Castilla return empty-handed from San Fernando trip

MATCH REPORT. 20/02/2022. Eduardo Olivera

The madridistas, who had a one-man disadvantage from the 25th minute, sought to pull off a comeback right until the last.

Real Madrid Castilla failed to put any points on the board in their visit to the Estadio Iberoamericano 2010, where San Fernando claimed victory in a game in which the Whites were reduced to 10 men with 25 minutes on the clock. Arribas levelled terms at the end of the first half, only for the hosts to secure the spoils courtesy of two second-half strikes. Our team dominated in the attacking stakes during the early exchanges, but San Fernando were first to have a sight on goal when Fuidias did well to prevent his side from falling behind in the one-on-one.
Castilla looked to find some joy down the flanks, but the hosts’ backline stood firm as they frustrated Madrid’s forward forays. With almost half an hour on the clock, things took a turn for the worse for the madridistas as Rafa Marín was shown a second yellow for a foul on Biabiany inside the box and Ferrón stepped up to convert from the spot to put the home side in front. Madrid’s second string, now reduced to 10 men, showed all of their madridista DNA in an effort to turn the scoreline around. Arribas duly restored parity when he picked up a ball on the edge of the box with five minutes of the first half remaining and unleashed a driven effort that flew past Perales and just inside the post to send the sides in all square at the interval.

San Fernando secure spoils
After the restart, the hosts were very much the dominant force in attack. Their offensive superiority saw them regain the lead through Rodrigo Sanz, who fired home from a 58th-minute corner. San Fernando came close to adding to their lead, but Fuidias parried away Pedro Benito’s shot. In the final throws of the contest, Castilla pushed hard for an equaliser and carved out two good chances that narrowly missed the target. With time nearly up, the hosts’ Luis Ruiz struck to make it 3-1 and round off the scoring.
