Tobias Gourlay's week begins in Spain, where he fancies Las Palmas to fly past some seriously depleted opposition
"Malaga have scored just once across the last six rounds of La Liga. Tonight, they are missing both their joint top-scorers"
Las Palmas v Malaga
Monday 20:00 (Live on Sky Sports Football)
Club Brugge 3 Charleroi 3 delivers a point apiece for the Belgians and an easy win for Kev. Which means he's back in the black as rides off into the sunset for another week.
Props to him and props too to Las Palmas, who are about to beat Malaga in tonight's game from Spain. We think.
Second bottom of the La Liga table, Paco Jemez's Las Palmas haven't been great at home this term (W3-D1-L6), but they did win their last game at Gran Canaria Stadium, beating third-placed Valencia 2-1. The Canary islanders are W2-D1-L1 there just recently and we fancy them to find a way past bottom-of-the-table Malaga tonight.
Jose Gonzalez's visitors have scored just once across the last six rounds of La Liga. Tonight, they are missing both their joint top-scorers (Chory Castro and Diego Rolan). Admittedly, the pair only have three league goals each this term, but when you've failed to score in 8/11 on the road anyway (W1-D1-L9), you take anything you can get. In their absence, we're backing Las Palmas to bag three vital points.
