The hosts have been exceptional in attack and they are quite a force with their new manager Michel who took charge of the club back in March.Malaga will be thrilled to know that they have notched up 13 goals in their last 5 matches.
Malaga’s record at home has been very impressive as they have won 4 matches on the trot and also managed to see off Barcelona in April.
Real Madrid has been dominant in front of goal and after the loss against arch-rivals Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu, this dominance has turned into brutality. They destroyed Celta and Sevilla’s defence and both matches ended with the same scoreline of 4-1 in Madrid’s favour.So now Malaga stand in between of the Los Blancos and the La Liga title, Zidane’s men just need to avoid defeat at the La Rosadela to secure their 33rd La Liga title.

Head to Head
Barca’s chances of lifting the trophy could hardly be slimmer if we know that Malaga only managed to pick up a single win in 33 H2H encounters with Real Madrid.
However, Los Blancos slipped up against the Boquerones twice in last 3 matches. The last meeting at Santiago Bernabeu has seen a narrow 2-1 win for Real Madrid.
