Ciudad de Murcia 0 Huercal-Overa CF 1

Los Huercalenses kept up a 100% record last Sunday with a very tricky fixture away in Murcia taking on newly promoted CAP Ciudad de Murcia. With the home fans in fine voice the game got underway with Ciudad looking comfortable on the ball moving forward, but sadly for the locals, not getting the ball flowing quickly enough and in turn not able to break down the visitors defensive line.

CAP CDMThe first half was pensive as both sides took the approach of not conceding with Huercal playing on the counter & Ciudad having the majority of the ball. The best chance for the visitors came when Selu playing on the right side of the attack turned his man and chipped a tidy ball into the box that was just centimeters from the head of Alex, half time 0-0.

Ciudad made a change at half time bringing on left sided playmaker Nacho, he made a great impact going forward with good vision, quick feet and a fantastic range of passing. But it was the visitors who took the lead after 63 minutes, Alex, winning a header from a long pass, found Tabala on the edge of the box with it all to do. A swift turn and a jink found the Alicante born striker with only the keeper to beat & with a solid strike the ball hit the back of the net. 0-1 Huercal-Overa.

In the 77th minute Oscar picked up his 2nd yellow card for Huercal and was sent for an early bath but this didn’t make the game any easier for the Ciudad as the game ended 0-1. A good test for both sides, Ciudad will win more than they will lose this term and Huercal-Overa showing their strength going away from home, playing badly and winning.
