Malaga held 1-1 by Deportivo La Coruna at home in Spanish league


BARCELONA, Spain — Malaga was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Deportivo La Coruna Sunday as both failed to end winless streaks in the Spanish league.

Forward Nordin Amrabat scored from outside the area to give Malaga the lead two minutes after halftime.

But Oriol Riera headed in Lucas Perez's free kick in the 60th, and Perez almost scored when he struck another free kick off the post and across the goal-mouth in the 83rd.

Deportivo goalkeeper Fabricio Agosto made a one-handed save to deny substitute Javi Guerra in stoppage time.

Winless in six rounds, Malaga remained in seventh place, one point ahead of Athletic Bilbao, as it vies for a Europa League spot.

Deportivo inched one point above the relegation zone after enduring an 11th round without a victory.
