Numancia – Málaga SOCCER PICKS
We need 60 or more points for cards. Yellow 10 points, red 25 points and maximum are 35 points per player.
– Important match for both teams, who need points for different goals. The Numancia continues in the fight to avoid the descent although now they have 8 cushion points. This game could give them a very important push towards the goal or if they lose it they will return to suffering.
Málaga is 5th with 50 points. They arrive in bad dynamics, after 3 games without winning and after the painful defeat against Osasuna in the Rosaleda last weekend, where they let themselves be traced. They still have to add the 3 points of the games vs Reus so they are still fighting for the first 2 positions of direct promotion and they also have to ensure a minimum playoff position.
– Numancia has a 2nd average of 2.48 yellows and 0.21 reds per game. How local down to 2 yellow and 0.14 red per game. On the other hand, Málaga is the third most-rewarded of the league with averages of 3.1 yellows and 0.21 own reds per game. In his away games he averages 3.07 yellows and 0.14 reds per game.
– Numancia data surely remain something fair but I’ve been several days watching Numancia games with cards. Reviewing his last encounters we see that he has a balance for this line of 5 hits in his last 6 games in 2nd, being the under with referee very little card. In the last 3 in Los Pajaritos we have 3 hits. The Sorianos have contributed many cards of their own to these last matches, averaging 3.5 cards of their own in their last 6 games.
– The referee will be Gorka Sagües Oscoz, who is the referee who has shown the most cards this season in 2nd, accumulating 94 yellows and 6 reds in 15 appearances. Has a balance for this line of 11 hits and 4 failures this season in 2nd Division.
