Both teams are stuck in a rut at the moment, and would dearly love more than anything for the three points. However, the fact that Celta Vigo are comparatively better in recent form, will have a say in determining the outcome of the game, and so will their home advantage.

Celta Vigo vs Mallorca Prediction

Celta Vigo had several factors going against them the last match-day, and still managed to put on a fight against Leganes. The former were on the road, and were one player short on the pitch due to a red card.

Vigo had been trailing 3-0 around the 55th minute, but showed the resilience to hit two goals back, and almost secured a draw. But despite their efforts, the game ended 3-2 in favor of the home team.

The same game week, Mallorca had taken a trip to the Nou Camp, and as expected, returned with a huge loss. Powered by a Lionel-Messi hattrick, the guests were subjected to a 5-2 defeat.

This Sunday, in regards to the result, consider how Celta compares in recent form to their counterparts. At home, Vigo were unbeaten in five of their last eight appearances, and remained so in 12 of their previous 18.

On the other hand, Mallorca lost four of their previous five overall fixtures, and were winless in six of their prior seven. On the road, they are on an eight-match losing streak, and had a total of one win from their preceding 14 trips away from home.

In addition, keep note that Celta kept clean sheets in two of their last four home fixtures, while their opposite number conceded twice or more in seven of their previous eight away games.

Adding on, Celta are in fact a well-accustomed team in the La Liga, and have the home advantage, whereas on top of the away handicap, the visitors lack experience in the top division (Mallorca were promoted to the top flight just the previous summer).

Considering these observations, Celta emerges as the favorite to post the three points this match-day in Spain.
