Celta have comfortably outplayed Valencia (4:1) a few days ago so the Galician side can entirely focus on this La Liga match against Malaga. This is going to be the first game at Balaidos this year and it looks like an open clash with goals can be expected, especially because hosts have important defender Roncaglia suspended. Orellana is a doubt, the Chilean player has resumed trainings with the group so perhaps he might be involved. Malaga have poor defence this season. Experienced centre-back Weligton is injured, whereas other players who play on that position, Villanueva or Llorente, are young, inexperienced and make errors. After the cup defeat to Cordoba (3:4), coach Juande Ramos resigned and now Marcelo Romero is in charge of this team, he's a former assistant coach. Malaga have brought in talented winger/striker Penaranda a few days ago from Watford on loan and generally I believe that there's a chance to see a few goals in this game.
