Numancia vs Malaga (By: Stanioooo)
Numancia will host Malaga in the 30th round of La Liga 2 in Spain.
Numancia are 14th in the table, 5 points above the last relegated team in Segunda Division, but also with 2 games less than Extremadura, so the chances to be relegated are still out of their minds. On the other side is Malaga,a team still looking for direct promotion in La Liga. They are 7 points behind the 2nd placed Granada with a chance to shorten the distance to 3 points after this match.On the other side it's still not sure that the team will finish in top 6 as the teams there are very close as points to each other, so every point maybe the golden one which will give you direct promotion or will qualify your team for the play-offs.
Numancia stats when playing at home are 7W-2D-5L, while Malaga's stats as visitors are 5W-5D-4L. What needs to be marked in Malaga's recent performances is that the team plays very well as guests in the latest months having 3 wins and 3 draws in the last six away matches. 2 of these 3 wins came against the teams which are just behind Numancia in the table(Zaragoza and Majadahonda).
H2H this season Malaga earned a good home win with 2:0 against Numancia, while they also have two recent matches in the cup during the last season. We know in these games most of the teams use mix of main players and also ones with less time during the season. In Numancia the hosts took a lucky 2:1 win after two goals for them in the 93rd and 95th minutes, while in the next game it finished 1:1.
Numancia will be without Luis Gustavo(6/0 midfielder)- suspended+ Marc Mateu(22/1 midfielder) and maybe the biggest loss for the team Alain Oyarzun(23/3 forward)- he is very dangerous on the wing of the attack and also had 8 assists, but was injured in the last game against Tenerife. Malaga will miss Juan Carlos(4/1 defender), Miguel Torres(0/0 defender), Lacen(11/0 midfielder), Javi Ontiveros(21/1 midfielder), Kone(6/2 forward) and Dani Pacheco(19/0 forward).
What I expect in this match is the good performances of the visitors away from home to continue and maybe the best options here are X2 or 2(DNB). You can try them if you want to go little bit safer. I don't see Numancia to win here without maybe their most important player in attack. Also the motivation should be higher in Malaga's squad as their main target is still the 2nd place and direct promotion to La Liga, while Numancia are nowhere in the table without chances for promotion, but also with very little chances for relegation. The odds are very close for every single outcome of this game, but I have a feeling this one will end with an away win with one goal difference for Malaga.
