In their second La Liga game, Real Madrid is the favorite to defeat Celta Vigo and get a victory.
Real Madrid started off their La Liga championship defense with a victory over Almeria, and they’ll want to do the same against Celta Vigo on Saturday.
The league winners were stunned by Largie Ramazani’s sixth-minute goal in the season opener, but goals from Lucas Vasquez and David Alaba in the second half made sure there were no surprises on the opening day of La Liga 2022–23.
In their opening home match of the year, Celta Vigo were beaten to a 2-2 draw by Espanyol, with Joselu’s late penalty forcing the hosts to accept a point.
