Real Madrid – Málaga (La Liga)

After trashing APOEL in Cyprus, Real Madrid returns to the Santiago Bernabéu where they will be face to face with Malaga, in a match to count for Matchday 13 of the La Liga. After a 0-0 draw in the Madrid derby, the Merengues traveled to Cyprus where they trashed APOEL by 6-0, with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema getting in the scoresheet. Malaga, on their turn, are showing signs of improvement and finally left the bottom of the table, but they will need to continue getting points since they are still 4 points adrift of safety zone.

Real Madrid are 3rd in the league table with 24 points, result of 7 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, with 22 goals scored and 9 goals conceded. Los Blancos are far from being in the same great form they have shown last season and are, by this time, already out of the race for defending the champion title, watching Barcelona at the top of the table with a 10 point advantage. Having said that, it is more than obligatory for the Merengues to overcome this bad moment, having already started showing improvements in the defensive organization by not conceding goals in the last 3 consecutive games, and also arrive here motivated after trashing APOEL by 6-0 in the Champions League, a game where Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema returned to scoring ways, with each player netting twice.

From the 6 home matches played in La Liga, the Merengues have won 3, losing only 1, with those 3 victories being in the last 3 consecutive matches, against Espanyol, Eibar and Las Palmas. It is important that Zidane can inspire his players to take advantage of their motivation and confidence from the victory over APOEL, and put all their quality on the pitch here as well. However, it is important that without Sergio Ramos and Nacho, the team will be weakened at the back.

In their last 5 official matches, Real Madrid have a record of 2 victories, 1 draw and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-1 defeat against Girona. This result was followed by a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham, for the Champions League, a 3-0 win against Las Palmas, a 0-0 draw against Atletico Madrid, and in their last match, a 0-6 win over APOEL, for the Champions League. Sergio Ramos and Bale, both injured, and Nacho, suspended, are out for this match.

Probable Lineup: Casilla – Carvajal, Vallejo, Varane and Marcelo – Casemiro, Modric and Kroos – Isco – Benzema and Ronaldo.

laligaMalaga, on their turn, are 18th in the league table with 7 points, result of 2 victories, 1 draw and 9 defeats, with 9 goals scored and 25 goals conceded. Malaga finally managed to get their first two victories of the season recently, winning 2 of their last 3 matches, over Celta Vigo and Deportivo, losing against Villarreal in the middle, but they will need a lot more than this if they are to escape the relegation zone, being 4 points adrift of safety.

Las Palmas and Alavés are both just 1 point behind this team from the South of Spain. However, the Malaguistas arrive here with an absolutely terrible form as a visitor, losing all of their 6 trips made in La Liga, conceding 13 goals without being able to score any in return. Malaga have a tough mentality, but that might not be enough.

In their last 5 official matches, Malaga have a record of 2 victories and 3 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-0 defeat against Barcelona. This result was followed by a 2-1 defeat against Numancia, for the Copa del Rey, a 2-1 victory over against Celta Vigo, a 2-0 defeat against Villarreal, and in their last match, a 3-2 defeat against Deportivo. Kuzmanovic, Ricca and Torres, all injured, are out for this game,

Probable Lineup: Jiménez – Rosales, Hernández, Baysse and Pérez – González and Recio – Keko, Rolán and Castro – Peñaranda.

Real Madrid won 6 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing the remaining 2.

Real Madrid are motivated after trashing APOEL in Cyprus, and this match at home against Malaga comes in the right moment, providing a good chance to to add another victory and gain more confidence. Malaga have a terrible register as a visitor and are yet to score their first goal away from home. Expect a strong victory from Real Madrid.
