Team News

Malaga
Deportivo
  • Recio misses out due to suspension for the home side, after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season last time out.
  • Esteban Rolon should step into midfield as a result, with Michel otherwise not expected to make any changes this weekend.
  • Diego Rolan will be fit enough to feature on the bench, with young centre-back Diego Gonzalez on the road to recovery too.
  • Juanfran misses out due to injury for the away side, which should see Gerard Valentin get a chance at right-back.
  • Ruben is back in contention to start in goal, with Costel Pantilimon not covering himself in any glory in recent weeks.
  • No other changes should be forthcoming from Cristobal, with Depor's performance levels taking a turn for the better of late.

Prediction

  • Malaga have only won one league game this season. With Recio suspended, Juanpi and Adalberto Penaranda will need to inspire some creativity in a side that has failed to score in four of their last five league games.
  • Deportivo have only won one of their last five games, but since Pepe Mel's sacking they have shown some real improvements in a short space of time.
