Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio La Rosaleda will host Saturday’s Segunda Division game between Malaga and Fuenlabrada, the two teams who shared the spoils with Las Palmas and Sabadell respectively at the weekend. Los Boquerones have been in a fine form of late, and, no doubt, they are determined to book their place in the playoffs. This game is of big importance for the Andalusian outfit, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field.
Serbia international Stefan Scepovic, who found the net in the 1-1 draw with Las Palmas, is pushing for a start. Fuenla, on the other hand, failed to win the previous four league fixtures, and, as a result, they have slim chances of securing a top-six finish. Considering that this has to go down as a must-win game for Malaga, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team.

Highlighted Team (Fuenlabrada):
Nicknamed los Kirikos, Fuenlabrada is a Spanish football club that competes in Segunda Division. Fuenlabrada was founded in 1975, with the team securing promotion to La Liga 2 for the first time in the 2019/20 season.
Fuenla finished the campaign in the 8th place in the standings, and, as a result, they missed out on a place in the Segunda division playoffs. Los Kirikos wear blue shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while their away kit is mainly red. Estadio Fernando Torres is the club’s home ground. The venue was named under legendary Spanish attacker Fernando Torres, who scored 38 goals in 110 appearances for La Furia Roja on the international stage.
“El Nino”, who was born in Fuenlabrada, played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Milan, and Sagan Tosu during his professional career. Dioni is leading Fuenlabrada all-time top scorers list as he netted 47 goals in 82 appearances for the club.
