The reserves took to the field in a t-shirt in support of Pedro and were good in possession from the start and were very incisive on the flanks. It was Martin who tried his luck from distance with two efforts, but both shots were stopped by Adrian. In the 12th minute, a new attack by the Whites ended with César claiming for a penalty after an incident in the area. Despite Real Madrid's initiative, the Asturian team took the lead in their first attack after a header from Marc Nierga (25'). The striker came close to getting a second, but Guillem cleared the ball off the line. Marc Gual thought he'd scored the equaliser before half-time, but the goal did not stand as the referee blew for offside.
After the break, Raul's team picked up the rhythm of the game. In the 57th minute, Marc Gual, who was making his debut for Castilla, scored the equalizer after masterfully finishing off a low cross from Guillem on the right side. After the goal, the Whites pressed on and created the clearest of chances. First it was Marvin with his head, but Adrian kept it out, then, in the next move, Martin struck the post with 63 minutes on the clock.
Real Madrid continued to dominate and in the 68th minute came close to getting the second. Marc Gual's was one-on-one with the goalkeeper, who came out on top and then Fran Garcia's header didn’t go in after Ramiro cleared the ball off the goal line. However, Langreo were not going to throw in the towel either and Davo, after an individual move, hit the post. It was even in the last ten minutes in which both teams looked for the win, but the match ended in the ninth draw for Castilla this season.
