[b]Mallorca VS Celta Vigo, expect home to pick up a victory[-b]
Celta Vigo will be looking to [url=----s----soccertips.----free-soccer-tips-]soccer tips betting[-url] build on their draw against Barcelona and all but make certain of their La Liga status when they travel to Mallorca on Tuesday evening. The Celts stunned the champions on Saturday and are now eight points clear of opponents Mallorca in the final relegation spot.
Match preview
A 1-0 loss to Villarreal in their first game back aside, Celta have enjoyed a positive run of form since returning to action after the three-month hiatus. Either side of draws with Real Valladolid and Barcelona, Oscar Garcia's side thrashed Alaves 6-0 and beat Real Sociedad 1-0. The emphatic win over Alaves is the standout result from that list, though holding Barca - thanks to Iago Aspas's 88th minute equaliser - is the one that sent shockwaves through the division. Celta have spent a total of 12 matchdays in the bottom three, but eight points from the last 12 on offer has lifted them into 16th, eight points above Mallorca. A point this weekend - therefore denying their opponents three vital points - would see the Celts take a giant leap towards top-flight survival.
Team News
Marc Pedraza missed the defeat to Bilbao through injury but is pushing for inclusion here, likely in p---e of Iddrisu Baba should he win his fitness battle. Fabricio Agosto, Leonardo Koutris and Ki Sung-yeung are the visitors' other absentees, with all three in a race against time to play again this season. Celta wel---ed Okay Yokuslu back from suspension against Barcelona and he looks certain to retain his p---e in central midfield alongside Denis Suarez. Sergio Alvarez, David Junca and Fran Beltran are all struggling with various injury issues, however, while Hugo Mallo is not expected to be risked.
