Celta Vigo has been playing well in La Liga this season, hovering within the top-10 teams. They’re currently on a five game winning-streak, having beaten Valencia in the Copa del Rey Round of 16 before putting down both Malaga and Alaves in La Liga. Granted, none of those teams are on the level as Los Blancos, and when Celta challenged Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla in Dec. 2016 fixtures, they came away with Ls.
Still, this doesn’t mean they’re going to give up. “We imagine that we can beat any team,” manager Eduardo Berizzo, 47, said ahead of this game, according to Marca. “When we face Real Madrid it will not be an exception. “It will be important to get a good result at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Then we play at home in the return leg, so the first leg is crucial.”
Celticos did pull of some amazing upsets in 2016, dumping Athletic Bilbao in the prior year’s quarterfinals. They also defeated Barcelona earlier in La Liga season, so there’s at least a chance that Iago Aspas, 29, John Guidetti, 24, and the rest of the crew can do some magic in this game.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Real will reignite their winning streak? Or do you think Celta will claim the upset with a surprising victory?
