Excitement and thrilling goals in victory against Getafe CF (3-2)

Javi Gracia kept the foundation of the team and the attacking formation the same as last weekend’s win against FC Barcelona at the Nou Camp, only making two changes at the back and in midfield; Boka and Camacho were included in the starting-11 in substitution of Miguel Torres and Recio.
 
Soon after kick off, the Blue and Whites showed their determination to dominate the match.  In minute 7, Samuel sent out a warning to goalkeeper, Jona as he gained possession following a long ball from Coín-born striker, Juanmi.
 
Just two minutes later, a pacey Rosales on the right wing assisted Juanmi to repeat his goal from last weekend and head the ball into the back of the net to see the home side take a 1-0 lead.
 
Málaga CF controlled play, focused on quick counter-attacks and took advantage of their speed upfront, whilst the visitors attempted to react to the opening goal.  There was only one doubt raised during the first half, a possible hand ball in Getafe CF’s area in minute 28 that the referee ignored by interpreting it to be involuntary.
 
Following this, the remainder of the first 45 minutes was dominated by the Blue and Whites, and after numerous corner kicks and lateral set pieces, Castillejo came close to a second Málaga goal.  The young player gained possession in front of the target and came within a whisker of scoring a fantastic goal which the goalkeeper deflected to a corner.
 
After this opportunity, another clear chance came for Angeleri to increase his team’s lead.  Assistance from Boka allowed Angeleri to power the ball towards the target, sending the ball just to the right of keeper, Jona in minute 35.
 
The second half didn’t start well for the ‘Malaguistas’, who in minute 55 saw Álvaro equalise with a goal from inside the area, impossible for Kameni to prevent.
 
The Blue and Whites retaliated as Sergi Darder scored one of the best goals of the season just a few minutes later.  The midfielder’s strong right foot cleared the cobwebs from the goal and rendered the keeper powerless, to put the home team back out in front.
 
The locals regained control and began harassing the Getafe CF keeper until they scored a third goal.  Castillejo arrived on the wing as if he was walking the tightrope to pass a golden ball to Ricardo Horta, who delivered an acrobatic-style ball into the net to give the Blue and Whites a 3-1 lead.
 
It was a nail-biting finish for the crowd at La Rosaleda as Getafe CF striker, Álvaro scored from a corner kick to make it 3-2 after 75 minutes.
 
However from then on, Javi Gracia’s team went all out to maintain their lead and came away with 41 points, almost certainly sealing their First Division permanency for next season.
