Gimnastic and Malaga to Draw

While Malaga is once again fighting for survival in La Liga 2, Gimnastic is fighting for promotion to that same league. So, the difference between these two teams isn't that big actually.

That being said, Malaga is in good form at the moment and while they are still in the relegation zone, they've recently come much closer to escaping it. Meanwhile, Gimnastic will have the advantage of playing at home, so a draw sounds like the most realistic outcome in this game.

Gimnastic vs Malaga Preview: Recent Form, Team News, and Potential Lineups

We expect to see an exciting and close duel between these two teams, so let's check them both out in more detail now:

Gimnastic

After seventeen rounds in Primera RFEF Group 2, Gimnastic is sitting in the sixth place in the standings, with twenty six points. So, the team is out of the playoff zone right now, but they are also just one point behind the first team in it and just five points behind the team at the top of the league, so they have a good chance to fight for promotion this season.

Gimnastic Predicted Lineup:

Garcia – Oriol, Quintanilla, Montes, Domingo – Montalvo, Gorostidi – Escudero, P. Fernandez, Rey – G. Fernandez

Malaga

Although Malaga remains in the relegation zone in Segunda, they are in good form recently since they have two wins, three draws, and just one loss in the last six games in the league. Thanks to this run, Malaga is now just two points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone, so they can certainly hope to stay up if they can do well in the second half of the season.

Malaga Predicted Lineup:

Yanez – Jimenez, Burgos, Escassi, Ramalho – Rodriguez, Sanchez – Villalba, Febas, Chavarria – Castro

Player to Watch: Ruben Castro

Perhaps it's overreaching to call a player who never played for Spanish national team a legend, but Ruben Castro is, at the very least, a well-known name in Spanish football. The forward who spent his glory days at Real Betis is certainly their legend since he is the team's top goalscorer in history.

Today, Castro is 41 years old, but he's still going strong. As a player with huge experience, he is trying to save Malaga from relegation and while he isn't as prolific and efficient as he used to be, he is still Malaga's top goalscorer in Segunda this season with four goals. So, unless Malaga decides to spare the veteran from strain in Copa del Rey and save him for the league, he will be the player to watch against Gimnastic.

Starting Lineups

Lineups are commonly released one hour before the start of the game.
