The La Liga 2 league table might not tell the truth so early on, but it's the best truth we have so far. Real Zaragoza and Málaga are placed 15th and 10th respectively.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

These teams have little in common geographically as Málaga have to travel 800 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
