Serious game from Fabril, the team stormed the B squad of Real Madrid during the first stages, and later administrated the advantage after been reduced to ten men.

Coach Cristobal Parralo was once again introducing changes at the lineup. This time Bicho and Francis Uzoho were starters for the first time on the campaign. The only casualties for injury reasons were Jardel and Luis Fernández

The lineup was a 4-2-3-1 with Francis covering the goal, Blas Alonso performed at the right-back position, Steve One and Quique Fornos were the centre-backs, Diego Caballo performed at the left. Edu Expósito and Carlos López were the centre midfielders, Óscar García attacked from the right wing. Bicho was the playmaker, Borja Galán performed on the left wing and Uxio Dapena was the centre forward.

Real Madrid Castilla was the rival for the occasion; the team coached by Santiago Solari arrived with the same number of points (4) and with Dani Gómez, Arturo Molina and Cristo González as the references in attack.

Very compete game for Fabril, the team was a hurricane within the first fifteen minutes, later it had to play with ten players for an hour, but it wasn’t noticed due to the solidarity of a team that has been a pleasant surprise.

The game started with both sides trying to impose their pace, and Fabril were going to score in the first opportunity in the game. Óscar was fouled at the edge of the area during a counterattack, and in the resulting free-kick Borja Galán scored with a perfect shot into the far post of visiting goalie Luca Zidane.

The game continued to be equal, but Fabril were seizing their opportunities, because the second goal came in their second opportunity. Edu Expósito attempted a shot from long distance, instead it turned into a pass that Borja Galán found inside the area, his shot was blocked by Zidane, but the loose ball was collected by Uxio Dapena, who ended scoring from inside the box.

And the third goal arrived soon, Castilla failed in the output of the ball and Óscar collected the ball, then he eluded two rivals and released a perfect volley from the edge of the area. Three chances and three goals, the summary of a perfect Fabril in the start of the game.

The visiting side had the first chance at minute 20, it was a shot from Cristo from the edge of the area that went over the crossbar. Castilla had big problems passing the ball, for this reason they were compromised the ball at midfield and allowed the counterattacks by Depor’s lads.

Fabril were feeling pretty comfortable, but then Carlos López was sent off. He committed a tough tackle at midfield and, since he was previously booked, he was shown the red card. So, the locals had to play with ten players for an hour.

Despite the disadvantage, Fabril remained to be the most dangerous side on the pitch. Still, Parralo didn’t like the numeric disadvantage and ordered the entry of Queijeiro replacing Uxio. The home side continued dominating the ball and the clearest chance for Castilla came until minute 45, it was a double occasion in which the shot of Dani Gómez was saved between Francis and a defender, later Tejero sent the ball out before an empty net.

Solari made a double substitution at half-time and Castilla started the second part pushing strongly and surrounding the local area. Fabril didn’t feel comfortable for some minutes and started to end the plays with long clearances directly into the boots of the visiting defenders.

The script was clear: Castilla needed a goal as a soon as possible, while Fabril started to have chances in the counterattack. At minute 50, Queijeiro missed the target firing from the edge of the area, two minutes later Óscar lead a counterattack, he dribbled two rivals and sent the ball over the crossbar when the fans were about to celebrate the fourth goal.

Fabril improved with the passage of the minutes and it left the feeling that the win was already secured. The first clear chance for Castilla in the second part came at minute 59, Reguilón collected a low cross from the left and beat Steve One, but he didn’t connect the ball properly and it went out before Francis.

The action was repeated at minute 62, this time substitute Campusano sent the ball out. Then Romay replaced Bicho in the second substitution for the locals.  This was going to be an important change as the team gained stability at midfield. Óscar was close to score at minute 68, he led a counterattack that ended with a shot that hit he net by the outside.

Fabril ended the game much better, with Romay brining control at midfield and helping to release a couple of dangerous counterattacks, like the chance for Queijeiro in which he missed alone before Zidane (76’). Two minutes later, Campusano missed a new chance for Castilla, this time collecting the ball at the right side of the area and he sent the ball out.

The final substitution at Fabril was the entry of Gaizka Martínez for Óscar. The last chance in the game came at minute 87, it was a drilling cross from the left that substitute Toni Segura connected at the box, and Francis made the clearance sending the ball over the crossbar.

The perfect game for Fabril, the team scored three times before the 20-minute mark, it suffered an early expulsion, but it didn’t change the outcome as the lads were wiser enough to administrate the advantage. The next game is the visit to Madrilenian side CF Rayo Majadahonda (Sunday, 12h00 CET).
