Malaga -1 -173 risk 3.46
Malaga cost me against Betis but they are at home, facing a team who is looking at relegation and Malaga has to win games like this to qualify for the champions league. Racing Santander hasnt won a game in their last 12 outings, their last win coming back in January. Racings numbers on the road are pretty dismal as well and Malaga has impressive numbers on their own pitch.
Malaga held Madrid to a draw in Madrid just recently and though they are overshadowed by Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga , this is a wealthy team with alot of talent. They pretty much have to win this one to have any real chance to catch that final spot for the champions league, Valencia and Levante now claim third and fourth spots here by a few points and Malagas schedule until the finish of La liga doesnt look easy.
Malaga face Barcelona on May 2nd and Valencia on April 28th, and looking at Levantes and Velencias schedule to round out the season, Malaga has to pick up the points and the win here against weak opponent to have any chance to catch Levante and Valencia and qualify for the champions league.
