The home side look as good as relegated, ahead of our Malaga vs Valencia CF preview and football odds , whereas the visitors very much have a big chance to hit their objectives come the end of the season.
Malaga have been on one of their worst scoring runs in the last decade, with the appointment of Jose Gonzalez as their latest boss not doing anything to change their fortunes as of yet. After losing to Las Palmas recently, the Andalusian outfit look as good as down already.
Our Malaga vs Valencia CF predictions back the away side to pounce upon the opportunity to get some points on the board, given that Marcelino’s men have struggled to find consistency of late. That makes our La Liga predictions back Los Che to get a much-needed boost of three points.
Valencia CF need to get back on track if they are to nail down third place and a Champions League spot, with Real Madrid currently able to clamber ahead of them if they manage to win their current game in hand.
Valencia’s defensive record has gone out of the window in recent weeks, with injuries at centre back ensuring that Marcelino’s side have really struggled to keep teams at bay. Ezequiel Garay has picked up a recent hamstring problem and that will add even more concerns into the mix for the away side.
William Hill offer the best odds on the away side to win and both teams to find the back of the net, with Los Che definitely in need of three points. However, the fact that they have not managed to keep a clean sheet in their last five away attempts in La Liga shows that they have had difficulty in protecting Neto. With Malaga having brought in offensive reinforcements in January, they should have some luck in front of goal.
Malaga are winless in their last four consecutive home matches in the Spanish top flight, and they have struggled to hit the back of the net in all of them. Most recently, however, they have added Ideye Brown, Isaac Success, and Maxime Lestienne into the mix, with Diego Rolan soon to be back fit again to feature up top. This fresh blood should offer a bit of a threat to a shaky Los Che side.
Our Malaga vs Valencia CF bets back this to be a very tight game, with less than three goals looking very likely. The hosts have failed to score in their last four consecutive league fixtures at La Rosaleda, after firing blanks versus Levante, Real Betis, Espanyol, and Girona. Those four teams set up to frustrate, whereas the away side may be a little more open due to their desperate need of a win.
Unibet offer the best odds on there being less than three goals in this clash, which has been the case in Malaga’s last four home La Liga matches. Their last home contest that saw more than three goals scored came all the way back in November. Valencia, meanwhile, have scored in three of their last four top-flight away outings.
Our Malaga vs Valencia CF betting tips suggest that it will be bad news for the home side once again, with Valencia to take the spoils at their expense. Although Malaga can put up some resistance, they are looking desperately short of the ideas required to win games.
