Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Betis will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Sevilla in the Seville derby when they take on Malaga at their Estadio Benito Villamarin in the opening match of day 6 of the new La Liga campaign. The two teams face each other in the Andalusian derby and, no doubt, there will be fireworks in Friday’s football match. Real Betis are eyeing their second win of the season, while Malaga will be looking to build on a come-from-behind victory over Eibar when they square off against Gustavo Poyet’s troops at Estadio Benito Villamarin. Both teams should be happy with one point from the match and there is every chance Real Betis and Malaga are going to share the spoils in Friday’s encounter. Youngster En Nesyri came as a substitute and scored the winner against Eibar and we predict that he is going to lead the attack for the visitors against los Beticos.
