Hull City closed their last season on the back of some mixed results. In their last six matches, they managed three wins to go with a draw and two defeats. Their overall performance in the Championship 2021/22 was far from satisfactory. The club narrowly avoided relegation finishing at 19th with just 51 points. With an ownership change preceding this season, Hull City will be looking and hoping for a better future. The new owners have already started their work with the arrivals of Ozan Tufan and Allahyar Sayyadmanesh.
Malaga, too had an inconsistent run of results to close their 2021/22 season. They earned two wins, one draw and three losses in their last six games. Overall, last season was a big disappointment for them as they finished at the 18th spot with 45 points to their name. This has been pretty much the case for Malaga in recent years as they have struggled to have make it out of the Segunda Division and get promoted. The fans of the club will hope that the transfer window assists them in having a successful upcoming campaign.
With this being the part of the early pre-season fixtures for both the clubs, it is expected that both the coaches will heavily rotate their squads. Several youngsters and academy players might well also earn some game time. For Hull City, midfielder Adama Traore won’t feature due to a long term hamstring injury. Malaga, on the other hand, don’t have any fitness issues to deal with.
Hull City possible line-up: Ingram, Jones, Greaves, Figueirido, Seri, Tufan, Coyle, Elder, Longman, Sayyadmanesh, Wilks
Malaga possible line-up: Reina, Juanfran, Escassi, Caro, Romero, Rodriguez, Zuniga, Febas, Villodres, Sol, Castro
