Celta Vigo vs Mallorca betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds


Iago Aspas

Just one of the last nine meetings have produced an away win with Mallorca winning 3-0 at Balaídos in 2007. In more recent times, Mallorca have won just three of their last 36 La Liga away games.

Celta de Vigo to win and both teams to score NO is 13/8.

Iago Aspas is 4/1 to break the deadlock and 7/5 to score anytime.

Match preview

Can Mallorca climb away from danger?

Los Bermellones come into this one having lost three in a row, including to Valencia last weekend and then Real Sociedad on Wednesday, both at home.

Before this, Luis García Plaza's side had won back-t0-back games, against Cádiz and Athletic Club, but have been unable to build on this.

So, Mallorca remain 16th, just five points clear of Cádiz and Alavés in the relegation zone.

Celta de Vigo meanwhile are enjoying the security that comes with being mid-table.

O Celtiña though were also beaten in this last outing, going down 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano to Atlético Madrid last Saturday night.

Nevertheless, before this, they were unbeaten in five and had accumulated 16 points from the last 27 available, only losing to La Real.

Thus, Eduardo Coudet's men sit tenth, 11 points clear of danger but ten points below the potential European positions.

Will Célticos be too strong at Balaídos?

Having had over a week to prepare, Eduardo Coudet's team should be fresher than their opposition.

In recent weeks, Celta have settled on a 4-1-3-2 shape which allows both Santi Mina and Iago Aspas to start up front.

The down side is that this asks a lot of Denis Suárez and Fran Beltrán in central midfield.

Although this should be less of a problem against Mallorca compared to Atlético last weekend.

If more defensive solidity is needed, Renato Tapia could come in.

In contrast, it's quick turnaround for Luis García Plaza's men who gave Real Sociedad a good game on Wednesday.

Vedat Muriqi made an instant impact after arriving on loan from Lazio but the goals have dried up a bit for him in recent weeks.

He'll be hoping for more supply from attacking players such as Takefusa Kubo, Dani Rodríguez and Ángel who could return to the XI.
