Málaga v Las Palmas Betting Tips: Both teams can capitalise going forward at La Rosaleda

Feb 19 2017

Two of La Liga’s out-of-form sides go head-to-head at La Rosaleda on Monday night as Málaga host Las Palmas in a math that both will surely have their eyes on winning.

With just one win between this pair in their last ten combined, it’s fair to say that things haven’t been going to plan for either club of late. However, given their respective records, both are likely to fancy their chances of turning things around here.

The bet that stands out is ‘Both Teams to Score’. Neither Málaga or Las Palmas are the most prolific in La Liga, but both will be able to take comfort in the fact that the other has failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five, and it’s thought that, on this basis, both will have a real go here.

The hosts were unfortunate when main striker Sandro Ramírez got injured five games ago, and this has of course limited their options going forward. However, despite failing to win in the forwards’ absence, Málaga have managed to score in three of their last four and, in playing a side who’ve kept no clean sheets away from home this season, should be capable of doing so again. After all, Marcelo Romero’s men have scored in eight of their last ten league fixtures and, as touched on above, Las Palmas don’t exactly have a back-line that strikes fear into the hearts of many teams, that’s for sure.

The visitors may have struggled defensively on the road, but there’s every chance they can make some attacking headway in this match, even if they have also been below par in that department of late. Quique Setién has now witnessed his side fail to find the back of the net in each of their last two matches, but, with the attacking talent available, this trend isn’t fancied to continue for much longer, especially since Málaga have kept just one clean sheet on home soil so far this season.

The fact that both teams have scored in 60% of Málaga’s home matches this season and in 60% of Las Palmas’ away fixtures also bodes well.

All things considered, when these two meet on Monday night, both front-lines are very much fancied to profit and, therefore, ‘Both Teams to Score’ looks a sound option.
