MAG vs ESL Probable Playing 11:

MAG (Probable 11) –

Jimenez (GK), Gonzalez, Baysse, Hernandez, Rosales, Keko, Recio, Iturra, Castro, Penaranda, Baston

ESL (Probable 11) –

Lopez (GK), Lopez, Hermoso, Duarte, Martin, Fuego, Lopez, Baptistao, Darder, Garcia, Moreno


Team News:


  • Roberto Rosales returns from suspension for the home side and will slot straight back in at right-back.
  • Adrian is still serving the second game of his two-match ban, which means that Manuel Iturra may start in central midfield.
  • Diego Rolan has an Achilles problem, which should see Borja Baston lead the line with Adalberto Penaranda.


  • Oscar Duarte should be fit to start at centre-back after shaking off a knee problem.
  • Javi Lopez should continue at right-back for Espanyol, despite Victor Sanchez returning from a ban.
  • David Lopez will maintain his place in midfield, which should free Sergi Darder to have more creative influence further forward.



*Key players:

(IndiaFantasy suggests picking equal players from both the teams   )

(GK) Jimenez (MAG)

(RB) Rosales (MAG)

(LW) Castro (MAG)

(ST) Moreno (ESL)

(RAM) Baptistao (ESL)

(RB) Javi Lopez (ESL)

*(The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performance in their last match)


IndiaFantasy Prediction:

Malaga lost their last two La Liga games before the close of the year, with Michel still managing to get the backing of the club’s chiefs. The home side have turned things around a little at La Rosaleda in recent weeks, but anything less than three points isn’t enough given the relegation battle that Los Boquerones find themselves in.

Espanyol have won just one of their last five competitive games, with Quique Sanchez Flores under pressure to strike up some consistent form.
