ANDHe Jan stumbled again on the same stone. Again at home, again in a spectacular setting, again in front of Via Albali Valdepeas. As in the Spanish Cup, the team from La Mancha emerged victorious from the duel of fans. So he did it on penalties. This time, the agony was not so much, although it was close to the limit.. A goal from Batera less than two minutes from the end decided the match.
In the first part, the Andalusians seemed once again to weigh down the responsibility of playing at home. It is also true that they do not arrive at a good time of the season and it was noticeable. It was the Via Albali that took over. YTwo minutes later Geragthy warned with a shot to the post and at 7 the first goal came, with another shot that hit the crossbar, but hit Henrique’s back to score a goal.
It was very difficult for Jan to get into the game against a team that was very well planted on the court and very confident. In fact, before the break the 2-0 could have come, first in a one-on-one between Rafa Rato and Henrique and then with another shot to the post by Batera.
After the break, Jan managed to turn the situation around. He took a step forward and watched over Edu Sousa’s goalkeeper, who had to multiply. Again a shot at the post, this time by Bruno Petry, served as a warning. Shortly after, after an impossible save by the Portuguese goalkeeper, the equalizer came through Carlitos.
It was the starting signal for a new game, with a lot of back and forth, although always with the Manchegos putting themselves ahead. Matheus Pre made it 2-1 at 34′, Csar responded with 2-2 at 36′, but Batera, with 1.53 to go, gave his team the win.
After being in the finals of the Spanish Cup and the League, now Via Albali will dispute the Copa del Rey. And against a Second team. An unbeatable opportunity.
