Depor Ladies advanced to the final round of the promotion playoff to Liga Iberdrola 2019/20. The gals demolished a rival that only gave problems in the first half.

The first half was difficult for Depor Ladies, the game was continuously stuck with fouls and the gals had problems to create scoring opportunities. Still, the team was able to claim the advantage. Peke had the first opportunity after a short-range attempt that was saved by visiting goalie Mireya (3’).

And Alhama’s keeper was going to fail in the play of the first goal, Tere Abelleira released a lateral free-kick from the right, his high cross went directly into the far post and the keeper miscalculated the trajectory of the ball to allow the first goal.

Alhama improved with the goal and started to push, their best opportunity was a header of Judith that went close to the crossbar (41’). The gals didn’t feel comfortable on the pitch, but reached the pause with a comfortable two-goal lead in the aggregate score

The second half started with a clear chance for Alhama, Marina Martí collected a cross in a lateral free-kick and his attempt was saved by Miralles (51’). And from the possible equalizer the game passed to a definitive 3-0 situation.

Because Deportivo were going to score twice in a matter of two minutes. The second goal arrived after a cross of Tere Abelleira from the left and Gaby was going to score at the far post through a downward header.

The third goal arrived only one minute later, Gaby released a new cross from the left and this time Peke was the one scoring the goal. The consecutive goals resolved the game and Alhama gave up, Deportivo found the fluidity missed in the first half and Peke missed the fourth goal (63’).

But the fourth goal arrived though, Tere Abelleira released a cross in a lateral free-kick, Erika connected the cross and Mireya made the save, but the loose ball was found by Silvia Mérida and she scored from close range.

Just one minute later Alhama were able to pull a goal, it was a counterattack that allowed Marina to face Miralles one-on-one and she didn’t miss from close range. Nuria Rábano (76’) and Maya (78’) had the chance to score the fifth goal, but they failed.

Maya Yamamoto was going to have a new chance and this time she didn’t miss, Nuria released a cross from the right and the Japanese player met the ball inside the box and scored through a header and after a new error of Mireya.
