Malaga vs Levante Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Malaga come on the back of a narrow 3-2 loss against Real Madrid during the weekend. Malaga came back twice in the game through the Diego Rolan and Gonzalo Castro. These goals helped Malaga to cancel goals from Karim Benzema and Casemiro. However, Cristiano Ronaldo came up with a late winner to give the home team three points. Michel’s followed this result with a Copa del Rey exit on aggregate at the hands of lower league Numancia. Levante suffered a heavy 5-0 loss against Atletico Madrid during the weekend. An own goal from Rober kicked off proceedings in the fifth minute. A brace from Kevin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann were responsible for a heavy defeat. Levante progressed into the next round of the Copa del Rey by beating Girona 3-1 on aggregate.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Malaga were able to do the double over Levante when these two teams met each other during the 2015-16 campaign. Michel is clearly targeting home games in order to get out of the drop zone, as Malaga have picked up back-to-back wins at the La Rosaleda. Meanwhile, Levante have surprisingly managed to survive just one defeat in five away matches. Yet, I would go with a victory for Malaga based on recent results. The games involving Malaga tend to provide plenty of goals, as the team has one of the worst defensive records of the campaign. It is not a surprise that there have been more than 2.5 goals in three out of the last five. Levante have also gone through a similar record in the last five league matches. I would back over 2.5 goals in this game.

Malaga win – 4/5

Total goals over 2.5 – 1/1

Levante saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Malaga Preview

After a horrendous start to the season, Malaga are slowly finding their feet. Yet, the recent set of results have not translated into an improvement in league position by a significant margin. Malaga still remain in the relegation zone and have to make up at least five points if they are to think about escaping the drop. Falling further behind the safety positions will only increase the likelihood of relegation for a team which has scored only 11 goals so far this season. Meanwhile, Malaga have the second worst defensive record with an astonishing 28 goals conceded so far. Diego Rolan is the top scorer with three league goals.

Malaga Team News

Juan Carlos (cruciate ligament), Miguel Torres (calf), and Zdravko Kuzmanovic (calf) are ruled out of the game, while Recio is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Levante Preview

Levante’s confidence has taken a major blow after the heavy loss against Atletico Madrid. It not only marked the second consecutive home defeat for Juan Muniz’ team, but it resulted in the team remaining only a couple of points above the relegation zone. Levante remain one of the poorest teams going forward this season with only 14 goals in 13 matches. Only a handful of teams have scored fewer than Levante. Jose Luis Morales and Enis Bardhi are the leading scorers with four goals each.

Levante Team News

Ivan Lopez (cruciate ligament), Roger Marty Salvador (cruciate ligament), Cheick Doukoure (leg), Alex Alegria (cruciate ligament), Sasa Lukic (thigh), and Rober (ankle) are unavailable for Levante.
