Malaga vs Sevilla
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 28 February 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK
Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda (Malaga).
Sevilla will be desperate to fix the horrendous impression they left at the weekend falling 2-5 at home to Atletico Madrid. The Anchovies have shown a dreadful defensive performance just after a decent showing in the Champions League against Manchester United, but they’ll have a nice opportunity to rebound in mid-week’s round when they travel to Estadio La Rosaleda to tackle the rock-bottomed Malaga side.
The Anchovies are just mot pulling up any trees at the moment as the fourth consecutive loss in La Liga sees them sit at the very foot of the league standings being as many as seven points shy of safety. Malaga actually got off to a decent start on Sunday at San Mames, but they’ve allowed Athletic Bilbao to make a comeback later.
The hosts still have theoretical chances of saving the elite class status come May, but they’ll need a serious turnaround in form to make it count and get at least a glimmer of hope. Jose Gonzalez and his men might be in position to take advantage of momentum here and see off Sevilla who’ll come into the game off the back of conceding five goals at home on Sunday.
Malaga vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Los Rojiblancos only lead the head to head stats by a single win coming into their 36th meeting with Malaga.
Teams have seven wins each in 17 H2H tis at Estadio La Rosaleda.
Malaga have picked up four points in last two home outings with Sevilla who have won this term’s clash at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan 2-0 back in late-September.
Malaga vs Sevilla: Prediction
Malaga are struggling badly for goals of late, but we must admit that they’ve had a super challenging schedule in the recent matches at Estadio La Rosaleda.
Given the Anchovies have generally tended to keep things tight at the back at home in spite of the tough schedule and that latest trips to La Rosaleda did not go very well for Sevilla, we do find the value in backing the home win or draw double chance at the odds of 1.85.
