Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Ponferradina, Real Valldolid will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Malaga on Matchday 9. La Pucela have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach against los Boquerones. Defender Diogo Lucas Queiros is banned for the match, while Toni Villa is pushing for a start.
The Andalusians, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Fuenlabrada, but given their poor away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Real Valladolid. You should bear in mind, though, that Real Valladolid are eyeing their first win over Malaga since April 2007. Malaga midfielder Alberto Escassi returns to contention after serving his one-game ban in the triumph over Fuenla.
Highlighted Player (Bruno González):
Bruno Gonzales Cabrera is a product of Tenerife football academy. The 184-cm-tall defender played 77 games for los Blanquiazules before joining Real Betis in 2014. Bruno signed a three-year deal with the Andalusian outfit and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the La Liga club.
The centre-back scored three goals in 81 appearances for los Beticos in the league and at the end of the 2016/2017 La Liga campaign he moved to fellow Spanish club Getafe. Bruno Gonzalez was born in Las Galletas, Spain on May 24, 1990 and he has yet to make his debut for the Spain national football team.
You should bear in mind that he scored his first professional goal on December 1, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Girona during his spell with Real Betis. His preferred foot is right and his contract with Getafe should expire on June 30, 2020.
