Happiness will reign for several days in Martiricos. Finally! Three consecutive victories put an end to all doubts and any anger. This is football and it has worked like this all my life. However, not only are the three victories a cause for celebration, but it is also a joy to see the classification of Group II of Primera RFEF. He Malaga CF will reach matchday 5 in third position.
Only Castellón and Ceuta currently surpass Sergio Pellicer’s team In the table. Castalia’s team complied with a draw at El Maulí, while Ceuta did end up with a victory against Alcoyano. Now those two are the rivals who currently lead the blue and white group. However, the difference is minimal, since the Martiricos team is only one point behind the Castellón leadership. It’s a pity about those last minutes in which the tie escaped in Castalia during matchday 1.
Be that as it may, this Málaga CF is already a very different one that has adapted to the category without excessive problems. The blue and white coach has touched the necessary pieces to turn the situation around: a team that has scored in all four games of the competition and that achieved on Saturday keep a clean sheet for the first time. Two challenges on which to grow day by day to remain anchored in those long-awaited play off positions.
What does Málaga CF have ahead of them now? He Sports Linares is the next rival, currently placed in eighth position. After the people of Jaén they will arrive San Fernando (14th), Recreational Huelva (9th), Melilla (17th), Real Madrid B (11th)… a calendar that alternates between rivals fighting for the play off and to get out of the promotion positions, where Martiricos’ team has the need to continue adding points in order to anchor the team in the first positions.
Antequera, in the descent
The one that fails to translate its football sensations into points is Antequera. The other Malaga team in the category received this Sunday in El Maulí the Castellónthe leader with 10/12 possible points. Javier Medina’s men had already scratched a point against Recreativo de Huelva and this day they repeated again against the leader. On the other hand, their confrontations against Atlético de Madrid B and Real Madrid Castilla have resulted in defeats. A path that will try to redirect against Atlético Sanluqueño or Atlético Baleares.
Now, day 4 is not over yet. He Ibiza-Real Murciaone of the great matches between two candidates fighting for promotion, was postponed due to a problem at the Ibizan airport. The Murcians’ plane could not land and the RFEF suspended the match while waiting to find a new date on the calendar. So Fernández Romo’s men, also with 9 points compared to Gustavo Munúa’s 3, remain behind Martiricos’ men with the remaining match to be recovered.
Linares, next rival
With just over a week of rest, next Sunday – starting at 6:00 p.m. – the first major movement of the blue and white fans arrives. More than 2,000 Málaga CF fans will travel to Linarejos to experience the second Andalusian derby of the category after winning this Saturday against Recreativo Granada.
