Goals for Noel, Álvaro and Nico weren't enough for Raúl's boys to win against Fuenlabrada.

Real Madrid Castilla were unable to find a way to beat Fuenlabrada in their seventh pre-season friendly, their last on home turf. The academy team levelled the scoring on three occasions with goals for Noel, Álvaro and Nico, but ultimately the visitors had too much. The final pre-season clash comes on Saturday on the road at Numancia (7:00pm CEST).
The game kicked off at break-neck pace with Fuenlabrada going ahead through Diego inside nine minutes. Castilla's response was swift though, when Noel rose to head home a beautiful Álex Jiménez cross to level proceedings. With 27 minutes gone, Diego got in on the headed action to put the visitors back in front. Nico was then brought down in the box before half-time and Álvaro stepped up to net the spot-kick and make it 2-2.
The game followed a similar pattern following the break and just eight minutes into the second half, Diego completed his hat-trick. Our team refused to let their heads drop and a sublime piece of individual play by Álvaro on the flank was finished when Nico turned home his cross - 3-3. Then, twenty minutes from the end, a mix up at the back saw Amigo pounce to score Fuenlabrada's fourth.
