Disappointing Villarreal travel to Malaga, who also show quite humble results at the start of the season.
Malaga take on the visitors Villarreal in the round 3 match of Spanish La Liga. The match will be played at La Rosaleda Stadium on Saturday, September 10th.
Juande Ramos’ men finished last season only one place behind the eurocup zone, on eighth position. Of course, the team would want to make a step up this season and gain the right to play in Europe. The start of the season wasn’t great for the team as they’ve taken tow draws in two matches with Osasuna, 1-1, and Espanyol, 2-2. The club didn’t make any notable signings this summer and want to improve results with current first team.
Villarreal have quite poor start of the season. The Yellow Submarine played four matches and failed to win a single one. The situation in the league can be improved but the place in the group stage of the Champions League is already lost to Monaco, 1-2, 0-1. Two Primera matches ended also with two draws, 1-1 with Granada and 0-0 with Sevilla.
Villarreal are undefeated in head-to-heads with Malaga in their last four head-to-heads, taking wins in recent three with 4-1 on aggregate. Both teams aren’t in their best conditions and aren’t ready to battle for victories, drawing their league matches. We can try a quite risky pick, choosing to bet on a draw in this match. Of course, risk is high but it’s nullified by nice odds.
Prediction for the match: Draw.
