Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be fireworks when Granada and Malaga face each other in the Andalusian derby on Monday evening. Los Granadinos are eager to return to La Liga, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal. Miguel Rubio suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Huesca, with Victor Diaz likely to step up. Miguel Angel Rubio is banned for the match, while both Ricard Sanchez and Ruben Rochina are out of contention with injuries.
Los Boquerones, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Zaragoza, and they managed to get one in style (3-0), with the team keeping their survival hopes alive. Malaga, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Granada’s party at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. As for the visiting side, all Haitam Abaida, Moussa Diarra, and Victor Olmo remain on the sidelines with injuries.
