Malaga – Atletico Madrid soccer betting picks.
Malaga hosts Atletico Madrid in a 23rd round of the Primera Division. The meeting is on February 10th, at La Rosalace stadium, with the final and second in the standings, so the guests are the big favorite of the victory.
Malaga’s team defeated Las Palmas with a 0-1 win in the last round, standing firmly at the bottom of La Liga, and are likely to play in Segunda Division next season. The hosts have 13 points in their assets and are seven out of the 17th Levante. Malaga is without a win at seven consecutive matches in all the tournaments.
For this period, they lost five of these matches and four of their defeats were minimal. Malaga does not allow many goals, but there are big problems with the score. They only scored three goals in their last nine league games. Facing against Atletico Madrid, who are very good at defending, Malaga’s chances of success in this game are very small.
Madrid visitors scored a very important 1: 0 victory over Valencia last weekend. Thus Atletico consolidated his second place in La Liga and narrowed his lead to Barcelona head nine points. Athletico Madrid won four of his last five away games in the league. During his last visit, Diego Simeone’s graduates beat Aubar 1-0.
They also scored more victories over Deportivo, Levante and Betis, and their only defeat in recent months away from home was 0: 1 against Espanyol. This is actually the only loss of Atletico in the last 23 games away from home in La Liga. In six of his previous seven matches on a foreign field, the team allowed only one goal. Given these statistics, I do not see how Malaga would have hit the “mats” on Saturday, so it’s very likely Atletico to win this match.
