Real Madrid vs Malaga Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 19 in Spanish LaLiga, Real Madrid host Malaga at the Santiago Bernabeu. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Real Madrid vs Malaga.
Real Madrid play very good this season in LaLiga and they are one of the main candidates to win the title. In the previous round they had played very good against Sevilla, but they conceded 2 late goals and lost 2-1. Meanwhile, they have been playing against Celta Vigo in the Quarter-finals of Copa del Rey and lost at home 1-2. Their manager Zinedine Zidane can’t be happy because two lost games in a row, so Real Madrid will be fully motivated to take three points against Malaga and keep the first position. Big blow for home side is the absence of Gareth Bale who is injured, so maybe that could be the reason for Real Madrid’s poor performance. Their top scored Cristiano Ronaldo scored only one goal in the last five games in all competitions and maybe this match could be the good chance for him to get back and start scoring goals.
Home side miss Carvajal (13/0 d), Pepe (8/1 d), Coentrão (1/0 d), Rodríguez (9/1 m) and their second top scorer Gareth Bale (11/5 f). On the other side, visitors will be without Koné (7/0 d) and En-Nesyri (10/1 f), who are both at the African Cup of Nations). Llorente (12/1 d), who is on loan from Real Madrid, can’t play against them is out, while Weligton (1/0 d), Ricca (12/0 d), Torres (12/0 d), Kuzmanović (4/0 m), Charles (7/1 f) and their top scorer Ramírez (17/7 f) are all injured.

Real Madrid vs Malaga Prediction
Home is a big favorite to win this game and stay at the top of the table. On the other side, Malaga have nothing to lose, but they will try to make a surprise or at least to hit the net, but it will be very hard for them because they have many absences for this game. I expect interesting and open match between Real Madrid vs Malaga and many goals.
