- RC Deportivo: Fernando Navarro and Juanfran (both injured).
- Malaga CF: Bakary Kone, Juanpi, Zdravko Kuzmanovic and Adalberto Peñaranda (all injured); Federico Ricca (suspended).
Deportivo (16th, 28 pts):
- The Galicians are winless in their last six LaLiga Santander meetings with Malaga (D2 L4). The last time they beat the Andalusians was a 1-0 triumph at Riazor back in January 2013, when Domingos was in the home dugout.
- Pepe Mel has only led Depor to two victories in the eight games he has overseen, drawing and losing three apiece. One of those two wins – the 2-1 upset of FC Barcelona – came at Riazor.
Malaga CF (14th, 33 pts):
- The La Rosaleda-based outfit's coach, Michel, has yet to taste defeat on his four managerial visits to Riazor in LaLiga action (W2 D2). Three of those matches took place during his time at the helm of Getafe CF, while the other was when he was in charge of Sevilla FC.
- Forward Sandro, who opened the scoring in last weekend's 2-0 win over old club Barcelona, is on the brink of becoming the first Spanish player to net 10 times in a single LaLiga Santander season for Malaga since Salva hit 19 league goals for the Andalusians in 2003/04.
