Rayo Vallecano de Madrid SAD are fifth in LaLiga Santander. In 7 games so far in the championship, the team coached by Andoni Iraola has 13 points out of a possible 21.
Four wins, one draw and two defeats are the record of our friends, who visited us this summer to prepare for the start of the championship.
With the arrival of Falcao (3 goals), the good moment of Álvaro García (3 goals) and other players like Isi, the Madrid team is enjoying a sweet moment.
In just 7 games, they have already taken a third of the points they need to secure their place in the first division.
Next Saturday, the team will visit El Sadar, where it will face to Osasuna with the intention of continuing this great run. From the Costa del Sol we will be keeping an eye on our friends from Vallecas, to whom we wish the best of luck.
After their work on the Costa del Sol with Marbella Football Center, the Russian U-16 national team leaves Spanish soil. The team has been gathered for 9 days in Estepona with MFC.
The training camps in Atalaya have been used by the young stars to prepare themselves. Not only physical preparation, but also mental preparation and strengthening the relations between the team members.
This type of training camp really helps the teams to grow. Especially at this age when they are so close to making the leap to the professional world.
In addition to their training and group work, the Russian national team has been able to play two friendly matches against Spain. The first on the 21st, with a 0-1 victory and on the 23rd, before leaving, which ended in a 3-0 defeat.
The Spanish U16 national team finished its training camp on the Costa del Sol. The Spanish team leaves Marbella Football Center after a 4-day training camp during which they have played 2 friendly matches against Russia.
After losing the match on Tuesday 21st by 0-1, David Gordo’s men have played a better match today. They won 3-0 against the Russian team.
It was the first time that these boys wore “the red”. The U-15 team is the first, but last year, this generation could not debut with the Spanish national team because of the pandemic.
These 4 days have been a dream for some boys who aspire to the maximum and who promise to be the stars of the coming years. Now they have to keep working to become what they could be. From MFC we will keep track of these young talents.
The Russia U-16 national team continues its preparation on the Costa del Sol. The Russian team is performing a 9-day training camp with Marbella Football Center. They are training at the facilities of Atalaya Football Fields. They arrived last 16th and will stay until the 24th.
During this time, the team is enjoying very pleasant temperatures, in contrast to what they can find in Russia at the end of September. In addition to being able to work in optimal conditions, the team is taking advantage of the stay to do outdoor activities or go to the beach.
Yesterday the team played against the Spanish national team, which is training at the Marbella Football Center. The match, very hard fought, ended with a 0-1 result in favour of Russia, with a solitary goal in the first half.
The U16 Spanish National Team is already in the Costa del Sol. The team is already performing its first training session at the Marbella Football Center facilities.
David Gordo and his men will train in Marbella for 4 days, during which they will play 2 friendly matches. They will play against the Russian U-16 national team in a match that will help both teams to grow as a team.
The first match will take place tomorrow, Tuesday 21st at 19:00. The second match against the Russian U-16 team will be on Thursday 23rd at 11:00.
Many LaLiga clubs have worked in Marbella Football Center this summer. During the summer period, many choose the Costa del Sol to prepare for the start of the season with the best possible guarantees.
A total of 13 of them between the first and second division worked with us this summer. Today we review their season start.
RCD Mallorca and Real Betis have made the best start to the season in LaLiga, with 7 and 5 points respectively. Rayo Vallecano is in the middle of the table with 4 points. RCD Espanyol, Cádiz CF, Granada CF and RC Celta have been less lucky and will be looking to improve next weekend.
In LaLiga Santander, UD Almería and Málaga CF are in the playoff places, while UD Ibiza and SD Eibar are watching them closely, with 7 points (only 1 point behind Málaga and 2 behind Almería). In the quiet zone of the table we find Las Palmas, with 6 points. The group of MFC’s friends is closed by AD Alcorcón, who last matchday got its first win of the season.
The U16 Spanish National Team will arrive next Monday to the Costa del Sol for a 4-day training camp at Marbella Football Center. David Gordo and his men will arrive on the 20th, where they will stay until the 23rd.
This is not the first time that the RFEF has decided to bring the U16 squad to work with MFC. In fact, a few months ago they already held a training camp. But this time it is different, as in addition to training, they will play two matches organised by MFC against a big rival.
On the 21st at 19:00 they will play the first match against the U16 Russian National Team and on the 23rd at 11:00 they will play again against the same rival.

We wish Marbella FC the best luck in this new season!
