This is a match up between two tables desperately trying to escape the bottom fourth of the table. Malaga sits in 16th place with 10 points and has the advantage as the home team. Real Betis is sitting in 18th place with 9 points just inside the relegation zone. For Malaga striker Roque Santa Cruz it is a chance to get some revenge on his former club.
“Playing against your former team always makes for a special match. We’re really looking forward to playing at home on Sunday and giving our fans a long-awaited win,” Santa Cruz said, via ESPN FC. ”Betis aren’t going to change their style of play or their philosophy for this game.
“We’ll be up against the same strong team they’ve always been, and although we’re expecting a difficult match this weekend, we’re prepared to win. It’s vital that we concentrate on our job on Sunday. It’s going to be a classic derby match and we’re confident we can keep the three points at La Rosaleda.”
