VAR Controversy Mars Burgos’ Victory over Eldense
With kickoff and possession for the people of Burgos, the match began at the Nuevo Pepico Amat. At first, Eldense took refuge in their field and forced Burgos to propose. But a VAR warning in the fifth minute of the game made the hearts of more than fifty black and white people who populated the visiting stands shrink. Ávalos Barrera, in the VAR, warned Guzmán Mansilla that, after reviewing the play, he concluded that the action between Mateu and Elgezabal was not worthy of a penalty.
Estévez’s Team Shows Resilience
Although the action was unfavorable, Estévez’s team did not give up and gradually gained presence in the match. In the 15th minute, Chapela struck Caro’s short post from outside the area, securing the first goal of the game.
Burgos’ Attempts to Equalize Fall Short
Bolo’s team tried to react immediately and came close to equalizing the contest with a shot from Dani Ojeda that deflected off an opponent and went into a corner. However, their intention and attitude during the first half were not enough to achieve the tie before the break.
Burgos’ Second Half Dominance
After the break and with two changes in the lineup, Burgos took possession of the ball and sought openings in Estévez’s defensive setup. Espiau and Dani Ojeda had opportunities to score in the 57th and 67th minutes respectively, but failed to convert.
Deportivo Secures Victory
Around the 70th minute, Deportivo had a chance to score their second goal from a set piece, but failed to make contact with the ball. Despite Burgos’ continued efforts, Deportivo’s defense remained resolute. In the 80th minute, Clemente sealed the game with a goal inside the area.
