Málaga vs Levante – La Liga: Trying to react to leave the relegation zone…
Málaga hosts Levante who is keeping some distance to that same zone. The ball starts rolling at 18:00 (London time) at the La Rosaleda stadium in Málaga.
Málaga’s campaign this season is disappointing. After 13 rounds, the team is really turning into a strong contender for the relegation fight.
On 2017/2018’s La Liga, Málaga is positioned in 18th place with only 7 points conquered, having scored 11 goals and conceded 28 up until this point. They are already 5 points behind the first team outside the relegation zone.
On the last round, Málaga has faced Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu, where they ended up losing 3-2, but they gave a lot of work to the Merengues.
So far, Levante is fulfilling their initial objective which is to stay away from the relegation zone, since they just returned to this elite division this season.
The 14th place is the one they occupy in 2017/2018’s La Liga after 13 rounds.
So far they have 15 points conquered, while having 14 goals scored and 20 goals conceded and an 8-point advantage over the relegation zone.
Their last result is discouraging since they were battered 5-0 by Atlético de Madrid at home.
Málaga vs Levante – Betting Tip and Prediction:
In reality, this is direct duel between two relegation candidates, considering what they’ve shown in La Liga. Málaga, every round that goes by, gets deeper and deeper on this uncomfortable situation.
They are a team that is playing a football adequate to their position in the league, with their attack not working well anymore. However, their biggest problem is on the defensive system.
They have conceded 28 goals in 13 matches. Levante are still comfortable for now, but they need to improve their football in order to keep away from the lower part of the league table.
I think that this match will be the key point for Málaga to try and react, in order to leave the relegation zone, while Levante will try to win to recover after being battered on the last round and stay away from danger.
This way, I expect an open match, with good possibilities of both teams scoring.
