Malaga CF welcome the visitors Sporting de Gijon in the Spanish La Liga 2 – Round 32. The match will be held on Friday, March, 29th, at the Estadio La Rosaleda (Malaga).
Having won Gimnastic de Tarragona in the last round, the hosting Malaga CF broke their 4-round winless streak. Actually, they lost in only 1 game of 4 but descended to the 4th place; so, now, they are 4 points off the cherished 2nd tier. The handicap can be managed in the remaining 11 rounds, but it shouldn’t be increased in home clashes though.

The visiting Sporting de Gijon conceded in 3 successive rounds, but won in 4 ones lately. Such a run enabled the team to return their lost position, take the 10th place and reduce the playoff handicap to 6 points. That said, the winning series saw Sporting win over the same-class opponents – the 8th Oviedo and the 9th Almeria – and the outsiders, the 15th Numancia and the second-last Cordoba. Now they head to one of the leaders who are not very welcoming as far as their clashes with Sporting are concerned.
Over the span of around 20 years, Sporting visited Malaga 9 times, celebrated no victories in those trips and suffered 6 losses. The team are seemingly on the go, but they won only same-level or weaker opponents. After the 4-round debilitation, Malaga bounced back and are ready to fight for the automatic promotion to the La Liga. Of all their 15 wins, 9 were gained at home. They’ve been winless in 4 recent encounters on their soil; however, they did not win in 4 matches overall and broke the streak in the last fixture. Now they host a very comfortable side to rectify this problem. Moreover, Sporting’s victorious run takes too long. Even the leaders did not celebrate 5 wins in a row – the guests won’t do either. Most likely, they will not bring any points from their Friday trip. This way or another, Malaga boast a stronger squad: Pacheco, Adrian, Moran, and Leschuk feature a top-league level (3 of the players competed in the Primeira for most of their career). Malaga host the game and know how to win the visitors.
Prediction for the match: Malaga CF to win home.
