Malaga vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Malaga’s search for a first win of the season now extends to nine matches after the team lost 2-0 against Barcelona. Gerard Deulofeu’s second-minute goal provided a decisive advantage for Barcelona while Iniesta scored just after the break to make the game safe for the home team. Malaga’s troubles deepened with the team losing 2-1 against lower league Numancia in the Copa del Rey action. Celta de Vigo’s four-game unbeaten run concluded with a 1-0 home defeat against Atletico Madrid. Kevin Gameiro scored from a 28th minute corner to secure this victory. Juan Carlos Unzue’s team returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win over Eibar in the Copa del Rey.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Malaga and Celta de Vigo have shared the spoils in recent years with three wins apiece in the last six meetings. After a disappointing start to the season, Celta de Vigo have improved substantially and have been able to win the last three away games in all competitions. Malaga have been extremely poor and it is difficult to back Michel’s team even if they are playing at home. I would go with a win for Celta de Vigo. The last three away games in all competitions has seen Celta de Vigo score more than 1.5 goals. Malaga have conceded more than 1.5 goals in four out of the last five league matches at the La Rosaleda. I would bet on Celta de Vigo to score over 1.5 goals.

Celta de Vigo win – 11/8

Celta de Vigo to score over 1.5 goals – 6/5

Malaga saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Celta Vigo saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Malaga Preview

Malaga may not hold any longer with manager Michel Gonzalez, as the team continues to go from one bad result to the other with recovery not in sight. Malaga have managed just a solitary points from the first nine matches. The club are now in danger of being cut adrift from the rest of the teams fighting against relegation. Malaga are already six points behind Eibar, who sit in the 17th position. The struggles for the club have primarily been in offence with the team only managing four league goals. Diego Rolan is the leading scorer at the club with two goals.

Malaga Team News

Zdravko Kuzmanovic (calf), Diego Rolan (hamstring), Miguel Torres (thigh), and Diego Gonzalez Polanco (knee) are the players unavailable for Malaga.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo were left disappointed with the home defeat against Atletico Madrid, as it robs the team of the opportunity to get into the top half of the table and close the gap on the top six places. Celta de Vigo have been picking up pace in recent weeks, as the players start to be get used to manager Unzue’s ideas. The inability to score against Atletico Madrid also marked the first time Celta de Vigo have not found the back of the net this season. A record of 18 goals in nine games displays the attacking potential of the team. Maxi Gomez remains the leading scorer with five for the season.

Celta Vigo Team News

Ruben Blanco (hip), Jozabed (back), and Facundo Sebastian Roncaglia (thigh) are the players unavailable for Celta de Vigo.
