Argentinian coach Pablo Guede has arrived in charge of the bench Malaga CF last April to try to revive the workforce and with a very clear objective: to save the team from relegation. The permanence came on the penultimate day of the 21/22 season, despite the defeat against Burgos, but the resurgence… nothing. And it is that the Malaga coach adds some lousy statistics in the 10 meetings he led to those of Martiricos: Two wins, two draws and six defeats. Eight points out of 30 possible…
Guede led his first match as Malaguista coach on April 9, with a exciting draw against Royal Valladolid (2-2) in The rose garden. At the end of this meeting, the Argentinian won his first victory, on April 16, in the Municipal stadium of Butarque, against CD Leganés, with a 0-3 which raised expectations among the fans Malaguists. So after two very good clashes, without defeat, Guede’s new Málaga CF aimed high. At the end.
But the expectations were unnecessary. Another match at La Rosaleda against Eibar (April 23). The Eibar side scored three goals as visitors – two of them were from Francois Sol-, while the Blue and White only responded with one. first defeat of ‘was Guede’ in the rose garden down 1-3. It was pointless for the locals to start scoring at minute 4 of the game.
The month of April ended with another defeat against the Palm trees2-1, at the Gran Canaria stadium. The Blue and Whites scored their only goal of the 85′, five minutes from the end. Although May started with a bit of encouragement, despite a draw. Málaga CF equalized at home against one Real Oviedo happened to Martiricos enrachado towards the promotion playoffs. And this encouragement continued… with a good result for the malaguistas in the Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez, with a 0-2 in his favor against him Tenerife, with goals from Álvaro Vadillo in the 8th minute and another from Aleix Febas in the 48th minute of the match. A meeting that was condemned three minutes after whistling the start of the second half and with which much of the salvation came.
And so it is, since May 15 in the Canary Islands, Guede’s men have not won, neither at La Rosaleda, nor as visitors. 0-1 against him Burgos at home (May 21); 1-0 against him Lugo (May 28); 1-0 again against Burgos (August 14) and 0-4 v Las Palmas (August 22). four consecutive defeats, although two are from the last 2021/2022 campaign.
Guede’s good games can be counted on the fingers of your hands (and you have plenty of them). 0-3 against Leganés and 0-2 against Tenerife -with very good football-, the two games as visitors. Although the 2-2 against Real Valladolid in La Rosaleda can also be highlighted.
Argentinian they haven’t won a single game at home, Malaguista fans are devastated, helpless… They haven’t seen their team win at La Rosaleda since the past November 20, 2021, 2-1 v UD Las Palmas with goals from Antoñín (30′) and Sekou Gassama (86′), although it was not yet with Guede on the bench.
Málaga CF must win, re-engage their supporters. Guede’s stats so far, as noted, leave a lot to be desired: 60% losses, 20% draws and 20% gains. After the debacle against UD Las Palmas in the last game, he is establishing himself as the main culprit, but Málaga CF You don’t just need a culprit. You need action. And the Malagasy too.
