Competition: La Liga

Market: Celta Vigo win

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Smelling the chance to extend on their unbeaten La Liga run on Monday night, Celta Vigo will welcome a struggling Mallorca to Balaidos.

Starting with the hosts, mounting a stunning last-gasp comeback away at Sevilla as they eventually snatched a 2-2 draw last week, Celta Vigo have continued to impress many on either side of March’s international break. Heading into the fortnight interval with a stellar 3-1 romp away at relegation scrappers Espanyol, Carlos Carvalhal’s men now have their sights firmly set on clinching a top-half finish in 2023. Suffering just a single defeat in any of their previous 10 straight domestic appearances, the former Sheffield Wednesday boss should be smelling the chance for his side to make another La Liga statement here. With their extended purple patch highlighted by a 3-0 victory against Rayo Vallecano on March 11th, Celta Vigo have certainly found a real clinical edge in the final third. It should be noted, Monday’s hosts have notched 10 strikes in just their last four outings.

As for the visitors, last seen having to settle for what was a thrilling 3-3 draw away at relegation scrappers Real Valladolid, Mallorca find themselves in the midst of an extended rut. Almost sat in La Liga limbo, Javier Aguirre’s side have now failed to win any of their last six straight top-flight appearances – a run that stems all the way back to February 18th. With their nightmare rut highlighted by a 2-1 defeat against Espanyol, the one-time Zaragoza boss has will have a major headache over his squad’s rather glaring struggles on the road. In fact, on what has become a remarkable blip, Mallorca have collected just one point from any of their previous seven La Liga contests outside of Palma. Suffering an action-packed 4-3 loss when they made the trip to Balaidos last season, a similar home win can be found at generous odds here.

Bet: Celta Vigo 5/6 to beat Mallorca in Monday’s La Liga showdown @ 888sport
