Alcorcón resists with nine, beats Racing and leaves relegation


Alcorcón, with a solitary goal from Víctor García, beat Real Racing Club in El Sardinero this Monday (0-1) in the last match of the thirty-fourth day of LaLiga Hypermotion, in which their goalkeeper Jesús Ruiz stopped a penalty and in which they resisted with only nine players to escape relegation, a result that stops the Cantabrians’ aspirations of getting closer to the direct promotion zone.

After a first half without danger in either area, the Potter team managed to find the net in the 70th minute, in a cross into the heart of the area after a corner kick that Víctor García, with a header, was in charge of finishing successfully. However, just three minutes later, the Madrid scorer received his second yellow card for arriving late to a divided ball and left his team with ten.

Those of Mehdi Nafti had to suffer even more; In the 78th minute, the referee declared a penalty in favor of the Cantabrians for a stomp by Javi Pérez on Jeremy Arévalo, although goalkeeper Jesús Ruiz guessed Peque’s intentions from eleven meters and prevented the local goal.

Again, in ’83, Chema also received the second card and Alcorcón was left with nine players on the pitch, and Nafti was also sent off. Meanwhile, Peque managed to pierce the Potter’s goal on the verge of injury time, but the referee annulled the goal for offside.

In this way, Racing, which interrupts a series of six games without losing, remains sixth with 53 points, with the same as seventh, Elche, and four from the direct promotion zone. Meanwhile, Alcorcón leaves the danger zone, now two units below its 37.
