With only seven La Liga games left to go this season, the relegation candidates at the wrong end of the table look almost guaranteed to retain their three current occupants: Deportivo La Coruna, Las Palmas and Malaga. The first to go down will almost certainly be Malaga, who could go down within a fortnight. They welcome Real Madrid this weekend before travelling to Levante, the side who will most likely consign them to a season in the second tier. Levante are in fact the side who will define exactly when…
