Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini has claimed that his side were unlucky not to get anything from the game against Rayo Vallecano.
Two Piti goals were enough to give the Franjjirojos the victory at La Rosaleda, but the Chilean Coach has admitted his men were unfortunate in defeat.
“It was a good game from us,” he told a Press conference. “We were unfortunate not to get anything from the match.
“The lads did well, but just fell short of the win. It's hard to pin-point what went wrong, but I think our Copa del Rey match in midweek took some energy out of us.”
