Malaga enters in this match after an away defeat against Oviedo last weekend and has continued a five-match winless streak. They are in the bottom half of the table but without the danger of entering in the relegation battle. They have a lot of injury problems, so coach Garcia can’t count on Enriquez (28/2), Munoz (27/5), Chavarria (21/4), Benkhemassa (20/0), Calero (18/1), and Sa 18/0). Girona reached its fifth consecutive win at home last weekend against rivals for the playoffs Gijon. That win means they are in a very strong position to finish among the top six teams and secure a place in the playoffs. Given that form, it is likely that they will continue a great performance against Malaga who is not in form and has nothing to play for until the end of the season.
