    There are 3 fixtures to enjoy in the Spanish La Liga on Thursday the 28th of October, beginning with the meeting between Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad.

    The match will be played at the Estadio de Balaídos and the hosts begin the week in 15th place on 10 points while the visitors are top of the table on 21 points.

    Celta Vigo come into the match having recorded a good 3-0 win at Getafe on the weekend. Celta Vigo opened the scoring 10 minutes into the second half and doubled their advantage just 3 minutes later.

    Getafe were then reduced to ten men and Celta Vigo used the extra space to score a third goal before the hosts had another player dismissed in the closing stages.

    It was an important victory for Celta Vigo ahead of this match as they had lost each of their previous 2 games. The defeats came away at Elche and home against Sevilla.

    Trends show Celta Vigo have achieved just 1 win in their 6 most recent home games in La Liga. They have been struggling defensively when playing at home and have kept just a single clean sheet in their last 6 home league matches.

    Celta Vigo have also failed to score more than a single goal in each of their 5 most recent La Liga fixtures on home soil.

    Real Sociedad make the trip to the Estadio de Balaídos on the back of a 2-2 draw at defending champions, Atletico Madrid.

    Despite the point being a good return for Real Sociedad, they will feel as though they should have taken maximum points having opened a 2-0 lead just after half-time. However, Atletico Madrid fought back in the second half and scored two goals in the space of 16 minutes to claim a draw.

    That result means Real Sociedad are undefeated in their last 12 games in all competitions. They have lost only one of their 10 La Liga fixtures this season and that came at the beginning of the campaign, away to Barcelona.

    Trends show Real Sociedad are unbeaten in 20 of their last 24 games in all competitions. Recent away form in La Liga is good Real Sociedad are undefeated in their 4 away matches this season.

    They have been scoring plenty of goals and have scored 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 5 on the road in La Liga.

    Looking ahead to the team news and Celta Vigo are without defender Jose Fontán, who has a knee problem. Renato Tapia has been struggling with a calf injury and is unlikely to feature.

    Real Sociedad are hopeful the trio of Alex Sola, Diego Rico Salguero, and Nacho Monreal will be available soon but this game may come too early. Martín Zubimendi and Mikel Oyarzabal are out with a hamstring and muscle injury, respectively.

    Real Sociedad have made a great start to the season and this should be another 3 points, which will keep them at the top of the table. Celta Vigo have not been good in attack when playing at home in recent matches and Real Sociedad could keep a clean sheet on their way to victory.
