José Alberto meets again with Mirandés, a bone for Málaga

Málaga and Mirandés, with new coaches and highly renewed squads, meet at La Rosaleda, which will have an audience 441 days later.


Football with an audience returns to La Rosaleda in a League match 441 days after that distant January 14, 2020 against Ponferradina. That day Juande debuted, who today is captain general of the defense. The visitor will be Mirandés, a team that is facing Málaga in this modern era (follow the game live on Since they played in the Cup qualifying round in 2015, they have met six times with a favorable balance for the rojillos, three wins and three draws.

Many new features, starting with the benches. José Alberto is going to meet again with his previous club where he left a great memory. And a golden opportunity for Lolo Escobar who was at Salamanca last year. The Malaguista coach will adjust some of the new signings to last season's base. In this challenge he will not be able to count on Chavarría, Calero and Ramón (long-term injured). We will not see Jozabed and Benkhemassa (muscular injuries), nor Brian Cufré (he has not yet been registered because he is recovering from an injury. Venezuelan Alexander is not registered, for whom the club hopes that he will get a good offer to get something. of money.

Málaga is still looking for two forwards to complete its squad. While this is happening, José Alberto must make provisional decisions. The normal thing is that Brandon is the offensive reference. Your escorts can be Jairo or even Roberto. In addition to José Alberto, Mirandés will meet again with Javi Jiménez and with Genaro, who could be on the bench.

The revolution jabata

For its part, Mirandés will also try to start the season on the right foot. The rojillo team has undergone a profound remodeling during the summer season. Something common for the Anduva club in recent seasons. What does not change is the philosophy with a clear commitment to young players hungry to gain a foothold in professional football. Lolo Escobar's pupils face the appointment at La Rosaleda after leaving good feelings in the preparation phase. Having control of the game, but always trying to hurt the opponent is the idea with which the Extremadura coach works.

The starting eleven is a real unknown, although to complete the call Escobar has had to use the subsidiary since the squad is not yet closed. In defense, Carreira and García de Albéniz will be on the flanks, while Odei and Capellini will be in the center of the rear. More alternatives offered by the squad in attack positions. Simón could be the man of reference, although the presence as the starter of one of the latest incorporations, Roger Brugué, either on the wing or at the tip of the spear, is not ruled out.The ticket problem

This week there has been a certain mess after learning that Málaga can only put 7,000 tickets on sale for this match. In practice it is 25% and not the 40% initially authorized by the Junta de Andalucía. The club cannot do anything else to guarantee a safe distance between people.

The controversy has come when the prices were announced. 10 euros cheapest entry and 70 the most expensive, preferably for fans who had already paid some part of their season ticket. An extra effort in times of crisis and pandemic. The harsh reality is that it costs Malaga no less than 100,000 euros to open the stadium. Classic security costs, lockers, electricity etc. The harsh reality is that while this lasts, playing with the 25% capacity is not profitable. So things will be about 4,000 people, which is not bad. And being Monday.

Aces to follow

Málaga: Paulino. The former Logroñés player has been one of the most outstanding in the preseason. An artist on the dribble.

Mirandés: Íñigo Vicente. The Biscayan player has before him the opportunity to claim the quality that he treasures in his second stage as a rojillo.

Details of the match

Brandon. While the necessary strikers arrive, Brandon is a candidate for a role he usually performs well.

Adventure: Lolo Escobar wants to see a brave team on the La Rosaleda lawn. The rojillos want to add the three points.

In defense. Good moment to see how Juande and Peybernes complement each other in the center of the rear.
