In La Liga, the Friday and Monday fixtures don’t turn up as exciting as the other games scattered around the week. Because in such games, we generally watch games between teams who are near the bottom of the table. However, this particular match should be important for Malaga as they have been struggling a lot on the league and looking for a ray of hope. If they win, they may get a hold of themselves.
Espanyol defeated Malaga at home 1-0.That puts much more weight on Malaga mentor Michel, who will definitely try to do well if he wants to keep his job in Malaga a little bit longer. After this match, it will be almost halfway in the season. It means that if Malaga don’t add to their 11 points, they won’t be safe. During a few years, Malaga have sold a lot of their key players but haven’t replaced their places with proper transfers. Probably this is the reason why they are referred as possible contenders to relegation canditates. The fans had generally stayed with their team yet even that began to change. They are a little disappointed with Malaga’s performance. As they are the away side here, it’d be beneficial to look at their away record. It is not promising either, 89% of their games are defeat in La Liga this year. It won’t be enough to go against Getafe.
Getafe deserve to take some credits this season. The team is rather young and their physicality is remarkably good. If they can be able get 3 points out of this match, they have the chance to move up to 8th place. In front of their audience, their performance at home is pretty good with a 56% ratio. The fact that they had hosted the top 6 teams, it is a remarkable ratio for them.
