Our match prediction:
Granada and Malaga take on each other in the Andalusian derby on Friday evening. Los Granadinos showed character in a 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao at the weekend and they will be looking to build on the performance when they welcome Malaga at their Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. The hosts are eager to escape the danger zone, but Friday’s game against los Boquerones will be anything but a walk in the park for them. Malaga have been impressive at the back of late, with the team conceding only goal in last three league games and, no doubt, the visitors will rely on their rock-solid defence in the local derby. Javi Gracia’s men aim to retain their place in top ten, but they will be more than happy with one point from Friday’s football game. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two sides will play out a goalless draw on Matchday 32.
