Raúl's side came away empty-handed on the penultimate matchday of the competition.

Real Madrid Castilla slipped to defeat at the Reino de León against Cultural Leonesa. The academy side battled to fight back until the last minute, but fortune was not on their side. With only two games left to play, Raúl's charges will return to action next Saturday against Fuenlabrada at the Alfredo Di Stéfano (7.30pm).

The home side carved out the first chance early on in the game with a header from Obolskii that narrowly missed the target. The contest was an evenly matched affair, but the hosts had the better of the chances. In the 35th minute, Cultural almost scored with a shot in the area that Carrillo saved brilliantly. Four minutes later, Obolskii again came close with a curling effort that went just wide of the post. Despite the opposition's chances, the visitors went in at half-time with the scores level.

Fortune doesn’t favour Castilla
After the re-start, Solís created the first chance when he pounced on a rebound from Mario de Luis, but he fired over with the goal right in front of him. Cultural finally took the lead in the 66th minute through Obolskii, who finished well past De Luis. Peter almost restored parity eight minutes later when he headed in a good cross from Nico Paz, but Salvi pulled off a fine save to deny him. Two minutes from time, Aranda also tried his luck with a magnificent long-range free-kick that crashed against the crossbar, as Castilla were unable to earn a point in León.
