Marbella FC Struggles to Secure Victory Against Balompédica Linense

Marcos Olguín controls the ball under pressure from an opponent. Marbella FC had to work hard to secure a victory over Balompédica Linense, who played with a man down from the 23rd minute. The Whites had the best scoring opportunities of the match and managed to break the tie with a header from Aitor Puñal at the start of the second half. The win solidifies their position in third place.

Balompédica Linense Visits La Dama de Noche for the First Time

Balompédica Linense, a familiar opponent, visited La Dama de Noche for the first time in the league this Sunday. The match featured two teams aiming for promotion, with more than three points at stake. Coach Fran Beltrán opted to start with the old guard, with only one of the winter signings, Dago, in the starting eleven.

Match Begins with Mutual Respect

The match began with mutual respect between the two teams, neither wanting to risk too much, aware that the game would be a long one. However, everything changed in the 23rd minute when Balona was reduced to ten men due to the expulsion of Fran Carbiá.

Marbella FC Dominates the Game

Before this, Marbella was the team that was reaching the opponent’s area more, with good approaches but without defining accurately. The danger came from the wings with Jorge Álvarez, moving up dangerously but imprecisely, and with Ohemeng, a constant headache for the defense.

Marbella FC Struggles to Break the Tie

Despite maintaining absolute control of the ball, Marbella struggled to finish plays. The match was reminiscent of the game against Estepona. The circumstances of the game were similar, and Marbella was up against two very close and low lines, which made it difficult for the Whites to circulate the ball.

Aitor Puñal Scores the Winning Goal

Just seven minutes into the second half, Aitor Puñal scored a corner kick executed perfectly by Hugo Rodríguez (min. 52). This was a moment of confusion for the Cadiz team, who received a hard blow from a Marbella team that was growing in the match and was circling the area in search of a second goal.

Marbella FC Secures Third Place

The hard-fought victory allows Marbella to consolidate its position in third place and close the gap with Sevilla Atlético; every point counts, and exiting the playoffs is only three points away.
