Malaga – Valencia : Preview & Prediction
The Malaga season has been very bad for their interests, having to fight to the end to save themselves from the relegation. Their numbers have been disastrous, being known to be an unbalanced set between lines, either in the Rose Garden or outside it. It is expected that the boys of Marcelino can impose their highest individual quality to win this exit even by a goal of difference.
News from Málaga
The Andalusians lost 0-1 against Atlético de Madrid in the Rosaleda and remain sunk in the last position of the table with only 13 units in total. They have lost 2 games in a row, having to react if they do not want to go to the League2. The main problem of the squad is its lack of balance between lines, being vital that it improves in defense if it wants to stay in the first division.
The numbers of Malaga in the Rose garden are quite discreet when adding few points before their people (2 wins, 3 draws and 6 falls). The main problem of the team lies in its low offensive efficiency, demonstrating it by not scoring in several games played at home (9 goals in favor and 16 against).
News from Valencia
The Marcelino boys campaign has been acceptable, despite having lowered its level in the last 2 months. Luckily for his aspirations, he won 3-1 at Levante in Mestalla and cut a streak of 3 consecutive defeats. He currently has 43 points in the table, his goal being to stay in the fight to qualify for the next Champions League.
Acting outside the home, the squad “che” has alternated good and bad results after winning 5 matches, equaling another 2 and losing the remaining 4 that played in this condition (20 goals scored and 16 transferred in their goal). A striking detail is that Valencia was 7 games without losing as a visitor, losing then 4 of his last 5 starts. He could only win 1-2 at Deportivo in Riazor. Later it lost 2-1 before Las Palmas and 1-0 against Athletic of Madrid.
The last time they played Malaga and Valencia was a few months ago and ended in a landslide in favor of the “ches” (5-0). In La Rosaleda, Málaga has alternated good and bad results against this rival (win 1-0 in February 2015, defeat 1-2 in March 2016 and victory 2-0 in April 2017).
Forecast Málaga vs Valencia
For nobody is a secret that Malaga is one of the worst teams in the championship. And it is as much in the defensive section as in the offensive one. Therefore, knowing that his imbalance has prevented him from winning games in the Rosaleda, we believe that Valencia can take advantage of its greater hierarchy to manage the times and take advantage of any goal situation it may generate. The process will obviously be fought for the combative style of the Andalusians. However, this is not enough to be able to overcome a group with ups and downs and everything is fighting at the top of the table. We visualized a 0-1 or 0-2 in favor of those led by Marcelino, not ruling out a 1-2 if Malaga manages to match the match much more than expected.
