Celta Vigo will travel to the Balearic Islands as they are set to compete against Mallorca at the Visit Mallorca Estadi this Friday. Read our Preview, Predictions, and Betting Tips with Analysis here.

Newly promoted Mallorca have been taking points on a consistent basis and are in no threat of relegation currently.

After a top half finish in the preceding season, Celta Vigo has not been able to deliver with performances worthy of a similar finish this time around.

Mallorca vs Celta Vigo Head-to-head

  • The Sky Blues have not gotten the better of this opponent in 6 previous meetings.
  • Both teams have scored in 4 of the last 6 encounters.
  • 3 or more goals were scored in 4 of those 6 fixtures.
  • The visitors’ previous 4 trips to this venue have yielded a win.

Analysis

The Pirates did have a difficult time settling to things in the Spanish Premier division. As they had picked just a couple of wins until the end of September.

They have since lost just once and will go into the fixture this Friday with a 3 match unbeaten run. They occupy the 12th position in La Liga and are ahead of this foe by 3 points.

Celta on other hand did not have the best of starts to the season either as they had picked just 1 point in the opening 5 league fixtures. 

A string of draws separated by a few scattered losses has put them 14th in the league table. They are 4 points clear of the drop zone.

Mallorca vs Celta Vigo Prediction

The hosts are undefeated in their previous 4 home games. However, they have managed a win just once in those fixtures. 

The visiting side on the other hand is undefeated in 4 away games. Further, they have lost just twice on the road this season. Considering the above they should take at least a point from the fixture.

The away side has scored just one first half goal in their last 5 league games away from home. While the hosts have failed to score in the first half in 5 of their last 6 fixtures. With these in mind, I have backed a goalless first half.
