Real Betis’ weak defense
Real Betis will visit the Estadio de Balaidos to contain their opponent and prevent Celta Vigo from scoring, in an attempt to leave with at least one point. Would they succeed in their defensive plan? Well, it will be a difficult mission, as they are weak in defending counter attacks and stopping opponents from creating chances.

Celta Vigo were very successful in balancing between the attack intensity and solid defense in the center-back. They were able to finish with a draw (2-2) in La Liga against both Real Madrid and Barcelona. Their young striker Maxi Gomez has a great season so far bringing back a victory in Celta Vigo’s latest outing against Real Sociedad. If the defensive weakness of Real Betis gets exposed, Gomez will have some good chances to score his 10th goal for this season and maybe more.
