Málaga and José Alberto will have to face important casualties again in his next league match against Ibiza. This time it will be the sanctions that will leave the Asturian coach without two relevant elements within his squad. Alberto Escassi and Jozabed Sánchez were cautioned during the match against Sporting de Gijón (2-2) and must serve a penalty game due to accumulation of yellow cards next Saturday, January 22, against Ibiza at La Rosaleda (9:00 p.m.).
For said appointment the technician hopes to recover Genaro, Antoñín and Chavarría, who were not in front of Sporting and continue to recover from their respective ailments. What’s more, Javi Jiménez and Peybernes are one yellow away from suspension, two regular starters who will have to face the Balearic Islands if they want to be available for the match day 25 in Anduva against Mirandés. Juande, for his part, is exercising at a slower pace these days. From the club they point out that the annoyances that forced him to replace him at halftime against Sporting are not serious, he only suffers from an overload in the right adductor and will be available for the next day.
Hicham, who suffered his umpteenth muscle injury in a year and a half in the last game of 2021 against Leganés, was seen on Tuesday on the Annex lawn. The Moroccan winger made a continuous career under the supervision of physical trainer Julio Rodríguez.
