Malaga vs Villarreal: Preview and Predictions

Malaga vs Villarreal
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 1 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda (Malaga).

Villarreal have managed to complete a huge comeback against the second-placed Atletico Madrid before the international break and they’ll have a great opportunity to back up such win on Sunday evening when they are to come face to face with the rock-bottomed Malaga side.

It was the Turkish substitute Enes Unal who has inspired the mentioned comeback against the Mattressers netting two goals within eight minutes to keep theoretical hops of making the top four at the end of the season for Villarreal. The Yellow Submarine are as many as 12 points shy of Valencia in fourth, but Javi Calleja’s men have full right to dream big, particularly after the mentioned victory in the previous round.

The Anchovies, on the other side, are just not pulling up any trees. They are one foot into the second tier of the Spanish football being as many as 13 points adrift of the safe zone, a position held by Levante who have won two on the bounce in La Liga. The team led by Jose Gonzalez have finally managed to avoid a defeat last time out when they held Celta Vigo to a goalless draw away at Estadio de Balaidos. Nonetheless, they could not find the back of the net in fourth subsequent league game.

Malaga vs Villarreal: Head-to-head

Villarreal have been slightly more successful over the course of history winning 12 and losing 9 of 30 encounters with the Anchovi3es.

The Yellow Submarine have clinched an easy straightforward 2-0 victory when the two teams met in this term of La Liga at Estadio de la Ceramica.

None of last six head to head outings has produced three or more goals.

Malaga vs Villarreal: Prediction

Malaga have lost four on the bounce in front of the home crowd and we have to notice the value of the 2.05 odds offered for the away win pick here.

Since the Anchovies have had huge troubles with the efficiency in the final third recently, we will alternatively back the Yellow Submarine to keep a clean sheet here at the odds of 2.50.
