Tenerife vs Malaga Preview
The late game on Monday night in Spain comes from the Canary Islands. It sees troubled Malaga travel to play Tenerife in a match that will have an impact on the battle to stay in this league with both clubs currently hovering above the relegation zone.
Tenerife are 13th at the time of writing and while that may not sound like a position of immediate danger, they are only 3 points above the relegation zone. Their first game back did not go to plan at all as they lost 1-0 away to a Fuenlabrada side that was without a win since early December. Having approached the restart with hopes of getting into the play-off picture, they will quickly be looking over their shoulder if their wait for a win extends much beyond this game.
Malaga also endured what was basically a nightmare return to action at what is an already very difficult time for the club and their fans off the pitch. They were beaten 3-1 at home by Huesca on Friday with a red card to David Lomban compounding their problems in the 2nd Half. The Andalusians had been in reasonably strong form prior to the break but unquestionably, a side that was within touching distance of a Champions League Semi-Final not so long ago, is now in serious danger of slipping into the Segunda B.
They’ve only won 3 times away all season but can perhaps take some confidence from 7 draws on their travels. Tenerife meanwhile are one of those island teams hoping to find some kind of advantage, even if it is only psychological, from their home games during this period.
