Marbella FC’s Initial Lineup Against El Palo FC

Marbella FC has wrapped up its January matches. The team, known as the “blanquillos”, played all four of their games this month away from home, ending with a positive balance of 7 points out of a possible 12. This comes after a loss to Águilas, victories over UCAM and Manchego, and a draw against El Palo. The blanquillos currently hold the fourth spot in the playoff positions.

A Challenging January for Marbella FC

Marbella FC faced a particularly challenging January, a month that will be remembered for its difficulty. The team entered the new year on the back of poor results, with a demanding schedule of four consecutive away games. The end of the previous year was not kind to Marbella, who only managed to secure one point from their last five matches of 2023, a draw against Vélez. This poor performance plunged the team into a crisis just before the Christmas break.

Difficult Start to the New Year

The start of the new year did not seem promising for Marbella FC. The team had to face the daunting task of playing four consecutive away games, a scheduling anomaly that did not bode well for breaking their losing streak. The team’s return to football after Christmas began with a loss to Águilas, marking their sixth consecutive match without a win. It seemed that their poor run could become historic.

Marbella FC’s Turnaround

However, the players under Fran Beltrán managed to turn things around, first in Murcia, where they defeated UCAM 0-2, and then in Ciudad Real, with a 0-1 victory over Manchego. These six points halted the team’s slide and reaffirmed Marbella as a strong contender for the promotion playoffs. This period of four consecutive away victories ended last Sunday with a draw against El Palo.

January Performance and Upcoming Matches

As a result, Marbella FC’s January performance, played entirely away from home, yielded 7 out of a possible 12 points. The team remains fourth in the standings and continues to be a strong contender. This Sunday, the blanquillos will return to their home ground to face Estepona in a provincial derby. The match will take place at 12:00 PM at La Dama de Noche, with only one point separating the two teams in the standings.
