High Stakes at the Antonio Naranjo Stadium

The Antonio Naranjo Municipal Stadium was decked out this Sunday to host the local derby between FC Marbellí and Atlético Marbella Paraíso. At stake were not only the three points for the win but also the leadership of the Malaga group in the First Andalusian League.

Intensity Marks the Game

The match was marked by the intensity of play between two teams that did not want to lose, given the significant emotional implications for the final stretch of the season.

Early Strike by Atlético Marbella Paraíso

The match began with an early strike by Atlético Marbella Paraíso, who launched a quick attack down the right flank. Lucas drove the ball with speed and resolved within the area with a cross shot to make it 0-1.

Yellow Team’s Quick Response

The yellow team’s response was swift, and a quarter of an hour later, Montaño equalized with a direct free kick. From a very skewed angle, the Marbella midfielder surprised with a hard shot to level the contest.

Yiyi’s Missed Opportunity

Yiyi had the chance to make it 2-1 in the 26th minute, but Nono emerged victorious in the one-on-one. Atlético Marbella Paraíso hovered around the area in a couple of actions, but without putting Alex Franco in trouble.

Second Half: Atlético Marbella Paraíso’s Attempt to Score Early

In the second half, Atlético Marbella Paraíso came out trying to score early, but with lateral centers that did not create goal opportunities. Cham tried from the front, and his shot hit the post after touching a defender (min. 56).

Bad News for Marbellí

In the 64th minute, bad news arrived for Marbellí with the muscle injury of Chaves, who had to leave the game. Despite this, as the minutes passed, the yellow team was improving, and in the 77th minute, Essomba launched the counter with a long ball for Juanpe, who beat his marker and connected with Yiyi to score the 2-1.

Visitor’s Struggle to Score

The goal left the visiting team shaken, as they struggled to create many goal opportunities. In fact, the clearest chance would be for Alvarito in the 88th minute, but again Nono emerged victorious in the one-on-one.

Last Shot of the Match

The last shot of the match was a good shot from Javi Pla from outside the area, to which Alex Franco responded with a great stretch.
