Malaga 1-3 Las Palmas: Loic Remy scores on debut

Tuesday 12th September , 2017 11:19 am

Former Chelsea striker Loic Remy scored on his Las Palmas debut as they beat Malaga 3-1.

The 30-year-old, who joined after leaving Stamford Bridge on a free transfer, wrapped up the visitors’ first win of the season as they climbed off the bottom of La Liga.

Jonathan Calleri and Jonathan Viera also netted for Las Palmas with Diego Gonzalez’s equaliser eventually counting for nothing with Malaga still winless this season.

Viera fired the visitors ahead on Monday by drilling in off the post after sloppy play from the hosts a minute before the break.

But Malaga levelled within three minutes of the restart when Gonzalez’s glancing header went in off the far post.

Calleri regained the lead for Las Palmas after 69 minutes when he held off Gonzalez’s challenge to score from 12 yards.

Remy, a second-half substitute, then netted his first goal since December 2015 with two minutes left to seal victory.
