Malaga vs Girona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Malaga remain winless in five matches after only picking up a 1-1 draw with Eibar last weekend. Youssef En-Nesyri providing the opening goal after just 16 minutes gave Malaga a lot of confidence. The away team were able to resist Eibar for much of the match before conceding the equaliser in the 76th minute through Kike. Zdravko Kuzmanovic was sent off late in the match with a second yellow card. Girona were able to pick up a surprise 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano. Antoine Griezmann converted from Diego Costa’s cushioned header in the 34th minute, but Girona came back into the game with the second-half equaliser from Portu.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Malaga will be relatively happy with the point against Eibar. It sets the team well for a run of three home games in the next four. Girona’s away form is surprisingly decent with just two defeats in the last five. Both these losses came against inform opponents – Eibar and Valencia. Despite Malaga’s home advantage, I would opt for a draw.

Girona’s forward line-up seems capable of coming up with goals even in unlikely circumstances. The team has scored in each of the last 14 La Liga matches. Girona’s last failure to score in the league was against Barcelona in September. Malaga, meanwhile, have been unable to score in the last three home games. A game with under 2.5 goals seems likely in my opinion.

Draw – 21/10

Total goals under 2.5 – 7/10

Malaga have conceeded only 1 goals in their last 2 games against Girona

Girona saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Girona have conceeded only 0 goals in their last 2 games against Malaga

Malaga Preview

After sticking with Michel for a substantial period of time, Malaga are finding that their managerial change to bring in José Manuel Gonzalez is yet to reap rewards. The club are winless in the last five games, while the point against Eibar only managed to stop the four-game losing sequence in the league. Paul Baysse is the notable departure from Malaga in this transfer window, while the club has brought in the likes of Samu Garcia, Alberto Bueno, Manuel Iturra, and Ignasi Miquel so far in the window.

Malaga Team News

Zdravko Kuzmanovic is suspended for the game after his sending off against Eibar, while Adalberto Penaranda (hamstring) and Juan Carlos (cruciate ligament) are missing from action for Malaga.

Girona Preview

Girona continue to remain as one of the surprise packages of this campaign. After getting a point against Atletico Madrid, Girona have been able to retain the confidence brought about by the mammoth 6-0 win over Las Palmas. Even more surprising is that Girona have managed a decent return of 13 points from the 10 away matches this season. Even the likes of Espanyol and Sevilla have picked up fewer points than Girona, while Pablo Machin’s team have also picked up more home points than the likes of Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad. Christian Stuani is the top scorer with 10 goals, while Portu is not far behind with eight.

Girona Team News

Juanpe and Aday are the players suspended for the game, while Christian Stuani (concussion), Johan Mojica (overload), Michael Olunga (overload), Jose Aurelio Suarez (shoulder), and Yassine Bounou (knee) are unavailable due to injuries.
