The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action this week as Real Sociedad take on Celta Vigo at the Anoeta Stadium on Thursday. Both teams have had their moments this season and will want to win this game.

Real Sociedad are in seventh place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have not been at their best in recent weeks. La Real suffered a 2-1 defeat against Sevilla over the weekend and will want to return to winning ways in this match.

Celta Vigo, on the other hand, find themselves in 10th place in the league table and have been inconsistent this season. The Galicians were held to a 0-0 stalemate by Cadiz in their previous game and have a point to prove this week.


Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo Head-to-Head

Real Sociedad have a good record against Celta Vigo and have won nine games out of a total of 20 matches played between the two teams. Celta Vigo have managed only six victories against Real Sociedad and will need to be at their best in this game.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in November last year and ended in a 4-1 victory for Real Sociedad. Celta Vigo committed a series of defensive errors on the day and will need to improve this week.
