Fuenlabrada vs Malaga Preview

Fuenlabrada’s first ever season in the Spanish second tier has been something of a dream so far. They’ve only lost 5 out of 23 games to date and are currently in a play-off position which puts them at least in the frame to replicate Mallorca’s achievement last season by securing back-to-back promotions. Malaga meanwhile have had a disastrous campaign on many levels but have at least started to pick up a few results in recent weeks.

They take on a Fuenlabrada team that currently can’t stop drawing. All of their last five matches in the Segunda have ended all square following a shock win over league leaders Cadiz in early December. They have managed to turn the tiny Estadio Fernando Torres into something of a fortress which has been key to their success this term with only one team so far leaving with maximum points. However almost all of Fuenla’s home league games have been tight with only 1 of their 11 home fixtures being settled by more than a single goal.

Malaga meanwhile are recovering from the storm that was the bizarre circumstances that led to the departure of coach Víctor Sánchez last week. It came just as Malaga looked to be turning a corner following a terrible start to the season and the Andalusians remain unbeaten in 7 games heading into this one in the league. The most recent was overseen by caretaker boss Sergio Pellicer and it produced a 1-0 win over Ponferradina, a decent response to what must have been a challenging week for all connected with Malaga.


Fuenlabrada vs Malaga Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

This game has draw written all over it. Fuenla have drawn their last 5 league games while Malaga have drawn 5 of their last 7. In many respects, it could be a typical Segunda game with little to choose between the sides and a fixture you might have fancied Fuenla to win a couple of months ago, now looks considerably tougher for the South Madrid outfit given the improvements we have seen from Malaga. We are going for a 1-1 draw.
