Our match prediction:
Malaga will be looking to record their first win of the season when they host Eibar at their Estadio La Rosaleda on Tuesday evening. Los Boquerones head into the game following back-to-back losses to the likes of Villarreal and Las Palmas and, no doubt, the hosts are going to leave their hearts on the field this time out. Malaga are desperate to move away from the danger zone and we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match. Eibar have been producing fine performances at the start of the season and they sit in seventh place in the standings ahead of the trip to Malaga. Anyhow, los Boquerones want this win more than los Armeros and we are tempted to put our money on the home team. In their last meeting in the national championship Malaga recorded a 2-1 win over Eibar.
Highligted Player (Roque Santa Cruz):
Roque Santa Cruz is one of the tallest strikers for Paraguay over the years. The 34-year-old striker has last appeared for the Spanish club Malaga on loan from Mexican club Cruz Azul. The lanky striker started his career in the youth teams of Olimpia and made his first-team debut at the age of 15 in 1997. His prolific scoring record with Olimpia earned him a transfer to German giants Bayern Munich in 1999 for a fee of €5 million. The initial promise didn’t convert to reality because of a series of injuries and heavy competition from team mates. His limited impact and appearances restricted his prolific scoring although he won numerous Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal titles with Bayern. Santa Cruz joined Manchester City in 2009 but injuries limited his performances. He is currently the all-time leading goal scorer for Paraguay with 32 goals and also the sixth ever player to reach 100 appearances.
