Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini believes Real Zaragoza will pose a difficult proposition this Sunday.
The Andalusian side face Manolo Jimenez's at La Rosaleda tomorrow lunchtime, and the Chilean Coach has claimed that it will be an 'awkward' game.
“It's going to be very difficult against Real Zaragoza,” he told a Press conference. “They are going to be awkward for us.
“They always go for every last ball because Jimenez gives his team a lot of character.”
He also commented on the inclusion of Julio Baptista for the first time in 16 months, and the noon kick-off.
“I am pleased that Julio is back. He is going to be a very important addition for us.
“It will be difficult for us to adapt to that kick-off time,” he added. “This doesn't happen very often for us, but we will have to grin and get on with it.”
