Reason for Mallorca vs Celta Vigo Predictions
The visitors will enter the match off the back of a 1-1 draw with Villarreal in the league, while Mallorca suffered a 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad in the last-16 stage of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night. Mallorca started 2023 in impressive fashion, beating Pontevedra 2-0 in the Copa del Rey before recording a 1-0 victory over Real Valladolid in La Liga, but they have now lost their last two matches. Indeed, Javier Aguirre’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Osasuna in the league last weekend before being eliminated in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night courtesy of a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad. Mallorca now only have the league to focus on this season, and it has been a solid campaign thus far, picking up 22 points from their 17 matches to sit 10th in the table. The Pirates have won six, drawn four, and lost seven of their 17 league games this term, while they are actually one of the lowest scorers in the league, finding the back of the net on just 14 occasions. Mallorca’s success this season has been built on a strong defensive record, with only Barcelona (six), Real Betis (13), and Villarreal (13) conceding fewer times than Aguirre’s team (16). Antonio Sanchez has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every club needs such a player. Angel Rodriguez is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The Mallorca boss Javier Aguirre doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
However, the Sky Blues will enter this match in good confidence, having gone unbeaten in their last four league fixtures, including a 1-1 draw with high-flying Villarreal last time out. Celta has also beaten Elche and drawn with both Rayo Vallecano and Sevilla since their previous defeat. Like Mallorca, they only have the league to focus on, having been knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Espanyol in the early stages of the month. Carlos Carvalhal’s side has only picked up seven points from their eight away league games this term, but Mallorca has dropped points in five of their eight La Liga fixtures in front of their supporters. Gabriel Veiga enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes toward the goal, the opponent has problems. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
There are no favorites in this match, and we won’t be surprised if this clash could end in a draw.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. Football fans should enjoy this match and see at least a goal in each net.
