Celta Vigo vs Malaga Predictions

Celta are heading for Europe but the only question remaining is whether they’ll head straight into the group stage of the Europa League or will have to negotiate two qualifying rounds. That is the difference between 5th and 6th place and they are currently 1 point shy of Athletic Bilbao in 5th, the side they lost 2-1 against last weekend at San Mames. They’d gone 8 matches without defeat prior to that though so their overall form is very good and they’ll be favourites here.

Malaga are a tough side to break down though and come into this game in the lofty heights of 8th place after they beat Levante 3-1 on Monday. They cannot qualify for Europe but could finish as the best of the sides who fail to make it into continental action. Their defence has been the foundation for their success and they have the best defensive record outside the top four. They’ve not conceded more than 1 goal in any of their last 8 matches, which is tough to do in this league.

Therefore it is hard to see any way that Celta Vigo are going to run away with this game. It is likely to be very competitive and Celta look a little short in the win market in truth given the quality of the opposition. It’s hard to see them losing and they are unbeaten in 11 home games but 6 of the last 9 have been draws with the likes of Betis and Depor getting draws at Balaidos in recent weeks so backing Malaga +1 Goal Handicap at 8/5 looks to offer real value here.
