Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio La Rosaleda will host Saturday’s Segunda Division game between Malaga and Eibar. Los Boquerones aim to move away from the danger zone, while los Armeros are eager to retain top position in the standings. Malaga recorded a very important win over Leganes (3-0) at the weekend, but they can’t afford any complacency in the season finale. Senegal international Sekou Gassama is pushing for a rare start after finding the net against the capital club, while all Hicham, Chavarria, and Adrian Lopez remain in the recovery room.
Genaro Rodriguez faces race against clock to be fit for the match. Eibar, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run. The Basques have been struggling at the back of late, and given Malaga’s display in the crushing of Leganes, home win should be considered. As for the away side, Ager Aketxe misses out through suspension, while all Correa, Franchu, and Arbilla have been struggling with injuries of late.
