La Liga Betting Preview - Malaga vs. Getafe

La Liga soccer game in stadium full of fansAs the 2015-16 Euro Soccer moves along the La Liga of Spain has some interesting matches this week and weekend with the 7-9-6 Malaga (10th La Liga-"Bloquerones") taking on the 7-10-5 Getafe F. C. (11th La Liga –"The Azulones") with the game being played at La Rosaleda in the city of Malaga in Andalucia, Spain with the game to kick-off at 2:30 PM ET.

For those that Bet on Soccer at SBG, this Friday’s game will come to viewers from the La Rosaleda Stadium in Malaga, Spain between Getafe and Malaga and there is only 1 point separating the two teams as Malaga is ranked at 10th and Getafe ranked 11th thus it’s likely that this will be a exciting game for the team and fans as well.

Lately Malaga has face consecutive defeats against Barcelona and Sevilla, but this past weekend they turned things around and in the Basque Country defeated SD Eibar (8th La Liga) 2-1. With that win the Malaga team move back to the top half of the league rankings and are set to overcome their rival Getafe in this Friday match-up.

Their star attacker N. Amrabat left the club this past January, but his replacement, a newly signed G. Castro has already taken up the slack, as he and the team made their last game a struggle for Barcelona, but in the end were overpowered by L. Messi and company on their home field at La Rosaleda.

In the coming days the Malaga team has a tough road to hoe as they come up against Valencia, Real Sociedad, Real Madrid and Villarreal and that’s a good reason they may struggle in those games since their players of Angeleri, Juan Carlos and Weligton are all out due to injuries.

The Getafe team also struggled lately after they had a 3 game winning streak over Espanyol, Real Betis and Sporting Gijon. On the 23rd of January 2016 the team lost 3-2 to Granada who ended the teams 7 games win streak, then like could things get worse, yes as Getafe lost to Atletic Bilbao 1 to 0 that next weekend.

The team presently is ranked at 11th in La Liga and only 6 points from the drop zone; they really do not need a loss in this game with Malaga on Friday. A problem not favoring this team is that they are not playing well on away games; therefore a win appears somewhat difficult. We say that because this season to date they have only been victorious 1 time as the visiting team.

On the other side the good news for the fans and the team, is that they have secured a star player from Uruguay in A. Pereira who should help them step up their offensive game beginning this Friday. Also, their coach F. Escriba reports no new injuries for the club preceding this Friday’s match and they should have their best possible roster on the field playing in this game, while newly signed A. Pereira is anxiously awaiting a start on their roster.

Thus we give you a few facts to consider like Malaga in their last 3 games saw 2.5 goals scored on average, and the team is seeking their 5th win at home. On the Getafe side they have given up 10 goals in their last 4 road games while overall have lost seven road games this season.

The sportsbook prediction after viewing all the facts including the consideration of the reinforcements to the Malaga roster in early January 2016 it likely that this game will see the Getafe team suffer a loss at the home field of Malaga.
