Our football match prediction:
Following a 2-1 win over Celta de Vigo, Malaga suffered a 2-0 loss to Villarreal at Estadio de la Ceramica. Los Boquerones remained in the ultimate position in the La Liga standings, but Sunday’s football match against Deportivo La Coruna could be the turning point for the hosts. The Andalusian side made a very slow start to the season, but they are only four points behind 17th-placed Eibar, thus they should not be written off just yet. Deportivo, on the other hand, were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Atletico Madrid before the international break, but Thomas Partey eventually helped los Rojiblancos pick up all three points from the match. The Galicians sit in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Malaga, meaning that they are likely to take Sunday’s clash very seriously. Seeing that both teams want to return to winning ways, we predict that fans will see a high-scoring affair at Estadio La Rosaleda.
