Malaga vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga 2016/17
Date: Monday, 20 September 2016
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda, Malaga.

Malaga certainly look like team short of ideas as they suffered another defeat on the weekend. This time they were beaten 1-0 by a brilliant Las Palmas, which left the Andalusia based outfit without a win after 4 matchdays in the 2016/17 Spanish League season. The pressure is mounting on Juande Ramos as his team lie ever closer to the relegation zone. The squad definitely have some quality players, but the results must start to improve.

Eibar are a team that one should expect to occupy the bottom half of the La Liga table. But they have made an excellent start to the new season and are currently staying just below the top 6 of in the standings. They held Sevilla to a 1-1 draw on the weekend, that too despite going down to 9 men. The Los Armeros are unbeaten in the last three with wins against Valencia and Granada and they will high on confidence as they prepare to visit La Rosaleda for Tuesday’s fixture.

Malaga vs Eibar: Prediction

Malaga will be desperate for a win when they face Eibar on Tuesday’s La Liga clash. They lost 2 and drawn 2 from their opening 4 matches and it is time to end their bad run of results. Eibar must be a perfect opponent to get back to winning ways as they have a strong head-to-head record with 4 wins from 5 home games.

Eibar will be without the services of their two key players – defender Dani Garcia and goal-keeper Yoel, both got send off in the 1-1 draw against Sevilla. Despite the good run of results, they also give away plenty of scoring chances to their opponents. It is a matter of time that this good run comes to end. Moreover, they are exceptionally poor in away games as they lost 9 of their last 11 La Liga games on the road. All these stats are pointing towards a home win on Tuesday night.

Malaga haven’t kept a clean sheet at home in the last 7 league matches, while Eibar concedes at an average of 2.5 goals in their last 12 away games. So an over 2.5 goals is a worth the risk for this match, especially when it is offered at the odds of 2.15.

Malaga vs Eibar: Bet Tips

Malaga to win at 1.70 (7/10)
Over 2.5 goals at 2.15 (23/20).
