As in the best fairy tales, Anoeta lived an absolute ecstasy defeating Mallorca with a goal in the last minute, playing the entire second half with ten, and being a striker from Sanse, from Lezo, who scored the winning goal. . Julen Lobete with his goal in 89 ‘made a Real leader who played the entire second half with ten but above all he brought the greatest orgasm to a stadium that lived the entire game on the verge of tears, with emotions on the edge of skin, an environment that at times made the team go through revolutions but that in the end, with the Cup back on the field, generated one of the best atmospheres in the history of a club that lives installed in a fairy tale.

The players went to rest in the middle of the biggest row that is remembered in Anoeta moments after the referee, González Fuertes, left Real with ten when expelling Aihen. The worst that can be said of a referee is that a terrible performance is expected from him beforehand and he complies with it. The referee, as always with the Real, unhinged everyone and caused the biggest fire in recent history in Anoeta.

He might have been right to show Aihen the second yellow but his previous decisions, his bully air, his aggressive body language… it drove everyone crazy. The atmosphere, in itself, was tremendously heated by the previous acts with the delivery of the Cup and that did not help either. It was the first time that an environment like a boiler, by excess, went against the Real. Everything that had folklore prior to the match lacked soccer for a Real as aggressive as it was accelerated. Mallorca also accepted the pulse of aggressiveness and the match turned into a battle, in a round trip in which Real could not impose its game.

Just a Januzaj driving that left behind his heel so that Navarro shot high in 15 ‘, a header at the near post by Merino in a corner in 32’ and a long shot from Guevara in 39 ‘was too little baggage de la Real before the final storm broke that forced him to play the second half with one less.

La Real went on to play 4-41 with Gorosabel on the left back and Mallorca, who had barely left their field in the first half, found the stage to explore another type of match, with more ambition. His first attempt was a shot from Amath to the long post in the 52 ‘that went up and in the 54’ Angel hit to the half return but they annulled the goal to him when controlling with the hand. La Real suffered.
