With one more game played than its rivals, Málaga CF has climbed to the top of the table, tied on 19 points with the hitherto intractable Castellón and with two points more than Ibiza (17), which is also making a great start to the season.
While the blue and white team rests this “weekend” with their homework done, His two direct rivals for the leadership will have two quite demanding games which Malaguismo will surely be very aware of this Sunday and which could cause some change at the top of the table.
Curiously, both are played at the same time: 12 noon. The leader, Castellón, visits the Municipal Alfonso Murube of Ceuta. Beware of the fiery test that the black and whites will have in one of the toughest fields in the category. Ceuta is fifth in the table with 14 points and could be just two behind Castalia if they win this Sunday morning. A round-trip match is expected with two teams that have a goal between their eyebrows: 7 goals in the last 5 games for the North Africans and no less than 16 for the Castellón players.
At the same time, another match with an impact on the highest area of the table and which will have Malaguismo very pending: Ibiza-Recreativo de Huelva. The locals are third, with 17 points, so if they win they will overtake Málaga CF in the standings. It won’t be easy for Alberto Escassi’s UD Ibiza from Malaga either because a Recreativo de Huelva team arrives that still doesn’t know what it’s like to lose away from Colombino (their only league defeat was suffered at home, precisely when the almighty Castellón visited them). Note that counting this season and last, Recreativo has 10 games without losing as a visitor.
Ibiza has so far made less “noise” than Castellón or Málaga CF, but the truth is that it has some spectacular numbers that, after recovering the postponed match against Real Murcia this week, they have placed him in that leading trio that, for now, dominates the league in this group of the First Federation.
It seems that the Sunday morning show promises strong emotions. Málaga CF, this time, will see it from a distance and with some peace of mind.
