Mallorca vs Celta: prediction for the La Liga fixture

Mallorca got eliminated from Copa del Rey this week, but they have a chance to redeem themselves in a La Liga game against Celta on January 20. We offer our betting tips for the upcoming battle.

Match announcement

Mallorca

Mallorca are right between the Top-4 and the relegation zone and team may go either way. Start of the current season became the best one for the team since 2010/11 La Liga campaign. 

Club boss, Javier Aguirre, was satisfied with team's performance on away game against Osasuna, despite a 0:1 defeat. After 17 matches the islanders have six victories and four draws, delivering 22 points and a 10th position in the standings. Team scored only 14 goals so far in the season, allowing less than one goal per game. Hosts will try to get a victory over the bottom half team, because they will have tough matches against Villarreal and Real Madrid up ahead. 

Jones and Valjent will miss the upcoming game. 

Celta Vigo

Celta also managed to avoid defeats in four latest matches. But it didn't help the visitors to leave the danger zone - they are still just two points ahead of the relegation zone. After the arrival of new head coach, Vigo side improved the defensive game. 

In recent matches team conceded just two goals. Under Eduardo Coudet, team used to concede two goals per game. 35-year old Iago Aspas is still team's main attacking option, but he admits that «retirement is getting closer». Aspas is scoring nearly 40% of Celta's goals for a second consecutive season. However, team was unable to score more than two goals in any of 13 latest La Liga matches. 

Villar and Tapia are currently on team's injuried list.
