Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
There will be fireworks when Malaga and Real Betis square off against each other at Estadio la Rosaleda in the Andalusian derby. Malaga are eager to secure yet another La Liga survival and a win at Real Sociedad undisputedly helped them move one step closer to meeting the goal. The victory over La Real gave los Boquerones a confidence boost and the fact that los Beticos have been totally out of form of late is going in favour of the home side as well. Real Betis are on a three-game losing run in all competitions and we predict the hosts will take advantage of the situation. Quique Setien’s men have been slipping down the standings week by week and we do not believe away win should be considered. Borja Baston found the net against Real Sociedad, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
