Almeria were far from convincing in the recent outing against Ibiza. Even if the team picked up a victory and a clean sheet, it was largely down to the mistakes made by the opponent. Malaga produced an improved performance against Real Zaragoza in the last match. So far this season, home results have been able to provide some respite for Malaga, who will be happy to register even a point from the game.

Total goals under 2.5

The recent win over Ibiza might appear convincing, but Almeria largely relied on the mistakes made by the opponents. There has been just one game in the last five involving Almeria to produce more than 2.5 goals. Malaga have also not been among the goals and the team improved defensively in the recent draw with Real Zaragoza.

Both teams to score – yes

Almeria are aiming to score in a fourth consecutive game against Malaga, who have scored 14 out of their 24 league goals this season in home matches. Almeria tend to be quite poor in away matches, but they could once again get a goal or two as they did against Ibiza.
