Málaga vs Espanyol – La Liga: On the only match this Monday, in Spain
Counting towards La Liga’s 18th round, the local side Málaga and the visiting side Espanyol face off in the city of Málaga, at La Rosaleda stadium, on a match between the 19th and the 15th placed teams, with 13 and 17 points respectively.
This will be their first meeting this season.
The home side comes into this match making a season far from what their fans were expecting, with the team led by Michel being in a position way below the one they have finished on for the last couple of seasons, with things looking dire for Málaga, who seems to be heading towards relegation.
The team has one of the worst records of the competition on several levels, but still, they are able to avoid relegation, even because they are just 4 points away from leaving that relegation zone.
As for the visitors, they also haven’t had an easy season so far, being only on the bottom half of the league table and only having a 5-point advantage over the relegation zone.
Which means things can get tricky for them in case they aren’t able to get some points in the next few rounds in order to relieve that pressure.
The team is coming off a globally negative streak of results, only getting a win in the last month and a half.
Málaga vs Espanyol – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match between two teams that have 2 of the worst attacking records of the competition and that are looking to escape relegation as soon as possible.
I can only expect a balanced match without many defensive mistakes from both sides, which means this should be an unexciting match in terms of goals.
