There is almost nothing these two teams can do to stop themselves from playing this fixture the next time in the Segunda division as they have just 37 points between them this season, we still believe in miracles though.
Depor are the form and position favourites going into this clash and a win here would help them close the gap with 17th placed Levante to 5 points, however, that may still not happen as they have not won any of their last 15 games and they still have no wins under their current manager, Clarence Seedorf.
Malaga know that With 8 games to go, they would need to more than double the 17 points they currently have before they can stay out of the relegation zone. That is very unlikely at the moment even though they secured a shock win over Villarreal last weekend except they can build on that and hope that other results goes their way.
Malaga have lost 80% of their away games this season, they have the worst away record in the league as well as the worst goalscoring record in the La Liga.
Depor have been doing better defensively recently as can be confirmed by their 1-0 loss at Atletico Madrid the last time.
