Celta vs Malaga Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview

Another interesting clash awaits the football fans as Celta Vigo will host Malaga. This is a game of round 28 between a mid-placed side and one of the worst teams in the league.

Celta Vigo hold the number ten slot in La Liga with thirty-eight points from eleven wins, five draws, and twelve losses. Out of the previous five league games, they have two wins and three losses, one of which occurred in the last round. They faced Atletico Madrid and were defeated by the score of 3-0. Griezmann opened the goal scoring sheet in the late minutes of the first half, and in the second Vitolo and Correa managed to add a goal each and with them secure all three points for the team from Madrid.

When it comes to the previous meetings between these two sides, the point distribution has been somewhat equal. Out of the previous five games that they’ve played, Malaga have won three and Celta Vigo have won two. At their home ground, Celta have had better results as they have won three of the previous five games against Malaga there. It is worth noting that those three wins are from the three most recent clashes. Before that, they have lost three games in a row, which just goes to show how much they have improved in the recent seasons.
