Malaga has just dropped to Spain’s Second Division. They are doing everything to return to La Liga. And with a better away form than the home side, the La Rosaleda team will be able to beat Numancia to get 3 more points in the race to win the promotion.
With Numancia, they were no longer able to maintain a consistent performance that helped them to join the playoffs for a season to qualify before the 2018/19 season. Numancia is currently only 14th with 35 points. Looking at the fact that they only won 1 match over the last 5 rounds, they also saw the less convincing performance of this team.
Only bringing 1 point from the past 2 rounds, the opportunity to compete for promotion tickets this season by Numancia seems to be out of reach. The distance between them and the top 6 is now up to 13 points.
Malaga is currently ranked fourth in the Second Division, where the play-off status is promoted. They are only 7 points behind the first team, while the tournament has 12 new rounds to finish. Coach Juan Ramon Lopez Muniz has just been appointed to lead Malaga this season, with the task of bringing the team back to La Liga. And Mr. Juan Muniz is doing his job very well.
Juan Muniz built Malaga not really booming but very solid. Despite being ranked fourth on the Rankings, Malaga is the second most defending team in the tournament. After 29 first rounds, the new Malaga defense conceded 21 goals, an average of only 0.72 goals per game.
Marching to Numancia’s stadium, Malaga are desperate for a victory to regain confidence after a series of 3 consecutive draws and losses. In fact, this is not a difficult task because from the beginning of the season Malaga played not badly on away field.
