Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following an unlucky loss to Granada in the Andalusian derby, Malaga will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Racing Santander in the La Liga 2 round 30. Los Boquerones rolled over Zaragoza 3-0 in their last home game, which is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Santander. Aleix Febas serves a one-game ban, while all Pablo Chavarria, Unai Bustinza, Haitam Abaida, Moussa Diarra, and Victor Olmo should miss out with injuries.
Los Verdiblancos, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Andorra. Santander, though, have been struggling on the road of late, with the team failing to win the last away games, and that is the main reason why home win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Jordi Mboula, who managed to find the net in each of their previous three league fixtures.
