Malaga vs Atletico Madrid

La Liga, Spain

Atletico Madrid would look to close the gap on leaders Barcelona when they visit bottom placed Malaga on Saturday. A surprise is least expected as Atletico Madrid have maintained their form in the league pretty well this season managing to stay on the 2nd spot. Malaga, on the other hand, will be on the brink of relegation if they fail to win a point in this game as well.

Expected Winner:

No prizes for making a correct prediction in this one as Diego Simeone’s side will look to continue their chase to the top of the table. A beleaguered Malaga have lost all hopes of battling against relegation after losing 1-0 to the other relegation zone side Las Palmas in their last game. They are least likely to pose any threat to Atletico Madrid on any half of the field. The final scoreline is expected to read 2-0 at least in favour of visitors Atletico Madrid.
