Fernando Torres once again provided another opportunity for his people to break their tie dynamics, five in a row. However, Blue Technician Mere makes a more positive reading: “It’s five dates without losing in a very demanding competition.” The glass half full or half empty. Malaga, rival of the blue team, is undergoing a bittersweet transition. Following Victor’s dismissal, Pellicer, his replacement, made his debut with victory.
To break this cold streak, Mere will not be able to count on Glauder and Hugo Fraile, due to card accumulation. José León, multi-purpose defense, stands as the leading candidate for Replace To Glauder on the left-back. While Ibán Salvador will take the place of Hugo Fraile on the far right.
On the other hand the blues will be able to count on the striker Caye Quintana, recently signed from Cadiz and who already saw a door before the Malagasy with the cadists, and José Fran recovered from his injury. It doesn’t look like they’re going to be on the starting team, but Mere is expected to give them minutes to catch up.
Unbelievable as it may seem, Malaga has been without losing for seven days. Five draws and two wins who have given him eleven points out of 21 possible that keep him, for the time being, out of the descent. Second followed as interim coach (provisional euphemism) by Sergio Pellicer, which debuted last Tuesday with suffering victory against Ponferradina.
Even under the aftermath of the outrageous disciplinary dismissal of the previous coach, Victor Sánchez del Amo, decreed by Al Thani and executed by his liquidator, US CEO Richard Shaheen, Pellicer tries to make the dressing room only talk of football as he tries to balance the casualties by Mikel Villanueva, Adrian, Keidi Bare and Lombán. Diego González, who returns after serving sanction, is contested with Juande a position in the center of the defense. Try Malaga against a less fiery but tough Fuen.
