Malaga vs Villarreal B Prediction & Match Preview
Malaga vs Villarreal B
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: 24 September 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio La Rosaleda (Malaga).
Malaga were the first team to make a managerial change in the 2022/23 season of Spanish Segunda Division.
The board decided to react after the last weekend’s 3-1 loss at Tenerife, the team’s fifth loss in the opening six games of the new campaign.
Pepe Mel was appointed in the place of the Argentinean manager Pablo Guede and he will be hoping to shift the team’s fortunes around in the next several weeks.
It will be very interesting to see whether Mel can initiate a new-manager bounce and a positive shock on Saturday afternoon when Malaga play host to Villarreal B in Gameweek No 7.
Mel was only appointed on Wednesday and he only had three days to see what he has on disposal.
One man he needs to pay a special attention at and his name is Sergio Lozano. The 23-year-old Spaniard is enjoying a phenomenal spell of form with Villarreal’s second team so far in the season.
Lozano tops the team’s scoring and assisting charts with three goals and deliveries apiece in just five appearances so far in the season.
Villarreal B generally favor attacking-minded football and we should be in for an exciting game at Estadio La Rosaleda.
Each of the last five matches Villarreal’s second team played in this league saw at least three goals scored.
The run includes a 3-1 win over Lugo seven days ago as well as a 4-1 defeat at Levante in the team’s previous away fixture in the league.
Villarreal B have suffered two tough losses in the previous two away outings in Segunda Division. They fell 3-0 at Granada and 4-1 at Levante. However, Malaga lost five of their opening six games of the season and we are not attracted at all by the 2.15 odds offered for their win here.
Instead, we will go with Villarreal B to leave Estadio La Rosaleda undefeated at the odds of 1.66. You can also back goals at both ends at the 1.83 odds knowing how attacking Villarreal B have been at the beginning of the season.
