THE MATCH
Big score for Fabril, but the true is that the result was too much for a CF Talavera that made a solid game and that only lost in the final minutes. Fabril was facing the game with several casualties and Panamanian Ismael Díaz was key in the final stretch.

The game started with Fabril dominating the ball possession, but CF Talavera had the first approximations through two lateral free-kicks, in the last one Álex Cobo had to punch the ball out (9’). One minute later Óscar dribbled a rival on the left and his cross was cleared by a defender.

The visiting side started to feel comfortable and had the first clear chance to score, it was a deflection that Miguel Espinar picked at the edge of the area, but he sent the ball over the crossbar when he was alone before Cobo (14’).

Two minutes later Víctor Andrés escaped the mark and released a low cross from the left corner of the box, Cobo deflected the ball and later a defender cleared the danger. Meanwhile, Depor were only appearing with Óscar on the left, he was able to elude a rival and his cross was headed out by Martín Bengoa (18’).

Fabril continued suffering, mainly defending the set-pieces. At minute 19, a lateral free-kick ended with a double chance for Paul Quaye, in the last he missed the target firing from the edge of the area.  Fabril started to improve as soon as Borja Galán started to have a bigger participation, at minute 25 his solo move on the left ended with a drilling shot blocked by visiting goalie Ernesto Machuca.

Óscar had the second chance for Fabril, the winger appeared on the right wing to release a strong shot that was stopped by Machuca (31’).  Seven minutes later, Óscar assisted Blas Alonso and the fullback missed the target firing from the right side of the area.

The second half started with a direct free-kick by Cristian Fernández that was blocked by Álex Cobo (46’).  The first chance for Fabril was a big one, a counterattack ended in a combination between Martín Bengoa and Óscar with a latter firing a strong shot that passed close to the far post (48’).

Then Parralo made the first substitution, Juvenile Sergio Ortuño debuted replacing Carlos López, the move was followed by the entry of Ismael Díaz for Borja Galán. The modifications switched the draw into a 4-4-2 with Ortuño performing at midfield and Martín Bengoa playing towards the left wing.

The visiting side could have been awarded with a penalty at minute 55, Jorge Fernández jumped for the ball inside the box, he was pushed by Blas Alonso coming from the behind, and the referee didn’t want to whistle the penalty. It was crucial as the score was still 0-0.

Ismael Díaz was close to score at minute 64, he collected a pass from Blas Alonso and his crossed shot passed close to the far post of Machuca. Two minutes later Steve One had to leave the pitch after picking a knock as he was trying to clear a ball. He was replaced by Gaizka Martínez.

Espinar had the next chance for CF Talavera as he headed the ball in a corner-kick action, but he missed the target (68’). Then the game changed with two counterattacks in which Ismael Díaz was the key. In the first he drilled the ball to Lucas Viña, who entered the area by the left to end scoring with a drilling and crossed shot.

Just three minutes later the play was repeated, this time on the right side with Óscar García scoring with a new low and crossed attempt. The game was ending, but the chances to score, scarce just minutes before, were arriving for both sides.

At minute 85, Ismael Díaz could have scored with a short-range attempt saved by Machuca, three minutes later Paul Quaye collected a pass from substitute Jesus Jiménez, but he missed the target from the edge of the area.

And the game ended with the third goal for Fabril, CF Talavera committed an error in the output of the ball, Sergio Ortuño drilled a ball into the edge of the area, Uxío left the ball pass between his legs, then Álvaro Queijeiro arrived to score with a low shot.
