Almeria vs Malaga Prediction & Betting tips
In the previous one, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams can alternate possession and goal situations. For this reason and knowing that the “rojiblanco” box usually increases its level when acting as a local, we believe that the bet “more 1.5 goals” is interesting to bet. Remember that the Andalusians have started the championship well, standing out as a hierarchy in the competition. Paint to be a balanced duel thanks to the field factor of Almeria, which can balance the balance from the initial whistle.
The league start of the team has not been as expected, after recording 1 point out of 6 possible. It comes from losing 1-0 against Cádiz as a visitor and equaling 1-1 against Tenerife last Monday. For this duel it is expected that the holders risk at times, trying to attack but without losing the defensive balance. The logic indicates that the team tries to manage the times and protect themselves in the midfield. Of course, you could also score by some punctual play or using the ball stopped (corner or free kick near the area).
As a local, Almeria already played a match in the competition and the result was negative to a certain point (1-1 draw ceded to the 36 ‘of the second half after winning 1-0 from the 22’ of the first half). The objective of the team is to take advantage of the field factor to balance the actions, trying to neutralize their opponent in many aspects of the game. Of course, despite everything, the team remains competitive in Liga2, demonstrating it by adding adjusted results so far. Under our perception, the “rojiblancos” have what it takes to score at least one goal, not ruling out that they can register 2 if they are fine facing the opposing goal.
The present of the Andalusians can be cataloged as acceptable after adding 2 consecutive wins in the competition. Its objective is to extend this positive streak and position itself in the top of the Liga2. It comes to beat Lugo 1-2 over the end and overcome 1-0 to Alcorcón in a fairly rough duel from the initial stage. It remains a tactical and well-worked eleventh, noting its higher level compared to other sets of the category. Therefore, it should not surprise us that it is well planted in the stadium of the Mediterranean Games (ordered between lines and cash when attacking).
As a visitor, Malaga already played a game so far and the result was positive for their league interests (win 1-2 against Lugo after losing 0-1 from minute 6 of the first half). The best thing about that match was that he got the comeback in just 3 ‘minutes of play (41’ and 44 ‘of the second half). For this exit it is expected that the incumbents risk at times, since they will clash with a limited but combative opponent in their actions. Of course, having quality players in attack, goal plays can be generated throughout the game.
In the last 4 and a half years, Almería and Málaga have played 3 times in the stadium of the Mediterranean Games. These were the results of those matches: Draw 0-0 in February 2014, victory 1-2 of Malaga in May 2015 and win 0-4 of Malaga in August 2016 under the framework of a friendly club. Apparently, the last visits of Malaga to the “rojiblancos” have been positive, being possible to repeat their offensive production.
