Having played their first match of the year in the city of Soria on Thursday evening in the Copa Del Rey against Numancia, Real Madrid are on the road once more this weekend for their first league encounter in 2018.
Los Blancos visit the Estadio Balaidos, traditionally thought of as an extremely tough place to visit, yet Madrid have been comfortable winners there in each of their last three visits.
Zinedine Zidane's men are available at 8/15 (1.53) with dabblebet to claim a win in the stadium where last season they triumphed 4-1 and the two previous campaigns saw them record victories by 3-1 and 4-2 scorelines respectively.
Celta, meanwhile, are priced at 9/2 (5.50) and the Galicians, who are usually strong at home, have only managed three wins in eight league games in front of their own fans this season. The draw can be backed at 15/4 (4.75).

Dani Carvajal is suspended after his sending off in the Clasico before Christmas, while Gareth Bale could be in line to start his first league match since the 20th September.
Celta firing in front of goal
Juan Carlos Unzue's side have scored as many goals as Real Madrid this season in La Liga, failing to find the back of the net in only two of their 17 league matches.
Los Blancos know there can be no more slip ups given the ever-widening gap to Barcelona at the top of the table, and that should see the visitors take the game to Celta - leading to an open encounter.
Tips and predictions
Both teams to score is offered at 4/9 (1.44) and has paid out in each of the each of the last five league meetings between these sides, but as Real Madrid have won all five of those games, backing a victory for the champions and both teams to score at 7/5 (2.40) makes perfect sense.
