Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 21st January 2017
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid.

The end to Malaga’s crisis is nowhere to be seen. Juande Ramos left the team after Malaga conceded eight goals in back-to-back defeats to Sevilla and Cordoba. The assistant manager Marcelo Romero took over, but he can’t be proud on the start of the New Year since he lost to Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad by two goals each.

It’s not hard to guess how he feels ahead of the travel to Santiago Bernabeu knowing that his defensive line is full of holes to be exploited by in-form Real Madrid strikers. The defense is crippled without first team players Miguel Torres, Federico Ricca and Weligton, who are all sidelined due to injury troubles.

Real Madrid, on the other side, suffered the first defeat in this season on Sunday evening when Zidane’s men allowed two late goals against Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The Spanish La Liga has thus became much more interesting since Los Blancos now only have a single point advantage ahead of Sevilla in second and two points ahead of Barca in third.

The Blancos were then beaten at their home ground by Celta Vigo 2-1 in the mid-week Copa del Rey tie. They will be more than desperate to bounce back with a win on Saturday. However, Real Madrid have five wins on the bounce at Santiago Bernabeu and the only question ahead of the clash with struggling Malaga is the margin of the victory.

Real Madrid vs Malaga: Head-to-Head Stats

Malaga have a single win in 32 games with Real Madrid. The Champions League winners are much more successful with 23 victories, but they failed to beat Malaga in last two games.
