Malaga ends its curse and depresses Rayo

Málaga won at La Rosaleda four months later and stopped a Rayo that complicated their privileged position among the six best. Joaquín Muñoz and Luis Muñoz, authors of the goals.


Málaga ended with the curse of La Rosaleda, an evil eye that had gripped them since October 21 when they defeated Sporting and, incidentally, ended a good streak for Rayo with 10 points added out of 12 possible away from Vallecas. The triumph of Pelliicer's men was based on 25 brilliant minutes full of edectivity where 'the Muñoz' opened an insurmountable distance for the Franjirrojos to counteract all the bombings of their opponent with faith and discipline. Málaga takes a giant step for their salvation and Rayo complicates their lofty aspirations.

The malaguistas took off like rockets. At three minutes they were ahead on the scoreboard with a shot by Joaquín Muñoz that surpasses Luca Zidane after being deflected by Martín Pascual. The beginning dreamed of by Pellicer's team that could be neutralized by a whiplash from Álvaro García that crashed into the post. A wake-up call for Málaga, who maintained the tension and doubled their lead in the 25th minute with a sensational volley from Luis Muñoz after a cross from Ismael Casas. An unthinkable result with which the break was reached.

Iraola reset after the break taking out the talented Andrés Martín and Montiel for Martín Pascual and Antoñín, who could not show off in what was his home because Matos did not let him do anything. Rayo expected a comeback like Cornellà's against Espanyol. And Malaga knew it.

The red-headed fangs raised the bar. They threw themselves 'to arms' as their unofficial motivational anthem says. Malaga was withdrawing, waiting for an opportunity to sentence, but with fears. Pablo Chavarría in a colossal counterattack, missed 3-0 because he hit too high when Luca was beaten.

Sergio Pellicer's team cautiously entrenched themselves and Iraola's team channeled their entire arsenal into the talent of Álvaro García. Another against malaguista almost broke the Madrilenians. Advincula took out a fine shot from Caye Quintana under the sticks. At 88 'Dani Barrio sent a whiplash from Malaga's Pozo to a corner.

The people from Malaga paused while Rayo drowned before reaching the shore and took three gold points and in his house, his quinary, before a battling Rayo who moves away from direct ascent and sees how his rivals press him to be one of the privileged six fighting for the promotion playoff.
