Atletico Madrid Vs Malaga: Head-To-Head-Stats

The first leg of the same encounter earlier this season, ended in a 1-0 victory for Malaga. A late strike from Charles gave the Boquerones the last laugh.

However, in the last 10 meeting among these sides Atletico Madrid won in 4 and lost 2, with the remaining 4 ending in a draws. The year 2011 was the last time Malaga got a victory at the Calderon.

Atletico Madrid Vs Malaga: Prediction

There is a lot at stake for Atletico Madrid if they failed to get all point at home on Saturday. The Madrid team is closely followed by Real Madrid and sits on the top with same point with Barcelona.

With hope that the usual fighting and determined Atletico will show on Saturday, I forecast nothing but the maximum point for Atletico Madrid.
