      Espanyol vs Malaga Predictions

      Neither side will be thrilled with how the season is going although Espanyol will certainly be the more content. That said they have picked up just 1 point from their last 3 matches and have failed to beat struggling Sporting Gijon and Granada in their last two home games.

      If their home form begins to desert them then you would start to worry for Espanyol but the visit of Malaga presents them with the ideal opportunity to get back on track.

      Malaga are just 1 point outside the relegation zone and have been really poor for almost the entire calendar year after struggling badly also in the Second half of last season. Their main problem is their inability to score goals. They have the worst goalscoring record in the league with just 5 goals netted in 11 matches so far.

      All of those 5 goals have come at home and you have to go back 5 months for their last away goal in La Liga. That alone would be a major concern for them going into this match and surely backing ‘No’ in the Both Teams to Score market is the way to go here at 4/5.

      Malaga have lost 10 of their last 12 away league matches and have lost their last two Primera Division matches 1-0, both against newly promoted clubs in the form of Sporting Gijon and Real Betis.

      Their inability to get anything going in the final third is a major worry and therefore you have to fancy the home side to nick this and they look good value for a 1-0 win at 6/1.
