Malaga vs Valencia Preview

 

Malaga vs Valencia

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio La Rosaleda

Date: 17th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Malaga ended last season ahead of Valencia but this season has been very different for both teams.

While Valencia are looking like they might end the season in a Champions League place, Malaga are closer to the relegation zone.

Valencia recruited well last summer but Malaga sold their key players and failed to replace them.

The Andalusians fired Michel and brought in Jose Gonzalez but they are still struggling and head into this game with just two points from their last four games.

Malaga are getting better defensively but their attack is really not good enough.

Their last 11 competitive games have seen under 2.5 goals scored by both teams.

Valencia are the better team going forward but a few injuries at the moment has disrupted their flow and the energy they showed at the beginning of the season.

They come into this game having failed to score in 3 of their last 4 games and considering that Malaga has not conceded more than a goal in a match since December, you would feel Los Che could struggle here again.

Valencia have 3 wins from their last 5 games against Malaga.
