Levante vs Malaga

Spain La Liga – Round 33

19/04/2018

 

A crucial relegation battle at Ciutat de Valencia. Paco Lopez’s side will be seeking to improve on their 3 – 0 defeat to Atletico de Madrid last time out, while Malaga will also be seeking to improve on their 2 – 1 defeat to Real Madrid last time out. With the two sides having defensive frailties, the price for them both to score or a few goals netted represents excellent value.
