Nottingham Forest 17/10 to beat Malaga in Mondays friendly matchup
Market: Nottingham Forest win
Odds: 17/10 @ Bet 365
Two sides that will be looking to start their pre-season preparations with a win, Championship side Nottingham Forest will travel to the Estadio La Rosaleda to face off against Malaga in Monday’s friendly matchup.
Starting with the hosts, after an abysmal season in La Liga year, Malaga will now be playing their football in the Segunda division and few see The Blue and Whites bouncing back anytime soon. After 38 games last season, Malaga won just five, drawing five and losing 28, scoring 24 and conceding 61 in return, the hosts held the joint worst attacking stats in the division. With a points tally of 20, not only did they finish rock-bottom, they finished 24 points adrift of safety. With many key players leaving the Estadio La Rosaleda this summer, we believe Monday morning will be to much for a side who have not played in over two months.
As for the visitors, although the Championship side spent the majority of last season battling it out at the foot of the table, The Reds have invested heavily in their squad and are aiming for the playoffs this time around. After 46 games, Forest won 15, drawn eight and lost 23, scoring 51 and conceding 65 in return, finishing their Championship campaign in 17th. Although they are coming off the back of a loss in their opening appearance of their Spanish pre-season tour, we are backing Nottingham Forest to come out on top at 17/10.
