REPORT | 27/10/2018 | Borja Miranda | PHOTOGRAPHER: Víctor CarreteroThe academy side were the better of the two teams and deserved at least a point at the Di Stéfano against Fuenlabrada.
- 2 Division B Group I
- Matchday 10
The academy side began the game well, moving the ball with purpose and forcing their opponents deeper as time wore on. De Frutos led the initial forays for his team from the right-hand side, causing problems for Biel Ribas. Fuenlabrada were solid at the back though, using all their experience to nullify the madridista attacks and make the most of their scarce attempts on Luca's goal: it was a fine piece of individual play from Iribas which led to him opening the scoring, with a nicely placed shot from the edge of the box.
Luck was out
Solari didn't rush their response. They remained patient as they took control of the ball and upped the pace of the clash in the second half. The referee ruled out a Cristo goal for offside on 50’, before Franchu could have levelled things up after linking up with Cristo in the box once again. The Whites streamed forward in the closing stages but just their luck just wouldn't turn and the three points made their way to Fuenlabrada.
