win six games in a row 16 years later

He Málaga CF visit this Sunday to Huelva Recreational Center (8:00 p.m.).

And this Sunday, in the Nuevo Colombino, it may arrive the sixth consecutive. A milestone that the Martiricos team has not achieved since the 2007/08 season with Juan Ramón López Muñiz on the bench.

The opportunity, for now, is there. There are many details that need to be improved, such as control of the game in the final minutes or effectiveness in front of goal.
