Celta de Vigo vs Málaga – La Liga: This Sunday, Celta de Vigo hosts Málaga on La Liga’s 29th round
Maybe these are Celta’s last chances to get closer to the European qualification zone on this competition. On their last 5 matches, they have only won twice and lost the other 3.
It is precisely this inconsistency that has been stopping the team from reaching at least the Europa League. Celta currently occupies the 10th place with 38 points conquered.
Right now, the first team that would advance onto the Europa League would be Villarreal with 44 points.
In case they win here, Celta will reach 41 points and would only stay 3 points behind their rivals. Playing at home, the team has 6 victories, 4 draws and 3 losses, with 22 goals scored and 17 goals conceded so far.

Málaga is sunk in last place of the La Liga’s table with only 13 points conquered after 28 rounds, which means, out of 84 possible points.
They come into this match with 7 consecutive losses but, to make matters worse, they haven’t won since December on this competition.
Imagining that a team with a campaign like this will from now on have a Barcelona-like win-rate to recover from an 11-points disadvantage to the first team outside the relegation zone is a complete illusion.
Celta de Vigo vs Málaga – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Málaga is virtually relegated. Celta de Vigo has already featured in some big matches on this edition of the tournament.
They are a team with quality and, playing at home, against such a fragile opponent and still having chances to get closer to the European spots, they shouldn’t let this opportunity slip away.
