Munir fires Alaves to safety

Munir El Haddadi gave Alaves a crucial win against fellow strugglers Malaga in La Liga on Thursday evening.

Munir’s decisive strike on the hour mark also made it three wins in four games for Alaves since Abelardo Fernandez’s appointment last month.

The win takes the Basque club out of the relegation zone, lifting them above Deportivo La Coruna – who have played one game fewer – on head-to-head record.

As for Malaga, however, their situation worsens, having also lost at home to Real Betis this week, and they sit bottom of the standings along with Las Palmas on 11 points – four adrift of safety.
