Victory in the friendly against Fabril, Koné and Aketxe debuted and left a good impression. Gaku Shibasaki also debuted.

First friendly game of the pre-season and first game for Juan Antonio Anquela on board. The rival was Fabril and the Andalusian coach presented a 4-4-2 starting lineup with two Fabril’s players (centre-back Tomás Bourdal and left-back Iñigo Reinoso). Three new signings were also playing for the first time with Depor (Koké Vegas, Gaku Shibasaki and Mamadou Koné).

It was a training match with both teams trying to develop the ball possession and the high pressure, the first chance to score was a volley of Christian Santos that was deflected by Fabril’s keeper Alberto (10’).

Koné was the most active player in the first part, his mobility was marking the difference for Depor and it was him who assisted Borja Valle in the second big chance in the game, the striker fired from the edge of the area and again Alberto deflected the ball (22’). And in the resulting corner-kick, the high cross of Cartabia was connected by Bóveda and the ball went close to the crossbar.  Fabril were trying to have the ball, but they barely created any danger.

Then the first goal arrived. It was perfect pass of Álex Bergantiños, who released a volley from midfield that left Christian Santos alone before the keeper, then the striker scored with a volley from close range. The only chance for Fabril in the first part was a shot of Pedro Martelo that passed close to the far post (43’).

Anquela changed the entire lineup for the second part, Vassilios Lampropoulos and Ager Aketxe debuted with Depor and the game followed the same path, because it was Depor the side pushing up front, while Fabril were only trying to hold on the ball.

Aketxe was the best player in the second half and it was him who assisted for the second goal, it was a corner-kick that Fabril’s centre-back Mujaid found inside the area and he scored with a downward header. Aketxe was close to score the third goal with a strong shot that hit the crossbar (60’). Fabril looked more offensive within the last minutes, Isra had the best chance to score with a strong shot deflected by Álex Cobo (73’).
