Malaga vs. FC Porto: Lineups

New, comments

Both sides have made minor changes from the first leg in Portugal.

Claudio Villa

Malaga need a victory at home to advance and Manuel Pellegrini has named nearly the same starting eleven from the first leg. The only change is in the defense where Jesús Gámez takes over at fullback for Sergio Sanchez

Vítor Pereira has made a couple changes from his first leg lineup. Marat Izmailov is out of the lineup and will likely be replaced at the top of the formation by Jackson Martinez or Silvestre Varela. Steven Defour takes Izmailov's place in the lineup but will play deeper in the midfield.

Malaga starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Willy Caballero; Jesús Gámez, Weligton, Martin Demichelis, Vitorino Antunes; Jeremy Toulalan, Manuel Iturra; Joaquin, Julio Baptista, Isco; Javier Saviola.

FC Porto starting lineup (4-3-3): Helton; Danilo, Eliaquim Mangala, Nicolás Otamendi, Alex Sandro; Fernando, Steven Defour, Lucho Gonzalez; João Moutinho, Jackson Martinez, Silvestre Varela.
