Málaga form and stats

Málaga have played 16 La Liga 2 games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 4-6-6 (wins-draws-losses).

It's back home for Málaga, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Lugo away with the result 1-0. Stefan Šćepović found the net in that victory. Before that game, the home loss against Almeria with the scoreline 0-3.

The victory against Lugo came after Stefan Šćepović's winning goal. The Málaga manager S. Pellicer García was very happy afterwards with the decision to bring on that player in the 63rd minute.

Málaga have scored 14 league goals here from 16 matches, not a lot. 19 goals have been conceded.

Albacete form and stats

There's been little loot from Albacete's travels as they have only collected 12 points from 16 away games in the La Liga 2. Albacete, who have the the worst goal difference (-20) in La Liga 2, only have 3 wins to counter their 10 defeats and 3 draws. It's a growing despair in Albacete as they have recorded three consecutive losses. Albacete has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

The attacking players of Albacete have been feeble for some time now, the team not scoring a league goal in the last 202 minutes.

Albacete might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Espanyol proved too strong as Albacete slumped to a 0-3 defeat in front of their own fans at Estadio Carlos Belmonte. A loss against Castellon was the result prior to that, in a home game.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Albacete's away games in the league this season with only 8 goals from 16 matches. As opposed to that, Albacete have seen the ball go into their own net 22 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Albacete - Málaga 1-1 was the story when these teams last met, earlier this season. H2H stats regardless of arena (last nine matches): Málaga two wins, three draws and Albacete four victories. As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four games had two or less.
