Malaga vs Villarreal Preview

 

Malaga vs Villarreal

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio La Rosaleda

Date: 1st  April 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Despite their relegation to the Segunda division almost confirmed, Malaga put up a spirited display in their last game against Celta Vigo to draw 0-0.

That result still doesn’t change much as they have collected only 14 points all season and are currently 13 points away from safety.

Villarreal on their path are edging closer to securing a place in the Europa League next season, and their win over Atletico Madrid just before the international break was a major morale booster for them and helped them solidify their grip on 5th place.

Their previous misfiring strikers have come good in recent fixtures and they have won their last two consecutive league games.

With no European or Cup distraction, they could close the gap on Valencia who are 4th.

Malaga have almost nothing to offer in attack as they have netted 2 goals in their last 9 league games, and have not scored a goal in their last 4 league games.

They also have the unwanted record of the lowest scoring side in the division and they have not scored in 69% of their matches and 64% of their home games this season.
