Winning against Cordoba in the last round of Spain's second division, Deportivo finished the season at No. 6 on the standings with 68 points, 4 points higher than Cadiz's seventh place and only inferior to 5th place Mallorca. Thus, Deportivo has officially won tickets to the promotion play-off round. Now they are facing a great opportunity to be able to play in the highest arena in Spain, provided they have to do well in two matches against Malaga.
The recent performance of Deportivo is extremely high. The simple yet tight football style gave them a good match against all opponents in the Spanish 2nd Division. In the last 6 rounds of the tournament, Deportivo lost only 1 match with the minimum score, the remaining 3 wins and 2 draws, in which they kept 4 clean sheets. In the first leg, Deportivo will be playing at home, where they are having 3 consecutive wins, scoring 9 goals and only receiving 1 goal. Therefore, Deportivo needs to take advantage of this advantage to get the best result possible before marching to Malaga's stadium in the second leg.
On the other side, Malaga was one of the top candidates for the promotion to next season but the unstable performance made Malaga could only finish the season in third place with 74 points below Granada top 2 with 5 points. They will have to find their way back to La Liga through the play-off path.
Malaga has found themselves to be persistent and admirable when they show their spirit of excitement and impressive level until the final rounds. Currently, Malaga are having a series of 5 wins, and scored 12 goals. Farther away, Coach Victor Sanchez's army only had just one loss in the last eight appearances. Apparently, Malaga is doing very well and if they continue to maintain this form, the road to the highest tournament of Spain is not far from them.
