Our football match prediction:
Malaga and Granada take on each other in the Andalusian derby on Friday evening. Los Boquerones played out a 2-2 draw with Valencia at Estadio de Mestalla at the weekend, with Fornals scoring a late equalizer for Juande Ramos’ troops. Malaga aim to regain their spot in top ten and it remains to be seen if they are capable of extending their winning run at home to six games. Los Boquerones defeated the likes of Eibar, Athletic Club, Leganes, Sporting Gijon and Deportivo La Coruna in previous five home fixtures, but they can’t afford any complacency in Friday’s football against the fellow Andalusian side. Granada recorded their first win of the season on Saturday, with the team beating third-placed Sevilla in front of home fans, but the team’s away record is anything but good and we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from the Andalusian derby.
Highligted Player (Carlos Kameni):
Carlos Kameni is considered one of the best African goalkeepers of all times. The Cameroonian international played for Kadji Sports during his youth career and in 2000 he signed a contract with Le Havre. Four years later Carlos Kameni joined Espanyol and he made no less than 222 appearances for the Catalan outfit. On 13 January, 2012 the Cameroonian shoot-stopper moved to fellow La Liga side Malaga and he has been playing for los Boquerones ever since. Carlos Kameni was born in Douala, Cameroon on 18 February, 1984 and 18 years later he represented his homeland at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. He made Cameroon 2010 World Cup squad as well, but he did not see any game action at the showpiece tournament as French tactician Paul Le Guen preferred Souleymanou Hamidou over him. You should have in mind that Kameni’s older brother Mathurin was a goalkeeper as well. Carlos was named the Best African Goalkeeper for the 2006/2007 season.
Highlighted Team (Granada):
Granada are an Andalusian football club that plays in Spanish La Liga. The club were founded on 14 April, 1931 and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy. El Grana, though, booked their place in the Spanish Cup final in 1959, but Barcelona proved to be a big catch for the Andalusian outfit. Granada host their rivals at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes, the stadium that was built in 1995. The capacity of the stadium is 23,934. Granada’s main rivals are fellow Andalusian team Sevilla, but Real Betis are regarded as the club’s bitter rivals as well. The likes of Yacine Brahimi, Juan Aguero, Gustavo Benitez, Pahinho, Denis Milar, Julio Montero Castillo, Capi, Cesar and Jose Mingorance are famous players that were part of the Estadio El Sadar outfit in the past. The original colour of Granada’s kits were blue and white, but after the Spanish Civil War the club chiefs bought new ones (red and white).
