Cordoba will try to change the course of its destiny via clinching a win against Malaga. The squad currently lurks in the relegation zone alongside with Deportivo La Coruna and Athletic Club.

 

The contenders

Cordoba

Cordoba had the opportunity to snatch a win this season when they went against Getafe. Unfortunately, the said opportunity slipped when Getafe snatched a last minute equalizer.

 

The costly mistake did little to stop Albert Ferrer, the squad’s manager, from venting out his disappointment over the match’s result. Ferrer stressed that the team had to pay the price for losing their concentration and intensity during the dying minutes of the match.

 

Malaga

Malaga will be taking its renewed confidence with them when they visit Cordoba in their upcoming match. Just recently, the squad clinched its 2nd victory for this season.

 

With the said win, the club was able to penetrate the top-flight league’s top 10. It currently sits on the 9th spot of the La Liga table.

 

According to its 21-year old midfielder, Juanmi, the club is in a “calmer” state when they visit Cordoba. Such statement presents a good sign since it readily articulates the club’s eagerness to win.

 

Possible head turners

So far, Roque Santa Cruz has been prolific on the pitch. He has been taking more shots lately, which spells good news for the overt favorite of online bookies, Malaga. With him around, the squad is assured that its goal scoring efforts will not be wasted.

Cordoba 1-2 Malaga
