Europa League semifinalists Celta are still looking for their first win in 7 games while Real Sociedad are looking to grab one of the final European spots in the league table.

Celta Vigo will have some regrets in their decision to focus their efforts on winning the Europa League.

That decision has seen them drop out of the La Liga top 10 and the effect of their loss to Manchester United in the semifinals has seen their morale drop which has also affected their form in the league.

They are currently 13th in the league table with 44 points, from 37 league games, 2 points behind 11th placed Malaga and 5 points ahead of 14th placed Las Palmas.

Their recent home form is not great – they have lost all 5 of their last five home matches in the league, scoring 1 goal and conceding 11.

Real Sociedad have had a good season that could finish with them in one of the European positions.

They are currently 7th in the league table with 63 points, the same points total as 6th placed Athletic Bilbao, and 1 point behind 5th placed Villarreal.

They could end up in a European spot if they win this game and one of the two teams ahead of them fail to do the same.

They have lost only one of their last 6 league games, winning 3 and drawing the other 2.

They are currently unbeaten in their last two league games which is a good run considering they played Valencia and Sevilla.
