Malaga vs Sevilla Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Malaga lost for the fourth consecutive game, as Athletic Bilbao secured a 2-1 win at the San Mames. Youssef En-Nesyri provided the La Liga strugglers with a shock lead after 13 minutes, but the game was brought back to level terms just four minutes later through Susaeta. Athletic Bilbao completed the comeback when San Jose scored just before half-time. Malaga’s day went from bad to worse after En-Nesyri received his marching orders in the 84th minute. Sevilla suffered a horrendous 5-2 thrashing from Atletico Madrid at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Diego Costa and Koke were on the scoresheet, but Antoine Griezmann’s hat-trick was the definite highlight. Pablo Sarabia and Nolito scored late goals to provide some positives for Vincenzo Montella’s team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sevilla had a day to forget during the weekend, as the team committed far too many mistakes against a solid Atletico Madrid outfit. Montella will be quick to use this shakeup as a motivation for further games. Sevilla need a win in this fixture in order to regain momentum ahead of the Champions League second leg game with Manchester United. Malaga go from one defeat to the other and are staring at a sixth consecutive loss. I would back a win for Sevilla. In the last six games between these two clubs, Sevilla have been able to get more than 1.5 goals in five matches. Even during the weekend thrashing against Atletico Madrid, Sevilla still managed to come up with two goals. I would back Sevilla to score over 1.5 goals, as it is available at an attractive price.

Malaga Preview

Malaga’s poor run has been so bad of late that the club are looking unlikely to salvage anything out of the campaign. The loss against Malaga left the club seven points behind safety and it is difficult to see the team winning two matches in the next few weeks – Malaga have only picked up three wins in 25 games so far. The Malaga outfit may have scored in the last two league matches, but they have been the worst team going forward this season with only 16 goals in 25 games. Gonzalo Castro and Diego Rolan still lead the scoring charts with three goals each.

Malaga Team News

Recio and Youssef En-Nesyri are the players unavailable due to suspension, while Adrian Gonzales (knee), Recio (knee), Keko (muscle), Federico Ricca (hamstring), Zdravko Kuzmanovic (calf), Adalberto Penaranda (hamstring), and Juankar (knee) are missing due to injuries.

Sevilla Preview

It only appears that Sevilla went through a terrible off day on all fronts, as the team had a disastrous loss against Atletico Madrid during the weekend. The consolation for Vincenzo Montella is the opportunity to get back to winning form quickly, as the team are up against a midweek encounter against Malaga. After three wins in five games, Sevilla were in a strong position for the Europa League qualification places. Now, the recent form does not look so impressive with two defeats in the last four. Wissam Ben Yedder and Pablo Sarabia are the club’s top scorers with six goals.

Sevilla Team News

Jesus Navas (calf), Simon Kjaer (calf), Sebastien Corchia (groin), and Lionel Carole (muscle) are the players missing from action for Sevilla, while Franco Vazquez and Sergio Escudero are suspended for the game.
