Malaga much changed for Mallorca

Manuel Pellegrini has rung the changes for Malaga tonight, as they welcome Mallorca into town for the late kick-off.

Between the two legs of the Champions League Play-off round with Panathinakos, Pellegrini has decided to make six changes to his team. In come Sergio Sanchez, Francisco Portillo, Ignacio Camacho, Duda, Diego Buonanotte and Sebastian Fernandez.

Of those dropped, Enzo Maresca is the notable absentee, for his exclusion from the entire squad, having admitted two days ago that he was considering an offer from Sampdoria.

Meanwhile, Mallorca’s Joaquin Caparros, whose team are playing for the second consecutive week in one of the 11pm local time kick-off slots, has the luxury of naming an unchanged line-up, meaning two-goal hero from last week Tomer Hemed starts up front.

Starting line-ups

Malaga: Caballero; Sanchez; Demichelis; Weligton; Monreal; Portillo, Camacho; Duda, Isco, Buonanotte; Fernandez

Mallorca: Aouate, Navarro, Nunes, Bigas, Lopez; Pina, Marquez; Nsue, Victor, Pereira; Hemed
