Villarreal vs Malaga Prediction & Betting tips
An entertaining match on this Sunday is the one played by Villarreal and Málaga for a new date in the Santander League.
In my opinion, the “Yellow Submarine” leaves as a favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that it possesses, which usually increases when it acts in the Madrigal. For this reason and knowing that the Andalusians are irregular at the time of scoring, we recommend playing a few euros to the simple triumph of those led by the young Javi Calleja. At stake is to climb positions in the general table and get into positions of European competition.
Take into account that Villarreal played against Slavia Prague to visit the Europa League last Thursday (). In the Spanish tournament, managed to steal a point to Atlético de Madrid in the Metropolitan Wanda, reaching to add 17 units in total. Of course, he cut a streak of 3 consecutive victories, his goal being to stay expectant in the fight to qualify for the next Champions League.
On the other hand do not forget that the “Yellow Submarine” has recorded acceptable results in the Madrigal, after beating 3-1 at Betis, equal 0-0 against Espanyol, beat 3-0 to Eibar and crush 4-0 at Las Palmas. For the Europa League they beat Astana 3-1 in Kazakhstan and drew 2-2 against Czech Slavia Prague.
Continuing with the analysis, you should know that Málaga beat Celta 2-1 at home in the Rosaleda, reaching their first win after 9 games without being able to win (1 loss and 8 falls). With 3 points in the table, you need to continue adding to get out of the direct descent. Of course, despite its irregularity, it remains a competitive and uncomfortable to overcome.
And finally we tell you that the Andalusians have reaped negative results by playing away from home, after falling 1-0 to Girona, losing 1-0 to Atlético de Madrid, losing 5-0 to Valencia, falling 2-0 to Sevilla in Sánchez Pizjuán and losing 2-0 to Barcelona.
After having reviewed the details of this match I play for a victory of the local box due to the following reasons: First, because Villarreal is a competitive and complicated to overcome since the arrival of coach Javi Calleja, who recovered the squad after a very disappointing start. Second because the “Yellow Submarine” has been shown as a relatively effective eleven in the Madrigal, its objective being to maintain this characteristic but to improve a little more in defense. And third because Málaga has been the worst team in the championship, lacking defensive strength and tranquility in the development. Given this reality, we believe that Villarreal can take advantage of the spaces left by the Andalusians at certain moments of the game and win by a difference goal at least (1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 after the final whistle).
