Málaga CF continue to look like UEFA Champions League naturals after a sublime pair of Eliseu goals helped the newcomers record another hugely impressive victory away against RSC Anderlecht.

Having swatted aside FC Zenit St Petersburg 3-0 on matchday one, Manuel Pellegrini's men gave another indication of their developing pedigree with a dominant display in Brussels. Eliseu was first to make the pressure tell with a blistering strike on the cusp of half-time before swapping power for finesse to chip in his second – and Málaga's third – after Joaquín had converted a 57th-minute penalty.

Reaction

Welcome to the top of the football world. We can conclude that we are still far, far away from reaching that level. We lost without creating a chance.

We are first in the group now but we must not stop here, we have to look to continue. With hard work and humility we know we can achieve our goals and that is what we want to do.
