Malaga and Granada accuse the lack of punch in preseason

A goalless draw in a pre-season friendly that showed that both teams accused the lack of troops in attack. Escassi and Calero made their debut with the Blue and Whites.


Málaga and Granada added minutes and filming in Marbella in a friendly (0-0) that makes it clear that the pending issue for both teams at this point in the preseason is at the top. Pellicer and Diego Martínez try to build their teams from behind. Finding balance and defensive solidity is the first premise of both coaches. And this friendly made a record of it.

Málaga recovered its drawing with three centrals and Granada had an eleven with many starting theorists. Escassi played his first minutes and did it, as many expected, in the axis of defense. For his part, Diego Martínez wants to give stripes from the beginning to Luis Milla, a strong bet of the club that begins to leave details that he can be a key player this season in Los Cármenes. At Málaga, the homegrown players continue to gain merits. Ismael Casas and Juande, both recently renovated, are already two very pleasant realities.

It took the defenses half an hour to leave the first loophole to the attackers. The first was found by Tete Morente, who took advantage of Germán's poor control to demand Aaron. The answer, from set pieces, was given by Soldier. But he missed on goal. Gonzalo also had his share of prominence with a good hand after a poor clearance by Tete.

Iván Calero also made his debut as a blue and white in the second half. The winger hardly suffered in defense, although he did not show much in attack. The chances were made to wait again after the break. Malaga remained well planted and finished better than Granada, but is still orphaned in attack (Orlando Sá did not play due to muscle discomfort and the club hopes to close Caye Quintana in the next few hours) .

Granada is also very close up. Diego Martínez's team got worse with the changes. He lost spark and presence and failed to put Munir in trouble in the entire second half. Diego Martínez misses Jorge Molina, who will take time to join the group after his positive for COVID-19, and some more piece that the rojiblanco club must find in the market.

Málaga, very serious behind, is still very caught with tweezers in attack. Granada still lacks rhythm and filming in the final meters. Under these parameters, the game had a logical outcome and ended goalless.
