This Sunday he returns to the city, 29 years later, the derby Antequera CF-Malaga CF. It’s time to do it in Primera RFEF, in the third category of Spanish football. However, the good news is that it comes at a very good time for both teams. So one could venture that it will be a match for the province of Malaga and its fans to enjoy two of their teams.
A party is guaranteed in the stands and everything indicates that it will also happen on the playing field. Both teams arrive at El Maulí in a very good state of form, both being in the play off zone -Málaga CF is third and Antequera CF is fifth-, but the most important thing is the winning streak with which they arrive. Sergio Pellicer’s men have accumulated eight consecutive games without losing, while Javier Medina’s men have seven. In short, two of the best teams at the moment.
More points than sensations
The first of all of them is the entity of Martiricos, who has been seen lately with a slight daring to pronounce the word ascent again. Unequivocally, it is the great challenge of achieving this course. The team is made for it, the fans have done their bit to collaborate… no one is losing their minds for recognizing it. The point is that the sensations of recent weeks have diminished.
Málaga CF arrives at the derby with better results than impressions. Pellicer himself has recognized this in the latest press conferences. Now, the three points are three points for the classification. It is evident that everyone would like to not suffer at La Rosaleda and win 3-0, but the rivals play and It is important to keep in mind that the blue and white are going through a complex phase of injuries.
Atlético de Madrid B, Atlético Baleares, Recreativo Granada, Linares, San Fernando, and Melilla have been the victims of Málaga CF. While Recreativo de Huelva and Real Madrid Castilla managed to scratch a point. 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss They keep Martiricos’ team up there with one eye on the curves that the calendar begins to take.
The awakening of the lion
Javier Medina’s project seemed doomed to suffering in his debut in the category after accumulating two defeats and draws in the first four days. However, the only thing he needed to finish putting all the pieces together was… time, just time. From there, the El Maulí team has added four victories and one draw. That is has not lost since September 3. Almost nothing.
The two Madrid affiliates “welcomed” Primera RFEF to Antequera. It is possible that with more injustice than deserved, but what is certain is that the draw against Castellón – the undisputed leader – was a very important turning point to start adding three by three.
It’s not just that he has won four games and that he is, indisputably, the best promoted since the Second RFEF, it is also the way in which he is doing it. 0-3 against Atlético Sanluqueño, 3-0 against Atlético Baleares, 0-1 at Mérida and this last weekend 0-1 against Melilla. A match of continued persistence that showed what Antequera is right now.
So Málaga will experience a football festival in style. Both teams arrive at the derby in almost unbeatable form.. One fights to recover one’s history. The other does it as a recently promoted person. In the end, and despite everything, both are in the play off, so prepare yourselves for a match of strong emotions.
