On the upcoming Monday, Malaga will host Las Palmas at their home ground, a sort of South Spanish derby. Bookmakers are on the future hosts’ side in this couple, but it is important to note, that Malaga have started the season weakly, but the pause for the national team’s games should have made the boys from the south of Spain come to their senses.
Malaga have 0 points and 0 scored goals in the asset after two matches in a row. At first, the future hosts hosted Eibar at their home ground. The match ended in a 0:1 loss. After that, the Anchovies were weaker, than Girona, also losing to the opponent with a score of 0:1. There is nothing surprising in Malaga having problems with scoring goals at the start of the season. The thing is, that Sandro Ramirez has left the team for the EPL, who last season was Malaga’s best goalscorer.
Las Palmas also started with two consecutive losses in Primera. At first, the Islanders lost to Valencia away, 0:1, and after that they were crushed by Atletico Madrid, 1:5. Not everything is smooth with the team’s attack: Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jese have left the team, while Vitolo and Loic Remy replaced them. Clearly, they both need time to adapt on a new place.
Both teams are experiencing problems with attack and scored goals. In this situation, the optimal option for betting is total under. Malaga play decently in defense in general, conceding little goals, whereas Malaga will put maximum effort to win the forthcoming match.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.25 goal in the match
