Sunday’s clash against Malaga represents a special confrontation for four players: Juan Rodriguez, Munúa, Luque and Adrián; this last one is optimistic after surpassing a knee injury suffered during the pre-season

Despite the defeat of Depor’s first team against Fabril (0-1), the friendly game of Tuesday left positive news for coach Lotina, because Adrian and Lassad are already fit to play. Both participated without problems during the match and were the more dangerous players for Depor, therefore both have solid options of entering into the list of picked player for Sunday’s match against Malaga (17h00 CET).

After the game, striker Adrian explained to the reporters his physical state, "I was feeling fine when I made the exercises during the last training, but in today's game (Vs Fabril) it was a more real test compared to a normal training and I didn't have any problem. If we continue like this and if nothing weird happens, I might be picked for Sunday's game."

About his partnership with Lassad, the Asturian attacker admitted the good understanding that he has with the Tunisian player, “He’s a good player, someone that possesses quality. The important thing is that it seems that we understand each other, because we feel comfortable playing together. We have similar characteristics, because we aren’t central strikers, we are mobile players and can join midfield searching for the ball. I believe that Lassad and I can do good things together.” 

The striker was also admitting that the game against Malaga will be important for him since he will face the team in which he played loaned during the past season, “It’s a special match for me, because I felt really comfortable at Malaga, they treated me really well and I left good friends there. They have changed now, but are keeping good players and it will be difficult for us.”
