Fabricio is the only player that remains out, though Manuel Pablo and Oriol Riera are facing physical problems. Malaga CF are having big difficulties with the injuries and therefore had poor results in recent games.

Goalkeeper Fabricio Agosto (knee) is the only player that will miss the visit to Málaga CF (La Rosaleda, Saturday, 22h05 CET). The Canarian remains training apart from the group and it isn’t certain when he could be back.

After suffering a knee injury in the last friendly of the season, Fabricio was about to return at the end of September, but his knee started to swell. The doctors believe that the reason was that the bound wasn’t heal, so they decided to keep him sidelined and there’s no certain date for his return.

Other two players have faced physical problems during this week, striker Oriol Riera didn’t train in the first session on Wednesday after picking a knock during the game against Athletic Club, but in the afternoon he was already fine, while right-back Manuel Pablo was having muscle problems that sidelined him from Wednesday’s double session.

Left-back/winger Luisinho, who has skipped the last two games, is available for coach Víctor Sánchez, same case than centre-back Alberto Lopo, who was rested on Wednesday due to precaution. Uruguayan forward Jonathan Rodríguez is pushing for a recall after arriving late on last week due to the international action.

At Málaga CF, the team coached by Javi Gracia needs to start winning after losing three of the last five games. The Andalusians continue to be affected by key injuries. Striker Roque Santa Cruz was expected to be finally fit to play after spending three months on the sidelines due to a thigh problem. But he didn’t train on Wednesday and now it’s expected that he will be out for more time

The only good news is that left-back Arthur Boka is back after surpassing a Soleus injury. Meanwhile, centre midfielder Ignacio Camacho returned against Valencia CF after needing surgery due to a groin problem.

But at Mestalla the Andalusians lost centre-back Marcos Angeleri, who suffered a wrist fracture that will keep him at the stand for a month. The Argentine had played all the possible minutes until he was replaced. Another key casualty for them is playmaker Nordim Amrabat, who suffered a knee injury against Real Madrid that will keep him at bay until January. At the same time centre midfielder Juanpi is doubtful for Saturday due to a muscle problem. AC Milan loanee Hachim Mastour is also out as the club hasn’t been able to inscribe him yet for been a minor.
