Numancia Prediction

Numancia sit in 14th place in La Liga 2 and hold a useful eight point cushion ahead of the relegation zone prior to Monday night’s encounter with high-flying Malaga, and the hosts have managed just one win from their last five matches overall in the Spanish second tier.

That win came in a 1-0 victory away at Extremdura, but recent defeats to Almeria and Sporting Gijon along with draws against Osasuna and Tenerife have prevented the hosts from lifting themselves up into the top half of La Liga 2.

Numancia’s progress at their Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos has also been sporadic as they possess an inconsistent looking home record of 7-2-5 21/15, and although the hosts have recorded back-to-back wins against Coroba and Lugo, they’ve also tasted defeat on a regular basis too.

Indeed, Numancia are tied with Real Zaragoza, Rayo Majadahonda and Lugo for the most defeats at home in La Liga 2 of all the teams that aren’t in the bottom four of the division.


Key-Facts – Numancia v Malaga

  • Numancia have lost the most games at home of teams outside the relegation zone
  • Malaga have lost just 1 of their last 9 matches overall in La Liga 2
  • Malaga are unbeaten in their last 6 away matches in La Liga 2


Malaga Prediction

Malaga lost last time out in La Liga 2 when they suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to league leaders, Osasuna, so the visitors will be keen to return to winning ways against an inconsistent outfit such as Numancia on Monday night.

That loss to Osasuna was Malaga’s only defeat out of their last nine matches overall in the Spanish second tier as the visitors have beaten the likes of Real Zaragoza, Lugo and Rayo Majadahonda as well as picking up points in draws with Tenerife, Almeria, Las Palmas, Deportivo la Coruna and Cordoba.

Malaga have also been hard to beat away from home too as the visitors have put together a six-match sequence without defeat on their travels amidst an overall away record of 5-5-4 13/12 which puts their current solid results on the road into perspective.

Another three points for Malaga here would see them move level on 53 points with 3rd placed Albacete, so there’s plenty of incentive for Malaga to press for a result at Numancia in this Monday night clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

As mentioned earlier, Numancia have an inconsistent streak in them, particularly at home and a solid travelling Malaga outfit could well exploit any slip-ups the hosts make in this encounter.
