Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Malaga take on Levante at their Estadio la Rosaleda on day 14 of the new La Liga campaign. Los Boquerones produced a fine display in Saturday’s football game against Real Madrid, but they eventually suffered a 3-2 loss to Zinedine Zidane’s troops at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Anyhow, the Andalusian side have found their form of late and it is no surprise they are considered favourites to win Friday’s clash against Numancia. Malaga did well to beat Celta Vigo and Deportivo La Coruna in previous two home fixtures in the national championship, thus there is a big value in betting on Michel’s charges. Levante, on the other hand, were hammered by Atletico Madrid (0-5) at the weekend and the lack of confidence should prove to be a big problem for the visitors in the Estadio La Rosaleda showdown. Taking everything into account, we predict los Levantinos will return to Valencia.
