The match had been balanced until an in-depth dispatch over Pablo Pérez was cut off by José Antonio Caro run overdo to the striker and resulting in the maximum penalty that he transformed Pedro Diaz, despite the goalkeeper guessing the launch.
The situation was even more complicated for the locals with the injury of the midfielder Oscar Sielva on the brink of rest, which forced, after passing through the changing rooms to vary Jon Pérez Bolo his scheme, giving entrance to Gaspar Panadero.
The resumption held strong emotions, first with the Asturian goal when heading Pablo Pérez a launch of lack of Pedro Díaz to put the 0-2, but in just over five minutes, Deportiva found the unexpected, first shortening the disadvantage with a very distant shot from Curro Sánchez that he bounced to Mariño and later with a ball that reached Pablo Valcarce to make it 2-2.
After the pertinent consultation to the video arbitration the referee Hernández Maeso ended up conceding the goal when the ball came to a rival’s striker from Bercia.
The match was already broken and if Ponferradina first warned, then another controversial play came, since after Sporting scored the so much was annulled for possible foul of Babin on Yuri, putting the icing below Manu Garcia with a play to frame the Asturian who ended up adorning himself too much.
