The Malaga team, without specific striker for the injury of Albanian Armando Sadiku, led the initiative in the first minutes of the match against a firm Fuenlabrada in defense and, without suffering, tried to counteract Malaguista dominance.
Malaga with Dani Pacheco and Hicham, for the bands, made a first chance, after a foul launched by the Venezuelan midfielder Juanpi Anor, who missed the Portuguese Renato Santos.
The scoring chances were scarce between a dominating Malaga, but without hitting, and a very strong Fuenlabrada in defense and who was looking for the plays with the ball stopped to surprise the Moroccan goalkeeper Munir.
The Fuenlabrada changed at the beginning of the second half, came out with more momentum and approached with more danger to the area of Malaga, which reacted with the passing of the minutes and was able to score twice, first with a shot by the Moroccan midfielder Bard Boulahroud, that goalkeeper Biel Ribas stopped, and with an opportunity that failed the central Diego Gonzalez.
Malaga did not find a way to beat goalkeeper Biel Ribas in the final leg of the match and Fuenlabrada, comfortable, defended the tie with relative ease.
