It caused the mass changes in the eleven of Sandoval and started with a scare due to a slip from his goalkeeper, Pol Freixanet, when he left his area to clear the header and left the ball at Pastrana's feet, who was unable to beat the defense with his shot.

But this Fuenlabrada arrived at the appointment with plenty of confidence. His full of triumphs in his stadium with Sandoval after the break, have released his spirit and with direct football he sought to install doubt in a team in trouble. Sekou, on a scoring streak, was looking for the first half-turn and Chico Flores headed after a corner kick.

The goal however would come after forgiving Extremadura and making a gift. Before the referee pointed out a Pastrana's hand penalty to Hugo Fraile's center that the VAR ended up taking out of the area. Pastrana himself caressed the post in a tight shot and Alex Alegría pardoned two shots. The first solo, with a header, after a lateral foul and after a great action by Pinchi.

To the failures in the definition was added a serious one in the ball exit. Fran Cruz tried to turn on himself in danger zone and Ntkea, Swiftly, he stole his wallet, stood in front of Casto and beat him with a low shot.

It was a harsh punishment for a Estremadura that he had put up arguments to achieve something positive. Led by Pinchi's ability on the right he rose. On the umpteenth attempt he turned his back on Glauder and his pass hooked him to the Alegría net. Before the break, the team from Extremadura was even able to come back, but Zarfino's goal was canceled by the offside player after a great stop by Pol.

The defensive instability of the Fuenlabrada provoked Sandoval's reaction. He went on to defend five with the entry of José León and after 68 minutes he had exhausted all five changes. Arrivals with danger were reduced. Pardo tried it with a long shot and Fraile looked for the square with a right hand.

The Pol's injury due to a muscle problem. The departure of Biel Ribas at the break had given him ownership. Femenías debuted and became the protagonist of the match at 23 years old.
