Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Malaga will be looking to build on the Copa del Rey win over Coruxo when they host Logrones at their Estadio La Rosaleda. Los Boquerones suffered yet another dip in form, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in La Liga 2. Malaga aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Sunday’s clash.
Logrones looked unstoppable in November, but they do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Andalusia. The newcomers are on a five-game losing run in Segunda Division, and seeing that they failed to impress in the Copa del Rey defeat to Amorebieta, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Ivan Calero, who suffered a serious injury in the 3-1 loss to Almeria, is out of contention for los Boquerones.
