Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After suffering a 1-0 loss to Mirandes at the weekend, Malaga will be aiming to return to winning ways in La Liga 2 when they take on Sabadell on Matchday 28. Los Boquerones have been anything but impressive on home soil this season, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth win at Estadio La Rosaleda. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous three league fixtures.
Both Quintana and Enriquez are pushing for a start. Sabadell have been playing some low-scoring games of late as well, with team failing to find the net in three of their last four league fixtures. Since los Arlequinats have been struggling in front of goal in recent weeks, we are unlikely to see goals galore at Estadio La Rosaleda. In their last meeting in Andalusia the two sides played out a goalless draw.

David Lomban was born in Aviles, Asturias on 5 June, 1987 and he began his senior career at Valencia.

After making 62 appearances for the club, he signed a three-year contract with Granada on 10 August, 2015. Lomban played 31 games for los Granadinos in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, but he failed to find the net for the Andalusian outfit in the top flight.
David Lomban’s contract with Granada expires on 30 June, 2018. Speaking of his international career, the Granada defender has 11 caps for Spain U17 and he played one match for Spain U20 team as well.
Highlighted Team (Sabadell):
Sabadell is a professional Spanish club based in the autonomous community of Catalonia. Sabadell were founded back in 1903, with the team securing promotion to la liga for the first time during the World War II (1943/44).
Los Arlequinats have never won the national championship, but they did well to make it to the Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) final in 1935. Despite producing fine displays in the process, Sabadell were eventually beaten by Sevilla (0-3) in the title game. Nova Creu Alta is the club’s home ground, with the venue holding up to 11,908 spectators.
The stadium was built on August 20, 1967 by famous Spanish architect Gabriel Bracons Singla. Antonio Vazques (35 goals) is leading Sabadell’s all-time goal-scoring chart. It has to be noted that Sabadell fans have good relations with Bristol Rovers supporters. CD Ebro are seen as one of the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in el Derbi Arlequinado.
