Marbella FC Prepares for Crucial Match Against Racing Cartagena Mar Menor

Marbella FC is set to host Racing Cartagena Mar Menor this Sunday at 5:00 PM in a crucial match, especially following the heavy defeat they suffered last week against Antoniano in Lebrija. With only eight rounds left until the end of the league, the team now faces a part of the schedule against mid-to-low table rivals, which doesn’t necessarily mean they will be easy opponents.

Marbella FC Faces Three Consecutive Matches Against Teams Fighting for Survival

Marbella FC still has three consecutive matches against teams that are battling to stay in the league, prior to facing stronger rivals in the group. At this stage of the competition, all teams are fighting hard, so nothing will be easy, although the aim is to accumulate as many points as possible. The first of these three matches is against Racing Cartagena Mar Menor, who currently sit in eleventh place, with the same points as Antoniano, who thrashed Marbella FC in the last round.

Marbella FC Coach Reflects on Previous Defeat and Looks Ahead

“It was a tough defeat and we need to learn from it, improve, we are very self-critical,” explained Marbella FC coach, Fran Beltrán. The match in Lebrija was a hard blow for Marbella, a scenario that will be repeated in the next round against La Unión. Beltrán emphasized the need to adjust certain aspects that were not well defended, and to play their own football and compete as best as possible.

Team News and Coach’s Thoughts on the Upcoming Match

Marco Tulio, who is recovering from an injury, and Harper, who is again having physical problems, are not available for the match. Beltrán assured that he will not repeat the same starting lineup, but also made it clear: “I’m not going to blame anyone for the match against Antoniano.” Regarding the opponent, he said that they are “aggressive in the pressure” and advocated for “respecting them, but playing without any complex.”

Recap of the First Round Match and Racing Cartagena’s Recent Form

In the first round match, Marbella FC won 0-3 against a Racing Cartagena that was then outside the relegation zone, where they still remain. The Cartagena team comes from a 1-0 win against Balona, although in their last away match they were heavily defeated 3-0 by Cádiz Mirandilla.
