Castilla’s strong start led to the game’s opener with barley five minutes on the clock. Iker Bravo was played through by Arribas inside the area and he beat Pedro López to score his first goal for the Whites. But ten minutes later, Sanse took advantage of a loose ball and levelled the clash with Rafa Marín unlucky not to keep the ball out. Then, Arribas went close to putting the visitors ahead with a couple of left-footed strikes that shaved the woodwork. Despite Castilla’s pressure, the two sides went into the break with the scores level.

After the restart, the madridistas went in search of a second goal and the outstanding Arribas forced the opposition goalkeeper into action on another two occasions. First with a long-range strike which was pushed away by Pedro López, and then with another striker inside the area which the home keeper stopped. But Madrid’s insistence paid off when Marvel headed home from a corner via a deflection to make it 1-2 (56’).  
Ten minutes later, Rafa Marín extended the Whites’ lead when he got on the end of Álvaro Martín’s freekick with a powerful header. But the visitors weren’t satisfied and continued to push for another goal. Arribas burst into space and fired past Pedro López to score the fourth goal for Raúl’s side. Theo sealed the three points in stoppage time with a precise shot from the edge of the area.
