Malaga vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Monday, 16th January 2017
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda, Malaga.

Malaga and Real Sociedad will be hoping to bounce back after disappointing results at the start of the New Year. The teams are set to close the 18th round of LaLiga on Monday evening at La Rosaleda. The home team is definitely in greater troubles being winless in last six matches in all competitions, having lost four of them. The Sunday’s defeat at Balaidos was the third in a row for Marcelo Romero and his men who generally did not show anything against Celta Vigo losing with ease by two goals difference.

Real Sociedad, on the other hand, looked pretty good in December when the positive run led them to the 6th position in the standings. They entered the New Year in an impressive way as well, outscoring Villarreal with 3 – 1 at Anoeta. However, the last weekend showed how vulnerable their defensive line actually is as they allowed as many as four goals against Sevilla.

Real Sociedad have been better in H2H clashes historically, but they have not win a single out of last four matches with Malaga. Interesting to note is the fact that most of the previous head to head encounters ended without many goals, five of the last six offering the Under 2.5 option.
