Not many clubs get to a confortable position like Real Madrid, who need just a point to clinch La Liga but clearly they will want more than that to avoid what would be nail-biting conclusion to this game. They are unlikely to have this all their own way though with Malaga in fantastic form and looking as good as they have done all season. At the very least we should see a properly competitive game of football which isn’t always the case on the final day in La Liga when one team has nothing to play for.
Real Madrid edged a 2-1 home win over Malaga earlier in the season, and that extended their unbeaten streak of form against them to eight matches (W5 D3). They were held to a draw out in Malaga last season but that would be enough for them. Malaga start the weekend down in 11th in the league and they are on a five-match unbeaten streak of form (W4 D1) so are running well at the moment. At home this season they have gone W10 D2 L6 and they have won their last four on the bounce on home soil as well, and one of those victories was a 2-0 success over Barcelona. So there is just a hint of a threat there from them if Real Madrid don’t turn up and handle the pressure. Real Madrid though have only lost once in their 15 La Liga games against Malaga CF at La Rosaleda (W9, D5).
Real Madrid are away from home but that doesn’t look to be a concern for them with the title in their grasp and this will be their first La Liga title since 2011/12 if they collect it this season.

16 games is Real Madrid’s longest run without a loss, and they deserve the title of top betting contenders. Scoring 2.81 goals per game is also a great achievement and it looks much more solid compared to the average of 1.32 goals of Malaga. Their longest run without a loss is 5 games.
Malaga have actually picked up just the two losses in their last four at home against Real Madrid. Will they be able to stop Real from winning the league? They only need to collect a point in this away game to wrap up the league title before having to concentrate on trying to win the UEFA Champions League.
Real Madrid are still strong favourites to win the game but it’s likely to be a tougher test than the one they faced from a tired Celta Vigo side in midweek. With just 1 clean sheet in their last 12 away league games, there’s strong reason to think Los Blancos will concede at least once in this game and it’s hard to see them going goal crazy themselves against an improved Malaga defence.
Malaga have had nothing really at stake for a while now but they’ve still found the motivation to deliver better results than they had been doing. This should be enough to make a solid bet in this La Liga match. Sign up at BetRegal.com
