Gato Returns to Starting Lineup as One of the Best in the Match

Gato has returned to the starting lineup, proving to be one of the best players in the match. Marbella FC has today completed one of the best matches of the season, particularly in the first half, where only bad luck prevented them from scoring before the break.

Marbella FC Secures Third Place and Qualifies for Copa del Rey

At the start of the second half, Juanma Acevedo equalized the score at one-all. This result secured the third place for Marbella FC and a spot in the Copa del Rey for Águilas. Marbella FC ended the regular season with a decisive match against Águilas FC.

Coach Fran Beltrán Makes Necessary Changes

Coach Fran Beltrán was forced to make several changes to face the Murcian team. Due to Hugo Rodríguez’s suspension, regular player Marcos Olguín, who was one yellow card away from suspension, was left out. The Alicante coach lined up Lejárraga, Jorge Álvarez, Aitor Puñal, Carrasco, Fran Moreno, Rafa de Vicente, Soto, Juanma Acevedo, Gato, Ohemeng, and Dago.

Águilas Dominates Early Minutes of the Match

The visiting team, Águilas, dominated the early minutes of the match, showing superiority over Marbella FC. They started with great speed and posed a significant threat to the local area within just seven minutes. Mario Abenza scored the first goal, and Isi Ros inexplicably missed an open goal in the second attempt.

Marbella FC Grows Stronger as the Match Progresses

Despite a shaky start, Marbella FC began to grow stronger as the match progressed. The team managed to steal the ball high up, closed spaces at the back, and posed a significant threat to the opponent’s goal. The team improved as the match progressed, with Aitor Puñal adding danger to the attack, and Gato and Ohemeng on the wings, and Dago up front fighting for every ball.

Marbella FC Dominates Second Half

The second half began with a similar dynamic and a goal for Marbella FC. Dago managed to flick on Puñal’s throw-in, and Acevedo controlled the ball in the box to score with a shot next to the post. With the match level and the score in the rest of the Group IV matches, both teams achieved their season’s objective and both eased off the accelerator.

Marbella FC Ends Season on a High Note

Despite the changes, with Águilas bringing on all the firepower they had left with Francis Ferrón, Marbella FC continued to dominate and looked more dangerous. Harper had a chance in the 83rd minute, but his shot was well saved by the visiting defense. The match ended in a draw, which suited both teams. Marbella FC ended a great second half of the season with a draw at La Dama de Noche, securing third place in the standings, which will give them an advantage in the first leg of the promotion playoffs.
