Levante and Malaga are tied at 20 points roughly in the middle of the table. They’re duking it out on Sunday to see who can climb closer to the top of the table with a win.
“A win is fundamental to us,” Malaga captain Weligton told the club’s official website. “We’ve got a difficult away match on Sunday, and following that we’ve got some tough games coming up at the start of the second round.
“However, we’re solely focused on our next match against Levante at the moment, and gaining three important points this weekend.”
Malaga is a little short handed on defense, and that is some source of concern.
“We’re all hoping that our team-mates recover in time for Sunday’s match, as they’re important members of the team. However, if they’re not match-fit in time, the coach has a ‘plan B’ and we’re all ready to get out there and play.”
