Malaga vs Deportivo La Coruna (By: Dajkula)
Malaga will try to overcome the 4:2 deficit from the first match and, at home, they should have the upper hand. We have already witnessed how key a home support can be in this playoff so the very solid home side is the favorite. Malaga has the 2:1 lead in the first match but they stepped off the gas to soon. Deportivo came out with force in the second half and scored 3 times in a short span. Actually, they haven`t produced plenty of chances but the efficiency was great. Fernandez had a great day scoring twice in that match.
Deportivo was a really tough side to beat this season but their results are obviously poorer on the travels. Their defense has conceded 18 goals in 21 away matches.
Malaga is, since April, under the guidance of the coach Sanchez and they improved greatly. Before they couldn`t win matches to save their lives but that has really changed. Before the playoff, Malaga won 6 of the last 8 matches and they could finally score goals. The goal production has increased a lot and especially convincing Malaga has been in the last 3 home matches scoring 3 goals in each. They surely play more confident now.
Malaga will be without Cifuentes (24/2), Alejo (12/1), Harper (25/4) and N'Diaye (24/5) today.
Deportivo misses Fávio, Luis Alberto, Flávio and Juanpi, as well as Ignacio Camacho but they are not important players.
Deportivo won`t try to attack at any cost and will probably sit back and try to counter-attack. Malaga has nothing to lose and they will be the aggressor. I fancy Malaga`s chanced today.
