Tough test for Malaga
Malaga come into this away game at Cartagena knowing that a win is needed to keep their late playoff push on track. The side currently sit eight points off the playoffs but with 10 points from their last possible 15, they know they have the potential to reach the top six if they maintain their form.
The side have struggled at times this season with consistency still being an issue for the side but a turnaround in the past couple of weeks seems to have put a bad run of results behind them.
Cartagena have not enjoyed this season at all with the club sitting in 20th place and facing the real threat of relegation. They’ve won just twice in their last 16 matches and are just one point ahea of bottom club, Sabadell. The side have conceded 42 times this season, an average of 1.4 goals per game and more than any other club in Segunda Liga.
We think this match will be a close one despite the differing fortunes of the clubs but we think Malaga will do just enough to claim the three points. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Cartagena on the scoresheet however and we’re forecasting a 2-1 victory for the visitors.
