We are aware that many of our guests at Hotel Yaramar are really passionate about football and enjoy following sports events.

We are sure that they would love to know that last Wednesday, 22nd of August, Malaga Club de Fútbol won the Champions League play-off against Greek team Panathinaikos.

The match took place in local stadium La Rosaleda.

The team has also had a great start in La Liga as it won (0-1) against Celta de Vigo and draw (1-1) against Mallorca

It is obvious that Malaga C.F. is in one of its best moments and we really wish the bonanza lasts.

This football club was founded in 1904 and it has been a first division team for 31 seasons.

Its current coach is Manuel Pellegrini who puts his mark on the team, with regards to the style of play, concentrating on possession and movement of the ball.

Last season Malaga C.F. was one of the clubs in Europe which made the biggest investment in players. The team’s president strengthened the team with high-profile players including Van Nistelrooy (who retired by the end of La Liga) or Joaquín (who also plays in the Spanish squad).

There is no doubt that season 2011/20112 was its best season so far as it ended up forth in La Liga which is so far its biggest achievement and best classification ever.

Last season’s memorable moments were the brilliant high-scoring matches against Rayo Vallecano (4-2) and Real Zaragoza (5-1)

Taking into consideration that this new season Malaga C.F. has not been defeated in any of the matches played so far there is no doubt that it will continue entertaining us with its fair play and some beautiful goals.  Come on Malaga!!

If you are a real football fan, Hotel Yaramar recommends you to make the most of your stay in Costa del Sol and visit La Rosaleda stadium. The stadium offers you the chance to explore it. The tour includes a visit to the museum, where you can see and experience the history of football in Malaga.

Do not miss out!
