Málaga climb out of the relegation zone after a convincing 4-1 win over Racing Santander on Sunday evening. Eliseu opened the scoring for the Andalusians with a spectacular first time volley from Duda's corner, and Recio got the second with a shot from outside of the area which took a deflection off a defender. Rosenberg got one back with a low shot on the stroke of half time, but Rondón connected with crosses from Eliseu to score twice at the start of the second half, taking Pellegrini's side to within a point of the Cantabrians in the table.
