Our football match prediction:
Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos will host Tuesday’s football game between Numancia and Malaga, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2017/2018 season. Malaga aim to secure yet another La Liga survival, whilst Numancia’s main goal is to return to the Spanish top flight. Los Numantinos have been impressive at home ground this season and they are definitely capable of claiming a major scalp in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey. A man to watch in the home team will be Pere Milla, who has been in a fine form in the first half of the season. Los Boquerones, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, but the game against the Segunda Division team could be the turning point for the La Liga side. The Andalusians, though, are not regarded as good travelers and given Numancia’s impressive home record, we predict that Arrasate’s men will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Tuesday.
