Las Palmas vs Málaga – La Liga: On the only match of this Monday of matches in Spain, counting towards La Liga’s 22nd round.
The local side Las Palmas and the visiting side Málaga face off at the Islas Canarias, on the Gran Canaria Stadium,
on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season, with their first encounter having finished on a 3-1 win for Málaga, at home.
The home side is in penultimate place of the league table, with 14 points, while the visiting side is in last place with 13 points conquered.
The home side is making a season well below what they’ve made in previous seasons with Quique Sétieri, not being the team that played attacking and exciting football they were on the last couple of seasons,
with the gamble on Paco Averastan proving to be misplace and contributing heavily towards a new stage for the team from the Islas Canarias, who now has to settle for fighting to avoid relegation.
The team has one of the worst defensive records of the competition, only better than Deportivo’s, conceding, on average, more than 2 goals per match.
They are coming off a negative streak of results, but they have won against Valencia 2 rounds ago.
As for Málaga, they are the main contender for relegation since the start of the season, staying in last place and seeing the safety spots further and further away, while also being the team that was able to score the least number of goals on this competition.
They are coming off a slightly less negative streak, with 2 draws on the last 2 rounds.
Las Palmas vs Málaga – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Las Palmas team led by a manager with a very characteristic style, almost with a “total football” mentality,
we can expect matches with a lot of goals usually, something that I believe will also happen here and namely during the 1st half.
