Málaga are going from strength to strength in their first ever appearance in the Champions League, and they have taken maximum points from their first three games without letting in a single goal after beating the mighty AC Milan 1-0. Joaquín should have given the Andalusians the lead later on in the first half when he fired a penalty over the crossbar after Jesús Gámez had been fouled by Constant in the area, but for the second time in four days he made up for his miss with the winning goal after Iturra put him clear midway through the second half. El Shaawary had fluffed an early chance for the Italian side, and Caballero had to be on his toes to save from Montolivo following a short free kick early in the second half. Otherwise though the visitors were no real threat for the local defence, and Isco, Saviola and Eliseu could all have extended the lead after that.
