The first big chance of the match had Rodrygo at the heart if it, great individual play could have put his team ahead but Irureta produced a save (24'). From then on, the chances began to come thick and fast for Raul's side. Blanco tried his luck from distance, but his shot was kept out by the keeper; in the next attack, Gila hit the bar after a corner from Baeza. Before the break the Real Madrid goal arrived. Rodrygo combined with Reinier who, with a great touch in behind, set up Fidalgo to make it 1-0.
Goal for Rodrygo
After the restart, the visitors pushed on as they looked for an equaliser. Miguel Munoz, with a header, and Joel in the 62nd minute had the clearest chances. Castilla reacted as they looked to kill off the game and Rodrygo, with a free kick, sent the ball over the bar. The visitors did not give up and Estelles thought he got the equaliser (76') but the ball went wide. With three minutes remaining, Rodrygo made a tremendous run from midfield into the box and then masterfully beat Irureta. In the celebration, the Brazilian was sent off a second yellow card. Castilla recorded their ninth victory of the season and extends their unbeaten run.
