Two Álvaro goals disallowed
The pace of the game picked up after the break and Castilla capitalised as Arribas struck a left-footed shot from the edge of the area. Racing de Ferrol extended their lead just after the half-hour mark. Álex López latched onto a back pass from Manu and beat Cañizares. Raúl looked to close the gap and brought on Iker Bravo, who was making his official debut for the Madrid reserve team. Álvaro made it 2-1 in the 83rd minute when he got on the end of a low cross from Iker Bravo, but the goal was ruled out due to a questionable offside call. The A Malata stadium was again the scene of controversy as Álvaro had another goal overturned for offside. Aranda pulled one back in stoppage time, curling in a perfect finish to make it 2-1.
