Malaga come into this game knowing that a good showing could see them topple Celta Vigo.

Malaga are currently on form – they have won their last 3 league matches in a row, a set of performances that has helped them climb up the league table.

They are currently ranked 12th with 42 points from 35 league games, and they have won 5 of their last 10 games.

Their home form is solid – they have won their last 3 home games, scoring at least 2 goals in each of those matches.

Celta Vigo return to league action after their Europa League clash with Manchester United.

They have since prioritized the European competition over the league.

They are currently 11th in the league table with 44 points from 34 matches.

They have just 2 points more than their host, and have played a game less.

They have won 2 of their last 6 away matches losing 3 and drawing the other game but they have no wins in their last 2 away games in all competitions.

They will try their best in this game while fielding their second eleven, to keep their top players fresh for the Europa League return leg.

Bookmakers recognise that Celta will most likely rest players for their 2nd leg Europa League match against Manchester United and for that reason, Malaga are heavy odds-on favourites (1.44).
