Femenino into the drop zone as winless run continues
  • In just a matter of weeks Antonio Contreras' side have squandered a seven-point cushion

Malaga Femenino are back in the relegation zone for the first time in 14 match days after suffering a 4-1 defeat to league leaders Atlético Madrid in the capital on Saturday.

A superb hat-trick from Jenni Hermoso and a strike from Olga García sealed what was, in the end, a straightforward win for the hosts, after Slovenian midfielder Dominika levelled the scores in the 32nd minute.

Results elsewhere worked against Malaga’s women’s side whose downturn in form will be a concern. In just a matter of weeks Antonio Contreras’ charges have squandered a seven-point cushion and are facing an immediate return to the second division.
