  • Busquets' flying elbow put the win in jeopardy when he was sent off after 59 minutes

Marbella got back on track on Sunday with a 2-0 home win over Recreativo which was complicated only by the sending off of Busquets in the 59th minute.

By that point they were already a goal up thanks to an expertly taken freekick by Esteban Granero after 39 minutes - his first since joining from Espanyol.

Busquets' flying elbow put the win in jeopardy but Marbella didn't look in any great danger and even doubled their lead through Planas' low, deflected shot.
