Malaga – Barcelona 13.01.2013
I expect at least three goals at La Rosaleda.
The hosts are very good, even they are facing with big finance problems. It seems the coach Manuel Pellegrini is doing a miracle. Malaga have three victories in the last three home matches.
As You can see, Malaga strikers have scored 11 goals on the mentioned three games. The good news for Pellegrini is that Diego Buonanotte featured in training on Friday and could make an appearance. However, this match come too soon for Julio Baptista.
What can we say about Barcelona? They are the best team in Europe and they have a 100 percent record on the road this season in Primera. The coach Tito Vilanova will lead the team and I rate this fact as very positive. He has almost all players available with Sergi Roberto as only injury victim. The striker David Villa is rated as doubtful. However, Barcelona key players like Messi, Xavi, Iniesta are ready and that’s most important.
Match: Malaga – Barcelona 21.00h
League: Spain Primera
Our prediction: over 2.5 goals Odds: 1.50
Barcelona is a team that score lot of goals. So far they have scored 61 goal in 18 matches, with an average of more the 3 goals per game. The last 13 Barcelona games in Primera ended with Over 2.5 goals.
At the end I will mention that the last five mutual games between two teams finished with Over 2.5 goals. I expect the tradition to be continued.
