Málaga CF continues to have a serious problem with injuries. A major setback that is weighing down the team in the last few games and it is preventing Sergio Pellicer from having all his weapons to face some of the most powerful rivals in Group II of Primera RFEF. Three days before Alcoyano’s visit to La Rosaleda, up to four fundamental pieces of the midfield were once again absent from training along with the rest of the group.
Málaga CF’s midfield is currently on pins and needles. The field line that, a priori, was the most powerful of the squad has been affected by a plague of injuries which makes it have few variants. Without going any further, just like in the last games, The only pure midfielders in the first team who are at 100% are Genaro Rodríguez and Dani Lorenzowhich once again point to ownership in the absence of alternatives.
The list of casualties in the midfield is extensive. Ramon He continues with his progressive reincorporation and still has a few weeks left to be able to enter the call. And although the club hoped to be able to recover some of the injured throughout this week, The truth is that the days go by, the next commitment is approaching and none of them appear on the grass to exercise with the rest of the healthy people.
Luca Sangalli has been absent for four games now; Manu Molina, three; and Juanpe, two others. And everything indicates that this Saturday against Alcoyano they will not be able to be under the command of Sergio Pellicer either. And furthermore, to further undermine the squad’s possibilities, Izan Merino is playing in the U-17 World Cup with the national team.
With this terrible outlook, and with no signs of a recovery three days before the game, Pellicer has few alternatives to configure his midfield. Genaro Rodríguez, Dani Lorenzo and relocate David Larrubia to more interior positions, as in the visit to Ibizaare the only options that the blue and white coach will have again to configure the average.
Juande remains on the sidelines
In defense there is also a significant loss, that of Juande Rivas, who also continues to advance in his recovery process. The youth player still has several weeks left to reappear. Fortunately, Einar Galilea returns after serving a suspension and that will increase Sergio Pellicer’s chances in the center of the defense. With Nélson Monte as a regular, the coach already has the Basque centre-back, Diego Murillo – a starter in Can Misses – and Moussa – already at full capacity – to choose the Portuguese’s partner in Saturday’s duel against Alcoyano.
