Our football match prediction:
Real Madrid were on the verge of beating Sevilla at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan at the weekend, but los Blancos eventually conceded two late goals and suffered a 2-1 loss in the La Liga derby. Nonetheless, Zinedine Zidane’s men remained in top position in the standings and they will be looking to return to winning ways in the league when they host Malaga at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Matchday 19. Cristiano Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot against Sevilla and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the Portuguese superstar when Real Madrid take on Malaga in Saturday’s football match. This has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts, who are eager to regain the domestic trophy and los Boquerones, who have been struggling at the back of late, are likely to return home empty-handed. Taking everything into account, home win should be considered.

The 183-cm-tall full back is capable of playing as a right back as well and, as a result, he often scores for Real Madrid.
