Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Despite being regarded as big underdogs in Saturday’s football match against Barcelona, Malaga did remarkably well to play out a goalless draw with Luis Enrique’s troops at Camp Nou. However, it has to be noted that Barca stars Leo Messi and Luis Suarez both missed the game and that is the main reason why Malaga managed to grab something from the game. Los Boquerones are certainly high on confidence ahead of the visit of Deportivo La Coruna and a win over the Galician outfit should see them regain their spot in top ten in the La Liga standings. Deportivo dropped a two-goal advantage in a 3-2 loss to Sevilla at the weekend and seeing that their away performances leave a lot to be desired, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash at Estadio La Rosaleda. You should bear in mind that Malaga are after their fifth consecutive win at home in La Liga.
