ANDY SCHREUR - Friday, December 7, 2012
Only one American will be in action in Spain as Oguchi Onyewu and Malaga face relegaton fodder Granda at home.

Malaga - Granada

Oguchi Onyewu and Malaga look to get back in the win column when they host Granada at La Rosaleda Stadium on Saturday.

The Anchovies are coming off a 1-0 away defeat to Getafe which saw them drop out of the top four in La Liga. They'll be looking to pounce on 18th place Granada, who currently sits in the relegation zone.

Onyewu played 90 minutes midweek in Malaga's Champions League clash with Anderlecht which ended in a 2-2 draw, however, the central defender was an unused substitute last weekend. Onyewu and has only started one domestic league match this season.

Malaga will be without Julio Baptista, who has not played yet this season and possibly French midfielder Jeremy Toulalan, who suffered a hamstring injury in the match against Anderlecht and was subbed off in the 16th minute.

Granada midfielders Hassan Yebda who is recovering from surgery, and Fran Rico and his left knee sprain, will also miss Saturday's match.

Notes:

Carlos Bocanegra continues to rehab his injured hamstring and hopes to return to training with Racing Santander before the end of the year. They face off against Real Madrid B on Sunday.
