  • Competition: Primera RFEF Promotion Playoffs, Semi Finals, 1st Leg
  • Date: Saturday, 1st June, 2024
  • Kickoff: 17:30 UTC +1 / 18:30 CEST
  • Venue: Estadio Abanca Balaídos (Vigo)

The regular season in Primera RFEF is over, and the playoffs can begin. In one of the semi-final duels, Celta's B team will face off against a former stable La Liga team, Malaga, in the first leg at Estadio Abanca Balaídos in Vigo.

Celta Vigo B are a very young team, mainly consisting of young players who patiently wait for their spot in the senior team. Celta B have been in the third tier of Spanish football for a long time. Last year, they lost in the playoffs against the team that eventually won the promotion, Eldense. This year, they finished 4th, with 65 points, but without a real possibility of reaching direct promotion as 1st-placed Deportivo La Coruna finished with 13 points more.

In just a little over a decade, Malaga went from a Champions League appearance to playing in the third tier of Spanish football after being relegated last year. This year, Los Albicelestes are looking for an instant return to La Liga 2. Just like their counterparts in the Semi-Finals, Malaga also weren't close to receiving the direct promotion after finishing 3rd in Primera RFEF Group 2 - 12 away from the first-placed Castellon.

Celta Vigo B vs Malaga pick: Both teams to score

With 67 goals scored in Primera RFEF Group 1, Celta Vigo B are the best offensive team in the league, with an average of 1.76 goals per game. The majority of their good offensive displays happened at home, where they were simply incredible, with 49 scored goals. In the latest home games, they were unstoppable and have scored three or four goals in five of the six games. So, scoring at least a goal at home is a pretty realistic scenario.

Malaga are in good form after winning back-to-back games vs Real Madrid B and Antequera with five scored goals. Even though they are not as good offensively as Celta Vigo B, they are scoring pretty regularly and have scored at least a goal in seven of the previous nine games.

On the other hand, we do not believe in either team's defenses, as Celtra Vigo B failed to keep a clean sheet in the last two and Malaga in four of the last five games.

Considering all the above, both teams to score should be the safest option for this tie.
