However, the nerves and the concern to carry out the matches are taking their toll in the last matches of the Costa Soleños who, at the beginning of the league, began to compete with the title of favorites to fight for promotion.
In fact, the game started with many inaccuracies in attack, not only on the part of the Malacitanos, but also of the Alicante, who also arrived in Malaga with the need to score. And it was difficult for both Trops and Agustinos to break the defensive wall. Failures in the opposite field caused by nerves followed one another. Proof of this is that at minute 06.19, the result was only 1-2 for the Alicante team. Javi García, in a classic pivot, scored the goal for the Malacita team, which began losing 0-2.
Quino Soler’s pupils equaled the goal (3-3) on 09.28 and from here on, equality was established. With an exchange of blows the minutes passed.

The match was being blocked, with the defenses imposing themselves on the attacks, and could fall to either side, although Agustinos Alicante managed to get an advantage of two goals (7-9) at 25.00.

The blue and white team needed to improve to go into the break with a more even result, but when the game resumed, the Alicante team scored one more goal (7-10) on 09/27, the highest income of the party.
With one minute left, Agustinos de Alicante’s advantage remained the same (8-11) to the astonishment of the fans. And although Trops was able to reduce the distance a few seconds before the conclusion of the first act, Chilean winger Mati Paya was ultimately unable to score the goal that would have served to return to the field more calmly.
Back at 40×20, the Trops took to the track more energized. Quino Soler’s talk in the locker room had an effect in the first stages of the game. So, from 9-11 at the end of the first period it went to 11-12 at minute 35.00. But the Alicante team, which printed speed in each of the attacking actions, was sweet and opened the gap to three again.
After this visitor’s push, Trops put on their overalls and went for the game. In a few dizzying minutes, not devoid of emotion, the people of Malaga put all the meat on the grill until tie the duel (18-18) at 2:30 p.m. During this time of blue and white momentum, young winger Pablo Soler provided the attacking effectiveness that his team had lacked.
