Atletico Madrid, one of the new powerhouses of Europe, is one of the teams we’re carefully watching each weekend since they produce consistent results.
They’ve just suffered their first loss of the season against Sevilla, which means the team will have a new incentive to win this time around – and their opponents are Malaga – a midtable team, with a couple of twists.
Atletico Madrid vs Malaga – 29/10/2016
Betting Odds: Atletico 1.22 or 2/9 Draw 6.00 or 5/1 Malaga 15.00 or 14/1
These twists come from the history between the two teams and Malaga’s form this season. If we want to see the latest Malaga win, we have to go way back – to 2011.
Moreover, these wins don’t seem to occur on Atletico’s home ground, especially since the team started to play much better football and win league and trophies.
This season, Malaga has 12 points from 3 wins and 3 draws, but none of the wins happened away from home, where they’ve only scored 3 goals in 4 games. Not a record you want to have when coming to play against Atletico.
Meanwhile, after a 0-1 defeat against Sevilla, Atletico know that they must return to their winning ways quickly if they don’t want to lose contact with the league leaders.
November and December are the months where title challenges are made, and nobody wants to start the new year 6 or 7 points behind, playing each weekend with a knife behind their back. A win is an absolute must for Griezmann and co. in this game.
Atletico Madrid vs Malaga Betting Tips
That’s exactly what we’re going to bet on. Although odds around 1,20 aren’t attractive by any means, we’re going to suggest an Atletico home win.
If you’re feeling particularly bold, go for Atletico -1 or -1,5, since we believe we’ll see quite a few goals from the home team.
Carrasco, Griezmann, and Gameiro are the most likely goalscorers, while it’s very hard to believe that Malaga will score more than once.

Spanish La Liga Predictions And Betting Tips
Slowly but surely, Villarreal has found their place in the top 4 of La Liga, surrounded by much bigger teams. Their current form is nothing short of extraordinary – undefeated after 9 games. On the other hand, Eibar is one of those teams which can produce anything in this league, and they’ve even returned with a point from Bernabeu this season. Can they stop Villarreal at home? Eibar vs Villarreal – 30/10/2016 Betting Odds: Eibar 3.00 or 2/1 Draw 3.20 or 11/5 Villarreal 2.50 or 6/4 Mid-table teams like Eibar are the definition of inconsistency in any league. Just look at their most recent 4 games: Win over Sociedad at home, Draw away at Bernabeu, home loss against Osasuna and…
The last place from La Liga which is guaranteed European participation is currently 6th. Athletic Bilbao is currently the holder of this place and will look to keep it until the end of the league since they’re accustomed to playing in European cups in recent seasons. Meanwhile, Osasuna is looking to avoid relegation – but will they be able to win any points away against Bilbao? Athletic Bilbao vs Osasuna – 30/11/2016 Betting Odds: Athletic Bilbao 1.36 or 4/11 Draw 5.00 or 4/1 Osasuna 8.50 or 15/2 Weird enough, 4 of the 6 points Osasuna have gathered so far come from away games. They scored 11 goals in the first 9 games, not horrible for a newly promoted team, and…
