Malaga take on the visitors Las Palmas in the round 2 match of Spanish LaLiga 2. The match will be played on Monday, August 22nd at Estadio La Rosaleda (Málaga).
Malaga under Al-Thani was at its peak, but now they are close to failure. The Anchovies were once seen as the new PSG or Manchester City. But the real opportunities of the Qatari businessman were enough for a promising starting segment. Then, under Pellegrini, it was possible to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League but now this is a club that had a temporary administration a year ago and sold players in order to survive. Against this background, 18th place was already an achievement - at least they did not fly out of the Segunda. Having recruited a new batch of free agents and rented Fran Sol from Dynamo Kyiv, Malaga began a new championship. But for starters, they lost 0-1 on the road to Burgos.

Las Palmas reminded of itself last season, but it was not enough. The “Canaries” were finally able to draw not at the usual level of the middle peasants of the division, but to aim for something more. A direct ticket still remained unattainable, but 70 points allowed me to climb to 4th place. True, this was followed by a defeat in the first round of the playoffs, and to the neighbor, Tenerife. After that, Pepe Mel left the project. He was replaced by Javier Garcia Pimienta, an experienced specialist, who worked in the structure of Barcelona. He got a fairly noticeably updated composition. A dozen players were released, including the once very promising Hese, who went to Turkey's Ankaraguca. There are also some interesting newcomers. Vitolo came on loan from Atlético Madrid, as free agents they signed the most experienced center back of Sydney and a graduate of Barcelona, Marc Cardona. As a result, in the new temporade, it turned out to start with a goalless draw at home with Zaragoza.
The clubs exchanged 2-1 home wins last season. Before that, they had a rather long draw streak: 5 times in a row they strictly shared points. In the 1st round, the teams scored nothing in their matches and conceded only 1 goal. We recommend betting on "total under 2.5".
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
