Manuel Pellegrini is happy with the improvement being shown by Malaga.

The former Real Madrid and Villarreal boss has led the Andalusian side to victories in his first two matches - one in the Copa del Rey and one in La Liga - to end a run of seven games that included no victories and five defeats under his predecessor Jesualdo Ferreira.

Ahead of their game with Deportivo La Coruna, Pellegrini said: "The wins will help, hopefully now we can build on this improvement in La Coruna with a good game and a good result.

"They (Depor) are a team who have made themselves strong at home, like any team they have their strengths and weaknesses, but I'm much more concerned about my team getting a little closer to the level of play that we want.

"It's important that Depor don't score first, because they are a team who defend very well."
