Malaga lost most of its funding this season and of course with it the best players have left the club, so expectations were not too high for the hosts this year. Despite this, Malaga produced a honorable start to the season and you can find them on 10th place at the moment. Their performances at home have been particularly impressive, Malaga winning 2 games out of three with a goal difference of 7-1, getting beat only by Barca in the 2nd round, 1-0. After all the departures the team was still left with a top class front line that includes Portillo, Roque Santa Cruz and former Ajax and Fiorentina marksman El Hamdaui. The trio scored 7 goals together in La Liga so far.
Osasuna is in a somewhat similar situation to Malaga, with the visitors losing almost their entire first team in the off-season. The problem is that they were already at a rather low level so now they really find themselves unable to cope with the level required in the Primera Division. Osasuna lost 6 out of 7 games so far and do not look likely to improve. A 1-2 defeat at Atletico Madrid two rounds ago showed some signs of better things to come, but immediately Osasuna lost 0-1 at home to Levante in a very poor performance. While Malaga performs very well right now, Osasuna is in a big slump, they actually sacked the manager recently, bringing in former Almeria boss Javi Garcia – but with no change in results.
The hosts are in great form, not losing in the last 5 league games, and they are close to a clean bill of health so Bernd Schuster`s side can approach the match at full strength. Malaga traditionally had tough matches with Osasuna in the last years but my input is that it’s unlikely for history and Head 2 Head results to make a difference today – the teams are totally different with all the squad changes.
