Malaga vs Numancia
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Monday, 29 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda (Malaga).
Malaga will be hoping to rebound from a 2-0 loss away at Elche as they play host to Numancia in the last game of the Matchday No 11 on Monday evening at Estadio La Rosaleda.
Boquerones are still at the very top of the league standings in spite of the mentioned loss at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero. They look determined to make it a one-year spell on loan in the second division football this season after suffering the top flight relegation last time out.
The team led by Juan Muniz will be up against promotional hopefuls here. Rojillos have been playing hot and cold so far in the campaign, though.
Numancia failed to live up to ambitions and they sit 11th in the league ladder after 10 rounds of the competition. Much like their counterparts, Numancia will also come into this low on confidence after a tough 3-0 defeat to Las Palmas in the previous round.
Malaga vs Numancia: Head-to-head
Numancia lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into the 17th encounter with Boquerones.
The early Copa del Rey drew these two sides together last season when Numancia advanced 3-2 on aggregate (2-1 at home and 1-1 on the road).
This will be the first H2H encounter in the league competition in nine years for these two outfits.
Rojillos won six, drew one and lost one of last eight meetings with Boquerones.
Malaga vs Numancia: Prediction
Malaga are impeccable in front of the home crowd this season. They won five from five in Segunda Division at Estadio La Rosaleda and we have to see them as favourites to keep such form going against the struggling opposition such as Numancia.
Rojillos are winless in five away fixtures this term. They conceded three or more goals in three of five games in the process. This is why we’ll go for the home win and Malaga to net two or more goals in the match as main betting options here.
