Malaga host Real Valladolid at the Estadio La Rosaleda in the Spanish Segunda Division on Saturday, with both sides having contrasting seasons so far.

Malaga are currently 18th in the league, six points above the relegation zone. Pablo Guede's side have been in terrible form of late, having lost their last three games on the trot. They will hope to turn things around with a win against Valladolid on Saturday.

Real Valladolid, on the other hand, are currently second in the league, three points behind Eibar at the top of the table. Pacheta's side have been in inconsistent form of late, having lost two of their last five games. They will know that they can potentially get to the top of the league with a win against Malaga on Saturday.
