To take into account:

  • Málaga CF’s fifth match against UD Las Palmas in the Canary Islands in the First Division. The third time MCF will play in the elite at Estadio Gran Canaria (the first two times were at the historic Estadio Insular).
  • UD Las Palmas and Málaga CF have locked horns in the Second Division (3 times) and Second Division B (on one occasion, when the Club was named Atlético Malagueño).
  • Chory, sent off in the last match, will be absent due to sanction. Luis Hernández and Adrián, with 4 yellow cards, are on the brink of sanction.
  • In the case of a draw or victory, José González will become the first Málaga CF coach to remain unbeaten in their first 3 games as Blue and Whites’ manager in the First Division.
  • Málaga CF, on matchday 22 of the past 16 seasons in the First Division, obtained 5 victories, 6 draws and 5 defeats.


Latest winter signings

  • Lestienne is the first Belgian player in history to defend the Blue and White jersey.
  • Lacen will return to coincide with Miguel Torres, after both were part of Getafe CF, in which the latest winter reinforcement occupies 7th place in matches played in the First Division.
  • For the second time, there will be two players from the same African country on the Málaga CF squad, following the signings of Ideye and Success. In the 2000/01 season, Awule Quaye and Arriki Owusu, from Ghana, coincided, although the latter didn’t have a place on the first team.
