Our football match prediction:
Las Palmas will be looking to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Atletico Madrid when they square off against Malaga at Estadio La Rosaleda on Monday evening. Los Amarillos saw several first-team regulars leave the club in the summer transfer window and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure the La Liga survival. Spain international Vitolo, who joined the club on loan earlier this summer, returns to the starting line-up and he will be the man to watch in the away side. Malaga suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Eibar and Girona at the start of the season and seeing that both sides are likely to go for a win in Monday’s football match, we predict that fans will see a real football festival at Estadio La Rosaleda. It has to be noted that Malaga recorded a 2-1 win over Las Palmas in their last meeting in the Spanish top flight.
