Málaga is doing a disastrous campaign in the Spanish Championship, is already downgraded and comes to this last round just to meet schedule, trying to finish the league with a victory, to give some joy to their fans, who suffered a lot this season. The local team presents great problems, both in the offensive and defensive sector, as they scored only 24 goals, being the worst attack of the national championship, and suffered 60 goals, with the third worst defense. These numbers help explain performance below what was expected. Playing at home, as in this Saturday’s game, Málaga lost 6 of the last 8 matches they played, has the second worst campaign at home and is the team that scored the least in this type of situation, creating few goal opportunities and even leaving many spaces in his defense. For the clash with Getafe, coach Jose Gonzalez will not be able to count on Miquel and midfielder Rosales, both on account of a suspension.

Getafe is making a reasonable campaign in the Spanish league, will end the competition in the top half of the standings and arrives at the latter game only to meet the calendar, since it has no chance of reaching the qualifying zone for the next Europa League. The visiting team is characterized by a somewhat inefficient attack, which scored only 41 goals and is the seventh worst in La Liga, while the defense, on the other hand, suffered only 33 goals and is the third best, being a team that creates few opportunities, but that is very solid defensively, where he leaves very few spaces, counting on help in the defensive marking of the midfielders and the laterals. The Getafe comes from 3 consecutive victories, in which suffered only one goal, so much that it has the third best defense in the condition of visitor, but on the other hand it is the third team that suffered fewer goals in this type of situation. For the game against Málaga, coach José Bordalás must repeat the starting eleven he had been using in recent days, as his injured athletes will not recover in time to be available for the farewell of the season.
