Malaga Vs Villarreal: Prediction

Both sides are in search of their first league victory. This makes the game evenly poised and hard to predict. The bulk of injuries in Villarreal put them on the back-foot here and as a result Malaga are slight favourites to come out with at least a point.

At the same time, there will be no scarcity of goals on Saturday night and over 2.5 goals is a recommended bet for this game considering the maginitude of the odds at which it is priced.
