Memorable match

On 9th June 2007, Málaga CF and Cádiz CF played at La Rosaleda on matchday 41 in the Second Division. A goal from Antonio Hidalgo in minute 86 was the definitive equaliser (1-1) for Málaga, following the opener from Cádiz in minute 67 from Acuña. This resulted in mathematical permanency in the Second Division. It was also the last match Marcelo Romero played as a Malaguista.

On that day, Blue and Whites’ coach Juan Ramón Muñiz selected the following starting-11: Goitia; Molinero, Kiko Olivas, Schürrer, Valcarce (Jonatan Valle ’68); Edgar (Perico ’73), Gascón, Sandro (Romero ’89), Calleja; Antonio Hidalgo and ‘Chengue’ Morales.
