Malaga vs Leganes Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Malaga’s lapse in concentration over a small period saw them succumb to a 2-0 loss against Sevilla. Even though Malaga did well to prevent the home team from taking the lead in the first half, the team conceded two goals in the space of two minutes – through Ever Banega (penalty) and Luis Muriel – gave the home team all three points. Leganes were able to continue their good form with a goalless draw against top-three chasing Atletico Madrid. Goalkeeper Pichu Cuellar made several saves to keep out Atletico Madrid, who had six shots at goal.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This is only the third meeting between Leganes and Malaga. The former is yet to take a victory against this opponent. Surprisingly, I see greater value in expecting a win for Leganes in this game, as both wins for Asier Garitano’s team this season have been on the road. Malaga have lost five out of the last six matches. Even though the team picked up a valuable point in the recent home match, they are up against a Leganes team on high confidence. I would back a win for Leganes.

Leganes have been able to keep the points table ticking even while not scoring a large number of goals. Only one of the seven games involving Leganes this season have been with over 2.5 goals. This statistic is likely to have a profound impact even with Malaga are witnessing some high-scoring matches – largely due to their poor defence. Yet, Malaga were resolute in their recent game against Sevilla. I would back this game to produce less than 2.5 goals.

Leganes win – 12/5

Total goals under 2.5 – 8/15

Malaga have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 4 games against Leganes

Leganes saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Malaga Preview

Malaga manager Michel’s position is under serious threat with the club now slipping to the bottom of the table as a result of Deportivo Alaves getting a first win of the season. Malaga have so far managed a single point from the seven matches, and there is already a danger of the team being cut off from the safety positions. Malaga are five points behind Las Palmas and this seems like a huge deficit in the wake of Malaga’s struggles to even get a point out of the game. The club are amongst the lowest scorers this season with just four goals in seven matches – three of those came in the match against Athletic Bilbao.

Malaga Team News

Federico Ricca (hamstring), Diego Gonzalez (knee), Luis Hernandez (ankle), Borja Baston (hamstring), and Miguel Angel Cifuentes (toe), and Cenk Gonen (thigh) are the players unavailable for Malaga.

Leganes Preview

Leganes continue to surprise many after managing to get a goalless draw against Atletico Madrid in the recent game. Even though the only victory for the club in the recent five matches is a narrow 2-0 away success against Las Palmas, it has been enough to keep the club in the top 10 even after almost 10 matches. Leganes have suffered only two defeats this season and it is amongst the better records in this early 2017-18 La Liga table. Diego Rolan is the leading scorer with two league goals.

Leganes Team News

Julian Ramos Omar (thigh), Serantes (shoulder), and Ezequiel Munoz (back) are the players missing from action for Leganes manager Asier Garitano.
