Pitchside Europe: Málaga project still awaiting take-off

“Boasting the third-largest budget in La Liga this season (€150 million), the Andalucian club were tipped to become credible rivals to Barcelona and Real Madrid but despite briefly topping the table at the beginning of October, they have failed to put any pressure on the top two. A six-game winless run either side of Christmas saw Manuel Pellegrini’s side slip to 10th in La Liga and although they went into Monday’s trip to neighbours Granada only four points outside the Champions League places, they were only six points above the relegation zone as well.”

    Happy to see Malaga’s step for the future to challenge Real Madrid and Barcelona dominance. With them Valencia and Sevilla we can see a more open title race.
