Marbella were left wondering what could have been after they were held to a draw away in Murcia on Sunday.

The visitors began brightly, with Mustafá causing danger down the flank and Manel and Óscar equally threatening up front. Real Murcia were content to sit back and take a more conservative approach, allowing Marbella to take the lions share of the posession, and looked for chances to counter when they could.

Marbellas attacking vigour began to fade, and after Álvaro Rodríguez had to withdraw for Josué Dorrio for the hosts, Murcia started to find their feet. When Lolo Pavón brought down Alberto Toril in the Marbella box, Armando stepped up and put the home side in front.

Cubillos team were stunned by Murcias goal, and their response would have to wait until after the interval. The four corners they earned themselves within the opening minutes of the second half evidenced their determination to claw their way back into the game. From one of these set pieces, defender Saúl González reacted first to a rebound in the Murcia box to hit the ball home.

Marbellas second half showed why they are Spains only unbeaten side this season, but they will likely see these as two points dropped.
