Malaga take on the visitors Atletico Madrid at “La Rosaleda” in the gameweek 23 of the Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 10th.
In this season Malaga is a hopeless outsider of the Spanish elite division. At the moment “Boquerones” settle on the last position in the standings with only 13 points gained after 22 rounds behind. The side’s offense is real disaster as it has managed to score only 14 goals so far which is the worse result in the LaLiga unlike its defense which feels much better with 35 goals conceded and that statistic is more common for the mid-table performer. As for the club’s results in face of its fans, Malaga participated in 10 home fights, having earned nine points with nine goals for and 15 goals against as well as two wins, three draws and five defeats in them.

In their turn, Atletico Madrid currently occupy the second place in the LaLiga table with 49 points taken and 33-9 goal difference after 22 matches played, being nine points behind the leading Barcelona. After unconvincing start of the season, Diego Simeone’s team has finally started to show its usual football with limited number of scored goals and even less number of goals conceded. “Los Colchoneros” don’t need lopsided victories as they are quite able to dictate their will to the top clubs by using their common pressure. Atletico Madrid conducted 13 battles on the road, having got 24 points with 18-5 goal difference after seven triumphs, three draws and single loss obtained in them.
Atletico Madrid celebrated 2:0 triumph over Malaga in the reverse fixture played earlier in this season. This time “Boquerones” will sit on their half of the pitch and try to shut out while the visitors will not push hard to smash the rival as at the moment it is more important for “Los Colchoneros” to get maximum points with minimal efforts in order to stay in the hunt for the champion’s title.
Prediction for the match: Atletico Madrid to win with -2.0 Asian handicap.
