Málaga v Elche La Rosaleda / Segunda División / 24th November 2019 A lot has happened in my football life since I finally witnessed Málaga win a home game a few weeks ago. Much of that triumph has come from my homeland. Firstly, Swansea City overcame the enemy up the road by beating Cardiff 1-0... Continue Reading →
Málaga v Real Oviedo La Rosaleda / Segunda Division / 26th October 219 Deportivo a La Coruna v Málaga - this was the play-off semi-final in last season's Segunda, as both clubs sought a route back to La Liga.

My first ever trip to the home of Málaga, La Rosaleda, and my first use of my Málaga season ticket. I fall in love with the ground, Keidi Bare and the Guiri Army and I'm told that Málaga will love me back too.
