Real Madrid vs Málaga – La Liga: The “Merengues” host Málaga this Saturday night at the Santiago Bernabéu…
In another match of La Liga’s 13th round.
Real Madrid, as we know, is having a much weaker season than what they have usually done in recent years, currently sitting in 3rd place of La Liga with 24 points gained, 10 behind leaders Barcelona.
Up until this point, they have 7 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, and they have scored 22 goals and conceded 9, which results on an average of 2.6 goals per matches (which is quite low for a club like Real Madrid).
On the last Champions League match, the team from the capital travelled to Cyprus and trounced APOEL 6-0.
However, that goal scoring prowess hasn’t appeared in the league, competition where Ronaldo and Benzema have only scored 1 goal each.
Málaga was in last place of La Liga until very recently, rising to 18th place with 7 points after beating Deportivo 3-2.
Up until this point, they have 2 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses, and if their global performance is already pretty negative, what’s to say about the results they got away from home, not having a single point conquered in that condition.
Besides that, the team from Andalucía didn’t score a single goal on their matches away from La Rosaleda.
Real Madrid vs Málaga – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Spanish La Liga, unlike the Premier League, won’t have matches midweek, but Real Madrid had a lot of players on international duties during the international break, still has some injured players and played a Champions League match last Tuesday.
If that wasn’t enough, we haven’t had a league match with more than 4 goals where Real Madrid was involved this season.
On that context, and considering the inefficiency that Málaga has been showing away from home, I expect a relaxed win from the team of the capital, without any big numbers on the score line.
