The situation in which the Malaga CF This season finale forces him to be aware of third-party results. The blue and white team have to do their part, win their games, and also pray that the teams just ahead of them leave points along the way and the distance with permanence -6 points- is reduced day by day. That is why this weekend, before jumping onto the pitch at El Toralín to face Ponferradina (Sunday, 4:15 p.m.), At the club they will pay special attention to what happens in two other fields, Butarque and the Estadio de La Cerámica.
Málaga is the first of the teams to be in the relegation zone, with 40 points, and above, marking salvation, Villarreal B and Leganés, both with 46. The main condition to be able to overcome this difference is that the blue and white team practically play a full match in the four remaining games (Ponferradina, Mirandés, Alavés and Ibiza), but also he needs his rivals to miss, and the more, the better.
Leganés and Villarreal B play this matchday at home against two teams that until Monday were also in Málaga’s sights. Leganés receives Huesca (Saturday, 6:30 p.m.)a team that added a point at La Rosaleda to stop Pellicer’s team and remain 8 points ahead of relegation. And the yellow subsidiary will play in their stadium against Sporting (Sunday, 2:00 p.m.)which with its victory against Lugo has also placed itself 8 ahead of Málaga.
Despite the great distance -8 points with 12 to play-, Huesca and Sporting still cannot be saved, because Málaga could still reach them, and that precisely plays in favor of the blue and whites. Those from Alto Aragón and the Asturians will go to Leganés and Villarreal, respectively, with the need to add to certify their permanence in LaLigaSmartBankand that is just what the Martiricos team needs.
If Leganés or Villarreal B lose in their commitments this day, Málaga would have the opportunity to be 3 points away from permanence by winning at El Toralín. It could stay at 4 if the stumble of any of them is a tie. Being just one game away from one of these clubs would be wonderful news for the blue and whites, because in addition They have won the particular average goal with both. In any tie on points with people from Castellón or from Madrid, they would come out on top, even in a hypothetical three-way tie.
