Celta Vigo needs all three points

Celta Vigo is in-need of a win against RCD Mallorca for a chance to remain on the race for top seven in the league. In the league table, these two teams are not far from each other as they are just separated by two points and two places. Celta is currently at the 11th of the league table with 36 points. A win would inch Celta closer to their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League, the highest they can attain. Mallorca on the other hand is at the 13th with 34 points across their name. They are desperate for points so they could avoid going into the relegation zone. This meeting will be on April 18, 2023, at 11:00 PM (GMT+8), with Celta playing as hosts.

These two teams only shared 23 matches in their history across all competitions. From those 23 matches, these two teams are on an even footing, winning nine games each. The remaining five matches on the other hand all remain in draw. However, it seems like luck is not on the side of the hosts, winning only once in their last nine matches against the visitors. The visitors on the other hand are in trouble coming into this game. Although they are seven points away from the relegation zone, they are still candidates for relegation. With that, the visitors are hungry for more wins as possible.

Celta is currently at the 11th of the league table and have struggled during the some parts of this season. They are a team who is still aiming to qualify for the top seven of the contest, for a Europa League chance. However, if they want to reach their aim, they need to be at their best in this match. They cannot afford a draw or worse, loss, as they need the three points from a win. On their last match, they were held in a 2-2 draw by Sevilla, and are now looking to prove a point here. Fortunately for them, they have been fairly impressive in their recent matches. Their good momentum is just in-time for their intent to finish at the top-half of the league table. Aspas is expected to step-up for Celta in this match, and make his mark in this match.

Goncalo Pacienca is expected to be restored back for Celta, as well as Luca de la Torre. Gabri Veiga on the other hand will return in this match, after serving his one-game ban due to five yellow cards.

Mallorca on the other hand is at the 13th of the league table with 34 points across their names. This squad is fighting for survival, as they are one of the candidates to drop at the relegation zone. Fortunately for them, they are still with seven point lead, which widen their gap from the relegation zone. However, they have issues to address if they want to retain their spot or at least improve their standings. They need to find ways to be consistent in this match, as they have been plagued with inconsistencies. Just like their hosts, they were also from a 3-3 draw on their last match. With that, they are looking to take it up a notch in this game. They can pack a punch in this match, as they found ways to trouble their opponents.

Due to his 10th yellow card this season, Jaume Costa is expected to miss for Mallorca due to his suspension. Giovanni Gonzalez on the other hand is expected to be back in this game. Meanwhile, Ludwig Augustinsson cannot play yet due to his injury, while Iddrisu Baba is also back here.
