FC Marbellí celebrated a 3-1 victory on Saturday against CD Ronda, securing their place in the final of the playoff for promotion to the Honor Division. The yellow team defeated their rival with goals from Yiyi and Raúl Toro in the first half and Marcos Ruiz in the second. They will now face Cártama, who surprisingly defeated Atlético Marbella Paraíso at home.

Match Highlights

The match began with high intensity, with Ronda eager to score early to get into the game and Marbellí also keen to secure their place in the final. Yiyi warned the opposition with a shot from the front of the area 12 minutes into the game, and eight minutes later, he collected a rebound to score the first goal. The joy in the stands of the Antonio Naranjo stadium was palpable, with over 200 fans supporting their team.

Ronda’s Fightback and Marbellí’s Response

The Ronda team did not back down and managed to equalize in the 26th minute with a direct free kick. However, Marbellí worked hard to regain the lead, with Churre threatening in the 31st minute and Raúl Toro scoring in the 39th minute. Just before halftime, a great individual action by Asencio almost resulted in a goal, but the visiting goalkeeper managed to save the shot.

Second Half and Final Score

In the second half, FC Marbellí sought a third goal to seal the match against a Ronda team that did not give up but also lacked luck, repeatedly being caught offside. The decisive goal came in the 70th minute, with a great header from Marcos Ruiz from a corner kick. With the match decided, Juan Carlos Puertas began to rotate his squad, giving playing time to all the players called up. Ronda, however, continued to press and managed to score a second goal in the 86th minute.

Upcoming Final
