      Malaga vs Granada Predictions

      Malaga are propping up the table but are still only 1 point below Granada, who are just outside the drop-zone. It has been an awful 2015 for Malaga, who were riding pretty high in the league this time last year but are struggling badly for goals and results right now.

      Granada are on a relatively decent run of form with just 1 defeat in their last 6 matches but only their most recent match, a surprise 2-0 win at home to Athletic Bilbao resulted in a win so a long hard battle against the drop still looks likely for them.

      Whenever Malaga are involved, goals generally are far from plentiful. Both teams have scored in only 1 of their 12 matches so far this season and Malaga have failed to net in 10 of those games, scoring a pitiful 5 goals all season so far. There have been a total of under 2.5 goals in all but 2 of those games and in 5 of Granada’s last 7 fixtures.

      Malaga are much stronger at home than away though so Granada, who have taken just 2 points from their last 5 away matches are likely to come with a cautious approach, in the knowledge that Malaga aren’t good at breaking sides down.

      Therefore it is really hard to see there being many goals here and backing ‘Under 2.5 goals and both teams to score – NO’ at 20/21 looks like a smart move.

      This may not be the fiercest derby in Spanish football but the recent results make for interesting reading and should be considered by anyone betting on this game. This fixture has been played 8 times over the past 4 seasons after a spell of 13 years without the teams meeting each other. It is 4 wins each with the home side having won all 8 meetings between the clubs in the 21st Century.

      Despite their woeful start, Malaga have won 2 of their last 3 matches at La Rosaleda and given their strong record at home to their rivals, will fancy their chances of making it 3 wins from 4 here and you can back them to secure a 1-0 win at 9/2.
