Malaga vs Las Palmas
2017/18 Spanish LaLiga
Date: Monday, 11th September 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda.
Both Malaga and Las Palmas are looking to get their first points in the new Primera Division campaign this Monday when they are set to close the Matchday No 3 with their head to head encounter at Estadio La Rosaleda.
Boquerones are clearly limited up front with the departure of their star men Sandro Ramirez and Charles.
Jose Michel did sign a host of new players but be obviously needs some time to put the new acquisitions in bed.
We should not be surprised to see that Malaga lost both of their opening two fixtures to Eibar and Girona without scoring a single goal along the way.
The new manager Manolo Marquez had a decent run during the pre-season which sae Las Palmas winning most of their matches.
However, the team failed to deliver in opening two rounds of La Liga as they suffered a real disaster before the international break when they lost 1-5 to Atletico Madrid on the home court.
Malaga vs Las Palmas: Head to head
The teams are pretty much all leveled when it comes to head to head stats, but we must state that the home court advantage plays a big role in their meetings.
Las Palmas have never managed to leave Estadio La Rosaleda victorious, having lost five and drawn two of their seven matches with Malaga there.
Malaga vs Las Palmas: Prediction
Looking at the head to head stats, the home win seems to be a wise betting choice, set at the odds of 1/1.
However, we’ll rather back the Under 2.5 goals bet given that the host are crippled in the final third at the start of the season.
