Borja Sánchez gives life to Oviedo in El Molinón

Oviedo took the coronavirus derbysimply because it was better than Sporting. The blue team was the one that was most played on the stake and was the one that deserved the victory. He knew how to contain an imprecise rival on everything and more relaxed on the field. The intensity, the ambition and even the little game that there was, was put by the blues in a stadium without the environmental pressure that it would have had in a normal day.

A goal annulled to Babin in the last minutes put the suspense because the VAR had to review the action that the assistant had immediately canceled. Little more was done in front of Lunin's goal a rojiblanco team, dull and dimly lit in its most important men.

Oviedo was a brave team in El Molinón and had two protagonists. On the one hand, your coach, Cuckoo Ziganda that beat Djukic. The oviedista coach played it off leaving on the bench for the final half hour perhaps his most decisive players in attack.

One of them precisely, Borja Sánchez, scored the winning goal when he had barely ten minutes on the field. The man from Oviedo did it all; stole the ball from a confident Cristian, overcame an excessively slow Nacho Méndez, came to the box, threw the wall at Ortuño –the top blue scorer, who entered the same minito– and he managed to put the toe to beat the goalkeeper with the fewest goals in the category.

That goal is worth its weight in gold in every way. Djukic, who lost part of the confidence he had gained in this event, said that whoever won would be greatly strengthened. At the moment, Oviedo takes it out of the descent.
