The Málaga has lost the mattress and faces an express competition of three games in which he still has to earn his continuity in Second division the next season. The arrival on the bench of Pablo Guede changed the face of the team, but there are shortcomings that are difficult to correct such as the team’s lack of goals or personality, which has faced a very tough stretch of the calendar (Valladolid, Leganés, Eibar, Las Palmas and Oviedo) and has seen its advantage reduced to just two points.

The last meetings, in addition, have left several players very marked. Guede has shown that his pulse does not tremble when making decisions. On Saturday, without going any further, bet on the left side for Víctor Olmoa youth player who had not played a single minute with the first team. Cufré was relegated to the bench in a gesture by the coach that leaves the footballer on loan from Mallorca very questionable.

Sulfur It hasn’t been a good season. Quite the contrary. But he is not the only footballer whom Guede has pointed out with his decisions. Players like Paulinoa priori one of the most important signings of the project, o Peybernes, undisputed for most of the season. The performance of both the attacker and the center back has clearly gone from more to less, stringing together truly poor performances in recent months.

Paulino has not been a starter in any match with Guede and on Saturday against Oviedo he did not play a single minute. Yes, he had been a starter with the Argentine Peybernes in the previous four games. However, he was substituted at half-time in Las Palmas and followed the entire match against Oviedo from the wing.

Guede has been tightening the screws to the maximum for the team since he took over and Cufré, Paulino and Peybernes have already been marked. It remains to be seen if it is a wake-up call seeking a reaction from the players or if the coach plans to prolong his decisions in the decisive games that remain ahead.
