THE PREDICTION

Celta were on the receiving end of an incredibly harsh 5-1 result in Mallorca on Tuesday as despite having the same attempts on goal and much more possession, everything went against them. That loss has plunged them back into danger with Mallorca closing the gap so the pressure is on here. Betis have a bit more breathing space and it would take something remarkable for them to go down now so that may see Celta have the edge in urgency. Barring the shock loss in the Balearic Islands, Celta’s form is reasonable and they should bounce back here and pick up a vital win.
