We will have to fight to get to the final. Tonight we beat Mirandés in the first leg but our jump into the final will be decided at Anduva. The txuri urdin were not at their best and were not able to add more goals. It is not easy to reach a final.
Real did not generate much danger in the first half. The visitors went all out but the hosts broke the deadlock thanks to a penalty by Oyarzabal. Real was taking the lead but the match was very even and Mirandés equalized through Matheus. We were not able to keep a clean sheet at home. Five minutes before the break, Ødegaard added a second after Limones denied two chances. The score was 2-1 at the break.
Portu had a chance in the beginning of the second half but he was not able to find the back of the net. The team from Miranda fought in their attempts to turn the result in their favour and tried their luck. Alex Remiro did well. The game was tight and intense. Real wanted more but they didn’t put in a good performance.
We know that it is not easy to reach a final. The winner of the semi-final will be decided in three weeks. It will be worth the wait. If we don’t lose in Miranda, we will make it. Aúpa Real!
