Almeria vs Malaga
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Monday, 3 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos (Almería).
Almeria and Malaga are going to wrap up the third round in the Spanish Segunda Division with a Monday evening clash.
Home side hasn’t started their campaign very well as they’ve picked up just a point from the first two rounds. Last time, they had too many troubles, but they managed to keep their heads above the water after winning a point in the latest round.
Francisco Fernandez’s side has been poor in front of the oppositions’ goal, although their defence wasn’t too bad. However, Almeria have been playing pretty fine in front of their fans as they managed to celebrate nine victories at home ground. Their goal in this season is to avoid the relegation troubles.
Malaga suffered the relegation from the Primera Liga last season as they were the worst side in the top flight. Nothing has been functioning as it should, they haven’t been too productive, while the defence allowed too many goals.
The visitors want to bounce back as quickly as possible and they’ve opened the campaign with two victories. Gustavo Blanco and the lads are doing well in the front, while their defence conceded just once.
Malaga had a very good pre-season as they suffered just one defeat and managed to tie seven matches without being defeated. During that period, they managed to keep the clean sheet.
Almeria vs Malaga: Head-to-head
Malaga tied two victories in their head to head clashes and they both came at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos. Their last three encounters have been pretty efficient as the crowd was able to see at least three goals per match.
Almeria vs Malaga: Prediction
This is not going to be an easy match for the visitors, but we believe they are capable enough of continuing their winning streak. Malaga have a number of experienced players for this level of the competition and they should get back home with a win.
Although their recent clashes have been pretty efficient, both sides have been playing fairly tight so far. They have been very hard to crack and in this one we shouldn’t expect to see more than two goals at the end of the match.
