’s books anymore and it may be asking too much for the Bats to beat Eibar by four clear goals again but they should be shorter odds than -110  to register their sixth Spanish Primera Division success.

Sevilla may get the better of Villarreal in the top game of the Spanish Primera Division round but the Red and Whites are under their true odds. According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Sevilla trails Villarreal 7-3-8 so one cannot get stuck into the Red and Whites even though one loves their strong home numbers.

So one’s third and final Spanish Primera Division selection is under two and a half goals in Sunday’s match between Gijon and Alaves, an option that is available at odds of -147  with Marathonbet as it chases early business.

Only five of Gijon’s 20 Spanish Primera Division games have gone under two and a half goals but that it is because the Red and Whites have conceded 39 goals. Gijon’s attack is one of the Spanish Primera Division’s least potent and, against an equally ineffective Alaves strikeforce, one wants to bet on there being very few goals in their weekend encounter. Thirteen of the 20 Spanish Primera Division matches in which Alaves has featured have gone under two and a half goals, including August’s reverse fixture that ended 0-0.
