Last-minute goal condemns Marbella to fourth consecutive league defeat

  • The Costa side were unlucky in a 1-0 loss at home to Atlético Sanluqueño

Marbella FC's recent poor form continued following a 1-0 defeat at home to Atlético Sanluqueño on Sunday evening. A last-minute goal against the run of play made the difference and means it’s now four losses in a row for Marbella.

The hosts started the brighter, with most of their good attacking play coming on the right-hand side but the best chance of the first half fell to Sanluqueño, when Carrión had his strike saved by Santomé.

At the start of the second half, Alfred Planas created a good chance for Callejón, which forced a decent save out of Ismael Gil.

As the game wore on, striker Chumbi was involved in much of Marbella’s positive play and he had a penalty claim waved away by the referee. Meanwhile, the side from Cádiz offered little going forward.

Indeed, Sanluqueño spent most of the closing stages camped in their own half, successfully maintaining their clean sheet.

And then, in the fourth minute of stoppage time, Kevin was left through on goal following a counterattack and scored the winner for the visitors. It was a truly cruel end to a game from which Marbella deserved so much more.
