Our match prediction:
Real Betis and Malaga square off against each other in the Andalusian derby on Saturday evening. Los Beticos aim to recover from a 3-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao, while los Boquerones will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sporting Gijon. Considering that Estadio Benito Villamarin will host the local derby, there is every chance we will see a close game this time out. Los Beticos are on a five-game unbeaten run at home ground and we believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s clash. Malaga failed to record a win in previous three away matches in La Liga, but you should know that they scored three goals in the draw with Deportivo at “Riazor” on Matchday 28. It has been five years since Real Betis and Malaga played out a goalless draw in the league, but we predict that the two teams will share the spoils on Saturday night.
