Dani Martín, Málaga goalkeeper, and the mistakes of the Real Valladolid forwards led José Alberto’s team to get a very sweet point from José Zorrilla, where the Blanquivioletas sinned again of lack of balance, serious defensive errors and an alarming lack of effectiveness, while the visitors did their job, took their opportunity, had another, and they defended the tie with blood, sweat and kicks.
In the first half, Real Valladolid went from more to less, a trajectory contrary to that of Malaga. Those of Pacheta began entering well for the bands, but without creating clear occasions. The most obvious was a clearance against his goal by an Andalusian defender after a center from Plano after a good play alongside Sergio León. The Blanquivioleta dominance did not translate into opportunities and Malaga took a step forward. Roberto had to come out at Brandon’s feet in a section of the match in which the people from Malaga were gaining weight. So much so that in a deep ball, the team did not take the offside well and El Yamiq made a penalty that was as clear as it was unnecessary. The fifth of the season. Real Valladolid has been whistled the most all season. Brandon converted it without problems to overtake the visitors, who took advantage of the permissiveness of Iglesias Villanueva to stop the pucelanos at fault.
The Blanquivioletas came out enraged in the second half, they looked for the tie until they got it. A beautiful play that Kiko Olivas started, Roque Mesa touched the ball, Christ gave it to Plano, who took the opportunity to tie. The pucelanos tried to turn the scoreboard and neglected behind. An irregular departure by Roberto left the ball at Brandon’s feet and only the intervention of El Yamiq prevented the Malaga goal. In the opposite goal, Toni appeared before Dani Martín and the Malaguista goalkeeper showed off in a save that anticipated his great performance from there. Because it is true that the pucelanos were not fine in the auction. Plano failed consecutively, a couple of times, Roque Mesa, too, Toni and even Anuar were able to score, although the clearest was Alcaraz’s shot at point-blank range that the Malaga goalkeeper cleared. But sometimes due to interventions by the goalkeeper and others due to errors in the crosshairs, the Valladolid team did not manage to complete the comeback, without forgetting that goalkeeper Roberto made a great save to striker Roberto from Málaga in a very tight shot from outside the area.
