Malaga vs Real Madrid

Spain La Liga – Round 32

15/04/2018

 

Malaga will be seeking to improve on their 3 – 2 defeat to Deportivo de La Coruna last time out, a result that means they are still rooted to the bottom of the table. Real Madrid seeks better fortune here having been slightly unfortunate not to have beaten Atletico de Madrid last time out. A convincing win for Real Madrid is expected, with over 2.5 goals in the game value to be a natural extension.
