The cubs defeated Celta B in the semifinal disputed last weekend in Extremadura, but yesterday they could not with the Castilians, who achieved a place in Second after twenty years without a military in this professional category of state football.
Burgos was somewhat better before the break, especially in the first twenty minutes of the game, when he came out much more plugged, ready to resolve on the fast track by putting high pressure on the cubs’ ball exit.
Little by little the team led by Joseba
Etxeberria The rival was shaking off on Sunday, but without creating clear scoring chances. At the most he got was to send two balls from the right wing, both from Alvaro
