Málaga CF likes it at La Rosaleda (3-0)

Málaga CF makes La Rosaleda enjoyable. It was time. Third consecutive victory, second at home, which makes the blue and white go to bed as leaders of their group in the First Federation. Pellicer’s men went past Recreativo Granada and ended up defeating them by a resounding 3-0. The first half was one of the best the team has seen this season, they passed the ball to go into the break with two goals ahead – from Masllorens, an own goal, and from Dioni. He was able to close the game much earlier, he hit three goals along the way, but it was Juan Hernández who finished the game with less than 10 minutes left.

An exquisite first part

The blue and white team had the best first 45 minutes so far this season to get the game under control before half-time. They dominated from the beginning and managed to quickly turn the match towards the goal. YesExcept for an initial scare due to a mistake by Víctor García that Alfonso Herrero resolved well, the chances belonged to Pellicer’s team.

The first for the blue and white team was Sangalli. Adri López denied him the goal. And with Málaga’s second chance the goal came. Good play by Kevin on the wing, he enters the area and he shoots it, which seemed to go wide, It hit Masllorens and slipped into the Granada goal. The Malaga team soon took the lead.

Pellicer’s team continued to push and, just before the halfway point of the first act, Dioni showed in front of La Rosaleda what he is capable of. Ball into space from Kevin to Roberto, who beats it in the race, stops and finds Dioni so that the man from Malaga gets into the area and unleashes a left-footed shot that surprises the rival goal at the near post.

Martiricos’ team was completing a great first half, much superior to its rival. The Granada reserve team approached timidly from time to time, but Alfonso Herrero responded time and again with great confidence to each shot or cross. The blue and white goalkeeper was very accurate in blocking. It was Kevin’s game. His best minutes of the season. Fast, daring, agile… He was driving his defender crazy and La Rosaleda responded with a standing ovation.

Just before the break, Málaga was about to put an end to the game. Roberto stole the wallet from a red-and-white defender and, alone against Adri López, he sent the ball to the post. It was the last thing that happened in the first half.

The second half began just as the first ended. Once again, Roberto sent a shot to the post after winning the game against the Recreativo Granada defense. With the goalkeeper outside his goal, he hit him from a distance and the ball crashed into the woodwork. Málaga was around third. The Nasrid team responded in its attempt to reduce differences. Mortimer, having just entered the field, shot from a distance and Alfonso Herrero caught again.

The Costa del Sol team remained very firm and, above all, very willing in their pressure, from first to last. Special mention for Roberto, who earned the audience’s ovation with another robbery after tireless pressure. 20 minutes into the second half, it was Larrubia who had the opportunity to score. Málaga forgave again. The youth player finished inside the area and also sent the ball to the post. Third post of the match for the blue and white.

The fans, exultant. Gregorio Marrero

Sentence in the final stretch

The match entered its final phase. Málaga had a comfortable two-goal advantage, but the matter was not settled. In any isolated action, Recreativo Granada could get into the game. And he was close to doing it. First, Griger defined too much cross alone against Herrero and then a goal against Clavijo was disallowed for offside.

And with less than 10 to go, Juan Hernández, this time, managed to settle the fight. He caught a ball in front and sent it to save. La Rosaleda enjoyed it, which was a party in the final minutes with a new victory for their team. Leader sleeps better. To follow!
