Malaga CF

Malaga CF hits historic heights

Málaga is the sixth largest city in Spain, yet its professional football club has often existed on the periphery of La Liga, the country’s elite premier league. It was therefore all the more astonishing to see Málaga defeat seasoned European campaigners FC Porto 2-0 in the return leg of the Champions League. The result, which followed a narrow 1-0 defeat in Portugal, saw Málaga qualify against all odds for the quarter final of club football’s most important competition.
