Squad news


17 Feb 2020
Fabril dropped two points after losing the advantage twice. The true is that SD Compostela was the best team, and the referee was on the spotlight after he showed a red card to Bicho.

Coach Luisito was having the usual casualty of Mujaid Sadick, who played on Friday with the first team, while David Sánchez was suspended. The big novelty was to see Juvenile keeper Alberto Sánchez debuting at the goal as Álex Cobo was on the bench. Famoussa Kanouté was performing at midfield after been out for a month.

SD Compostela arrived as the leader at Tercera with a streak of five straight wins, and they demonstrated it despite been in disadvantage for the most part of the game and after playing the last fifteen minutes with ones less man. Acceptable game for Fabril, but the winless streak of four games is now affecting the promotion aspirations.

The game had a good start, with Primo heading a cross that was blocked by Alberto (4’), later Javi Sánchez had a chance in a free-kick that was saved by visiting goalie Pato Guillén (7’)

And then Pato Guillén failed as Fabril found the first goal in the game. Martí Vilà released a cross from the left and Mario Losada headed the ball in after the visiting goalie slipped at the goal line.

SD Compostela claimed control of the actions after the goal and Hugo Sanmartín was close to score with a shot that went close to the crossbar (11’). Ex-Depor Bicho was pretty active at the visiting team and he was close to score with a strong shot that was barely blocked by Alberto (26’).

Fabril improved within the final fifteen minutes, SD Compostela were still having the ball, but their arrivals weren’t ending in shots on target as the local defence was well placed. In attack, there were some long ball possessions, but the locals were unable to create any scoring opportunity.

The second half started with a strong shot of Javi Sánchez that went close to the crossbar (47’), and then SD Compostela found the equalizer. A cross from the left was cleared by Alberto, and Bicho found the loose ball to score from close range.

After the goal, the game was exciting as it was at the start of the first part. SD Compostela could have scored at minute 62, Bicho lead the counterattack and he assisted Miki, who missed the target from inside the area with a crossed shot. One minute later Aarón Sánchez could have scored for Fabril after an assist by Javi Sánchez, and Pato made the save.

Then both coaches started to make offensive changes, at Fabril Iago Parga replaced Kanouté, and then the game changed as SD Compostela was reduced to ten men. Bicho, who had been the best player at the visiting team, was sent off with two consecutive yellow cards, the second for elbowing Villares at midfield.

The second substitution at Fabril was the entry of Pedro Correia for Aarón Sánchez. Despite the numeric advantage, SD Compostela was the side closer to score. At minute 77, Alberto saved the goal against the attempt of substitute Brais Abelenda.

Iago Novo was the las substitution as he replaced Villares.  And both sides were going to score within the final five minutes. First, a corner for Fabril was connected by Pedro, Iago Parga found the loose ball and restored the advantage for the locals, but only three minutes later SD Compostela scored the equalizer in a fast counterattack in which Primo crossed Alberto.

Referee Extremadura Hernández was controversial since the moment in which Bicho was sent off, he showed eight yellow cards after the expulsion (six for the visiting team) and at the last minute of added time, he whistled a free-kick inside the area for Fabril as he considered that Pato was holding the ball, but the true is that the keeper was waiting for a partner to stand up. But Luisito considered that it was an unfair call and he ordered to send the ball out.

Fabril: (4-2-3-1) Alberto – Valín, Juan Rodríguez, Bourdal, Martí Vilà – Kanouté (Iago Parga 65’), Iago Gandoy – Javi Sánchez, Villares (Iago Novo 79’), Aarón Sánchez (Pedro Sánchez 74’) – Mario Losada.
