Before 23,574 spectators and with a whole city on the eve of the most important festival of the year in Zaragoza, AD Alcorcón achieved a creditable 0-2 victory. A very expensive victory achieved thanks to the extraordinary work, seriousness and order of a team that is not afraid of the local push and all its fans.
The start was complicated, by VAR, with controversial plays that stopped the game for several minutes. But none of this deterred Fran Fernández’s team, who knew how to seize and capitalize on their chances, when in the 38th minute Juanma Bravo stole the ball at the start of the Zaragoza match to stay in front of the goalkeeper and beat him with a good shot.
There is a whole second part left where the script will be the same as the first. But the potters are ready for it. What was unexpected was that misfortune would appear again with a bad injury to Juanma Bravo who had to leave the field shortly after the start due to a collision with an opponent who fell on top of the Murcian.
The momentum and the White attacks ran into the strong Alcorconera defense again and again. Alcorcón, for its part, enjoyed some attacks that could have increased its advantage earlier. Addai’s, in the 52nd minute, almost saw the goal after a good action and left-footed finish inside the Ghanaian area.
However, Zaragoza continued to try like a hammer and so, after the hour mark, Mollejo’s goal came, which was disallowed for offside. Relieved, the potters stood up. Eteki is about to make the most of the good anticipation at the start of the home game. That pressure took effect in the 81st minute. Bustos expected the local goalkeeper, Jacobo fell inside the area but the ball fell to Eteki who just pushed it into the back of the net to make it 0-2.
Extending the advantage, the game entered a phase of street runners that Alcorcón took advantage of to further extend their advantage. Alcorcón’s love affair with La Romareda continued with a sixth consecutive victory at the Zaragoza coliseum.
