Real Madrid VS Málaga


Real Madrid and Malaga face off on this match of the 32nd round of La Liga.

The home team is currently the second placed team on the table with 73 points. On the last round they dispatched Eibar at home 3-0.

The head to head history clearly favours Real: 8 wins and 1 draw on their last 10 matches.

Analysis of Real Madrid

Real Madrid has only one important player in doubt for this match, Benzema. The Frenchmen’s presence (or not) might change Ancelotti’s tactical approach with the Italian possibly opting for a 4-4-2 with Isco as the creative instead of the normal 4-3-3.

With James and Modric back in the line-up Real has won much needed consistency. Highlighting the Croatian, he is the responsible for setting the offensive rhythm of the team setting picks and taking advantage of open spaces.

The team’s major weak spot is the hard time they have facing quick transitions leaving their defence in inferiority a lot of times.

Probable line-up: Casillas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Modric, James Rodríguez; Javier Hernandez, Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coach: Carlo Ancelotti

Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Arbeloa, Isco, L. Modrić, T. Kroos, J. Rodríguez, Cristiano Ronaldo, G. Bale.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Analysis of Málaga

Malaga should present itself on the usual 4-2-3-1 formation privileging quick transitions and bombed balls to the opponent’s box.

The speeders responsible for their attacking play will be Castillejo and Juanmi. The Spanish is especially dangerous with amazing speed, 1v1 capabilities and finishing accuracy (5 goals).

On the mid field the key player is Darder. Essential on the team’s offensive and defensive dynamics.

Probable line-up: Kameni; Rosales, Sánchez, Weligton, Boka; Darder, Recio, Samuel, Juanmi, Samuel Castillejo; Amrabat.
Coach: Javi Garcia

Confirmed Lineup: C. Kameni, M. Angeleri, A. Boka, Sergio Sánchez, R. Rosales, Samu, Recio, Darder, Samu Castillejo, Juanmi, N. Amrabat.
Coach: Javi Gracia.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is the appearance of more than one goal on the second half. It is expected that both teams will start the match with some defensive cautions that will diminish on the second half due to exhaustion on both squads.
