Unexpected result


Just one point. Real could not clinch the three points at the Reale Arena tonight. Our team drew 1-1 against Leganés despite taking the lead. A very uncomfortable match with little reward. Shame. 

Being leaders meant nothing. We just wanted to win again and keep up the good work. It would not be easy. Leganés came out strong under the new coach. There was not a fluent performance in the first half. However, each team had two chances in which the goalkeepers prevented goals. 

Real were clearly dominating the game, specially in the second half. Januzaj was close to score but Cuellar denied him. Our team pushed to get that opening goal, which they did. Merino scored with a header to put us front. 1-0. It was a very difficult task, but we were successful. We just needed to secure the win. Nevertheless, 15 minutes before the final whistle, En Nesyri netted the equaliser with a beautiful header. 

Real was not able to win tonight. Despite this, we are leading the table. We must keep up the good work. Aupa Real!
