Leganés gives Ponferradina hope

The Leganés and the Ponferradina signed a draw in Butarque (1-1), insipid for the Madrilenians since they had clear chances to sentence before staying with ten men.

The duel was important for both teams, especially for the locals since a victory allowed them to put their qualification on track for the 'play of'f promotion against an opponent who, after caressing permanence, aspires to the same goal.

That will to triumph was reflected from the start, with a more incisive Leganense team that could soon get ahead if Eraso had struck first and with everything in favor of a pass that he chose to control. The defender was on top of him.

Jonathan Silva could also score in a hit from the heart of the area that hit the side of the net, the same fate that Yuri's Vaseline had in which was the clearest opportunity for the Bercianos in the first half.

In the end, the greatest insistence of the host, faithfully reflected in the figure of Sergio González, was rewarded. The center-back, who had warned with a point-blank shot well cleared by Caro, found himself in a similar situation shortly after after a good drop from Miguel. This time her subtle touch ended in the leggings.

With the wind in favor, Leganés appeared incisive from the changing rooms. And he had in the boots of Arnáiz the option to increase the rent but his failure, almost to an empty door, was the finishing touch of a play where previously the rival defense had also made a mistake.

From that moment on, the duel went into torpor until, suddenly, it was agitated again. Avilés found himself with the stick after an excellent individual play and, immediately afterwards, his team were left with ten when Omeruo saw the second yellow for a foul on the edge of the area. Sielva executed it and put the tie. Minutes of madness that were followed again by calm and the final distribution of points.
