Blessed result for Málaga CF that finally brings positive consequences for the blue and white future in LaLiga SmartBank. Martiricos’s team complied with the obligation of winning against Zaragoza (3-0) and, thanks to the results of their direct rivals, the distance has been cut to five points.
After the defeat of Racing against Villarreal B (1-1), the need to win was absolute. And it came true, it finally came true. José Alberto López’s team continues to define salvation with 30 points and now Málaga CF has 25. For now, the future is less black than it was yesterday. Although nothing has been solved yet, far from it.
Meanwhile, Ponferradina -19th with 29 points- drew against Levante, Lugo -21st with 22 points- lost against Eibar and UD Ibiza -22nd with 19 points- also lost on their visit to Deportivo Alavés.
The truth is that the distance that Málaga CF maintains with permanence is even greater than one game, but in the “League of 5” any team can enter at any time. Sporting de Gijón, Mirandés and Real Zaragoza currently have 33 points, only four above the relegation zone.
The next blue and white challenge will be really difficult: a Granada relentless as a local. Racing will visit the Andorra stadium, UD Ibiza will receive Huesca, Lugo will land at the Levante stadium and Ponferradina at Las Palmas. That is to say, height duels for the vast majority of direct rivals. There are still opportunities and you have to fight for all of them to take advantage of them.
