Things are lacking on both ends of the field and it looks like this team has fallen into a pit from which it can’t get out of. They are glued to the last spot and are likely to stay there. Last week they lost to Villarreal by the score of 2-0. Sansone scored both goals for Villarreal in the second half in a span of just eight minutes, thus setting the final score.
Deportivo La Coruna are placed sixteenth at the table and have a negative goal difference of -7. So far in the season, they have gotten three wins two draws and six losses. They are just six points above the relegation zone and they need a win here in order to further distance themselves from it. Last week they played against Atletico Madrid. They were a decent opponent for the team from Madrid and right until the last minutes of the game it looked like they might secure some points. Their hopes were shattered by Thomas who scored late in the stoppage time.

Out of the last six matches that they have played, Malaga have won three games, Deportivo one, and the remaining two ended in a draw. Malaga have won four out of five games against Deportivo at the La Rosaleda.
