Guede’s numbers: two wins in 10 games

The Argentine Pablo Guede arrived at the address of the Malaga CF last April in an attempt to revive the squad and with a very clear objective: save the team from relegation. Despite the defeat against Burgos, the permanence came on the penultimate day of the 21/22 season, but the resurgence… nothing. The technician adds a pretty lousy stats in the 10 games he has played leading the Martiricos team. Two wins, two draws and six losses.

Guede played his first game as Malaguista coach on April 9, where he did not disappoint the fans himself with a draw against him Royal Valladolid (2-2) in The Rose Garden, but he excited before in a team that is now in First. After this meeting, the Argentine achieved his first victory on April 16 at the Municipal Stadium of Butarque, against CD Leganés, with a 0-3 that encouraged good feelings to the Malaguistas. So after two very good clashes, at least none of which was a defeat, Guede’s new Málaga CF had certain expectations. Finally.

But expectations were useless. Another match at La Rosaleda against Eibar (April 23). The Eibar team scored three goals as a visitor -two of them were from Fran Sol-, while the Blue and Whites only responded with one. first loss of the ‘was Guede’ in the rose garden down 1-3. It was useless for the locals to start scoring in the 4th minute of the game.

April ended with another defeat against the palms2-1 at the Gran Canaria Stadium. The Blue and Whites scored their only goal in the 85′, five minutes from the end. Although May started with a bit of encouragement, despite being with a tie. Málaga CF equalized the score at zero at home against Real Oviedo. And that encouragement continued… with a good result for the malaguistas in the Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez with a 0-2 in favor against him Tenerife, with goals from Álvaro Vadillo in the 8th minute and another from Aleix Febas in the 48th minute of the match. A meeting that was sentenced three minutes after whistling the start of the second half and with which a large part of salvation came.

And so it was, since that May 15 in the Canary Islands, as Guede’s men have not won again, neither at La Rosaleda, nor as visitors. 0-1 against him Burgos at home (May 21); 1-0 against him Lugo (May 28); 1-0 again against Burgos (August 14) and 0-4 against Las Palmas (August 22nd). four consecutive losses, although two are from the last 2021/2022 campaign.

Guede’s good games can be counted on the fingers of your hands (and you have plenty). 0-3 against Leganés and 0-2 against Tenerife -with very good football-, both matches as visitors. Although it could also be highlighted, perhaps a bit as a gift, the 2-2 against Real Valladolid at La Rosaleda.

The Argentinian they haven’t won a single game at home, Malaguista fans are devastated, helpless… since when have they not seen their team win at La Rosaleda? Well, nothing more, and nothing less, than from the past November 20, 2021, 2-1 against UD Las Palmas with goals from Antoñín (30′) and Sekou Gassama (86′), although this was not Guede’s competition.

Málaga CF needs to win, re-engage their fans. The 15 th of May is set as the date of last victory of the Blue and Whites and after that they accumulate four defeats in LaLiga Smartbank, albeit in two different seasons. Guede’s stats so far, as stated, leave a lot to be desired: 60% losses, 20% draws and 20% wins. After the debacle against UD Las Palmas in the last match, he himself stands out as the main culprit, but Málaga CF You don’t just need a culprit. You need action. And the malaguistas, too.
