An early Toni García goal doomed a practice game in which Guede used an early XI with the final four signings, waiting to face Cadiz in the afternoon
Results are secondary in pre-season, but all teams like to add wins early in the preparation. So far Malaga have picked up two wins against inferior rivals and suffered a defeat against a Hull town with the most advanced work due to the close start to the competition in the British second. And this Saturday morning, in the first of the day’s commitments, Pablo Guede’s team lost by the minimum against Linense, a rival of the First RFEF (0-1).
The training match was played at Malaga’s usual training camp in Estepona. For this first round of the day, the blue and white coach immediately used an eleven which included the last four recruits to arrive. Here is the squad: Rubén Yáñez, Juanfran, Esteban Burgos, Ramalho, Víctor Olmo, Ramón, Jozabed, Dani Lorenzo, Álex Gallar, Fran Sol and Rubén Castro.
According to the information provided by the two participating clubs, since the friendly match took place behind closed doors, a goal by Toni García at the end of the first quarter of an hour of the match was decisive for the victory to go to the La Linea team. . Málaga reacted with more possession in the second half, but that wasn’t enough to change the score. It was the team of the second half: Rubén Yáñez, Juande, Genaro, Andrés Caro, Issa Fomba, Javi Jiménez, Escassi, Luis Muñoz, Febas, Loren and Chavarría.
It is worth mentioning the presence of Chavarría, who until now had not participated in any meeting. The coach gave his men minutes pending the dispute this afternoon of a more demanding friendly, against Cadiz, in the first division. It is foreseeable that in the match against the yellow team, a Malaga closer to the one that will be seen next season can be seen in the facilities of the Marbella Football Center.
The blue and white team have already played four warm-up matches, although three of them were one more training session in their field of work. First it was against their own subsidiary (7-0), then against Hull City (1-3), against Vélez (6-0) and today with Linense as a rival (0-1). But the list of confrontations will be especially important, since the coach wants all the players to add many minutes of play. Thus, the friendly matches continue with another today (Cádiz), to continue with other rivals like Almería, Xerez, Al-Nasr or Granada. But it is also foreseeable that other appointments will be scheduled in the coming days, even during the week. Now, the halfway point of the preparation phase has been reached for a championship which will start very soon, in about three weeks.
