Malaga host Rayo Vallecano at La Rosaleda on the Primera matchday 34.
With 5 games left to the end of the season Malaga still have small chances to qualify to the Europa League. The hosts recorded 10 wins, 11 draws and 12 defeats in 34 games this season. They have scored 30 and conceded the same number of goals. The Anchovies are currently 8th in the league table with 41 points earned. We should mention Javi Garcia’s side have been quite inconsistent this season as they won only 6 of their 16 home games. Most likely it is due to their defense-like football.

Rayo Vallecano have been battling to avoid relegation once again. They have recorded 8 wins, 10 draws and 15 defeats. Rayo Vallecano have -20 goal difference. The Vallecans are 16th at the moment with 34 points earned. On top of that Paco Jemez’ side are 5 points above the red zone. We should mention that Rayo Vallecano have the worst defense in the league, but still they are averaging 3.3 goals per game. On top of that they are just horrible on the road with only 1 victory and 9 defeats in 16 away games this season (21:40 goal difference).
It’s hard to say that any of the two sides have advantage in head-to-heads. However, Malaga were victorious in their first matchup this season (2:1). Rayo Vallecano beat Villarreal last matchday, while Malaga were beaten by Athletic Bilbao 0:1. The hosts are not way more skillful than Rayo, however, the latter’s away record is the main reason why we are sticking with the hosts.
Prediction: Malaga to win.
