With Sevilla one of the top scorers away from home in La Liga, our Spain expert Phil Kitromilides thinks they can score over 1.5 goals against an out of form MalagaThree defeats and a goalless draw from their last four matches have seen Malaga drop perilously close to the relegation zone and Saturday night´s Andalusian derby would be an opportune moment to get back to winning ways.
Sevilla for their part have seen their European charge stall somewhat following three games without a win, but Unai Emery´s side have been playing well and will provide Los Boquerones with a stern test. Paddy Power price a home win at 9/5 (2.80) while Sevilla can be backed at 7/5 (2.40) to record their fourth away win of the season.
Goals at both ends look likely in this game, with both teams to score offered at just 4/6 (1.65) a price that is fractionally too small for consideration.
Instead backing Sevilla to score two goals or more at 6/5 (2.20) looks like being a tempting option.
The side from the capital of Andalusia have been in exceptional scoring form on the road and are the third highest scorers away from home in the league after Barcelona and Real Madrid.
This bet has paid out in five of their last seven league games on the road, and having scored twice at the Camp Nou and three times at the Bernabeu, Sevilla are more than capable of netting twice at La Rosaleda against their struggling rivals.
