The real Valladolid got a point from the Martínez Valero stadium, one could say without knowing how. Pezzolano’s men worsened their scoring drought in a game where they barely attempted to move beyond midfield. And Elche CF is the owner and lord of the ball, with Pucela leaning and aimlessly wanting to score a goal in the local goal. In the end, a 0-0 start dominated the scoreboard.
It was a day of self-vindication, trying to break a bad scoring streak and slightly separate yourself from a possible direct opponent. However, the start of the game begins the same way it ends, with nothing happening. Certainly, if you look up the definition of ‘boring’ in the RAE, it is not unreasonable to find this encounter among the examples.
Although it is true that the people of Elche looked a little bit forward to Jordi Masip’s goal,. The indifference was of such a caliber that the most remarkable thing about a completely minimalist first half in terms of occasions was a goal denied by the local Rodrigo Mendoza, who inexplicably slapped the ball in an obvious way to put the ball into the nets of the white. and a purple goal. Logically, the referee immediately denied the goal. It happened in the 26th minute, midway through the first half.
In the 34th minute, Meseguer picked up a ball in the area where he tried to pass to his teammate, but it failed after hitting the hand of an opponent. The referee whistled for a penalty, but it was canceled a few moments after he was found to be offside.
And the most dangerous play of the game came in minute 36. And no, it wasn’t from Real Valladolid, of course. Rodrigo Mendoza hit the ball on the crossbar of Pucela’s goal after a great shot on the edge of the area.
Result: glasses to rest. And if the first part is difficult to digest, the second will not improve, if not worse. In the 51st minute, the first shot on Real Valladolid’s goal. Sergio Escudero hit the ball from outside the area, but it was easily received by Matías Dituro.
And from here, there is not much more to say than that Elche spent about 40 minutes on the Real Valladolid field. Pezzolano’s men have gone four games without a win, not scoring a single goal and losing three of them. In this way, they remain out of the promotion play-off with 36 points, tied with Levante, which is sixth. Next Monday, they will host Racing de Santander at the José Zorrilla Stadium.
