THE PREDICTION

Real Sociedad’s slow return to action has seen them lose ground in the race for the Champions League places as one point from their three matches has typified their poor form. They welcome Celta who are coming off a resounding 6-0 win over Alaves as they ruthlessly made their extra man advantage count. That has given them some breathing space from the bottom three but the pressure remains on. Real Sociedad will be fired up to bounce back and get their first win under their belts since the resumption but Celta could frustrate them once again. Do not rule the visitors out from claiming a draw here.
