Valencia CF will be looking to get back to winning ways on the road against Málaga CF on Saturday at La Rosaleda at 8.45pm kick-off time in order to hold a tight grip on tight grip on the third place and stay in the higher reaches of LaLiga.
Following Marcelino’s side derby win over Levante UD which saw them get back to winning ways at home, they are chasing back-to-back wins against the rock bottom side in LaLiga. The reverse fixture (5-0) will have little bearing with Saturday’s clash because Málaga CF brought in up to eight new players in the winter transfer window.
Valencia CF boss, Marcelino, will not have Garay, Andreas or Kondogbia available through injury and will have to wait until the very last minute to include Murillo who was back in the 19-man match day squad after three months out injured. Marcelino will set up a competitive squad to get back to winning ways on the road and take another step forward in their great aim which is no other than finishing as high as possible in the LaLiga table at the end of the season.
