Victory for Leganes

Leganes are winless in the last two league outings, but the form of Malaga is substantially poor. So far, home games have been a strong point for Malaga but even that went out of the window following the defeat against Amorebieta. Leganes are playing relatively well and they have confidence on their side. Leganes have also managed four consecutive wins over Malaga going back to 2017.

Total goals over 2.5

The occurrence of high-scoring games has been pretty rare when Leganes and Malaga have met each other with only one taking place in the last five meetings. Malaga’s defensive errors are likely to provide Leganes with a lot of joy. In the last eight league matches, Malaga have witnessed over 2.5 goals in seven games.

Both teams to score – yes

Malaga have conceded a whopping 11 goals in the last six league matches. Leganes might not be the strongest away team in the division with only 11 points from 10 matches, but the team has scored over 1.5 goals in three out of the last five away games.

Malaga vs Leganes: Leganes aiming for a fifth straight win over Malaga

Malaga

Malaga might remain in the mid-table positions even after going winless in away matches so far this season, but there are signs of even the home form letting the team down. Coach José Alberto Lopez will be without Ramon Enriquez and Luiz Munoz due to injury.

Leganes

Mehdi Nafti takes his Leganes team in search of a first victory in three league matches. Despite the dip, Leganes still remain outside the bottom three and this gives a psychological advantage. Fede Vico is the player available for Leganes due to injury, while Bruno Gonzalez is suspended.
