Osasuna was premiered in this edition of the Copa del Rey al Lorca, in Murcian lands. A third division team that left with all the illusion of the world and wanting to prove that for something they are second in the tenth group of Third Division. Jagoba Arrasate decided to give minutes to the less usual, but making it clear that they want to continue in this competition that he likes so much in Pamplona. They returned to eleven players as Unai García who wore the captain’s armband and Iñigo Pérez, both after overcoming a long injury. In addition, Iñaki Alvarez and Barbero made their official debut in the elastic with the elastic redware.
The People of Urban Ibán came out proving that they were willing to give everything and try to stand up to Osasuna. The first few minutes passed without clear occasions for either of us, while in Lorca he tried to organize himself in defence. In the 13th minute, Brandon was able to overtake his team after a good pass from Unai Garcia. Soon after, it was Carrasco that missed the opportunity to score for Lorca. Osasuna began besieged Hortal’s goal and the goal came in the 19th minute, from Brandon’s boots, following a big pass from debutante Barbero. The reds were slowly gaining ground. Barbero was able to expand the advantage of a Navarrese ensemble that offered good sensations, while the Lorca tried to stop them. Despite the superiority of those of Arrasate in the first half, the lack of definition prevented the reds from leaving for rest with greater advantage.
From the first bars of the second half Osasuna sought to expand his advantage, while the Lorca, aware that the party was alive, tried to press, but struggled to reach the area of the Navarrese. The Murcianos showed at some points a certain uneasyness in defense. The reds also sinned from losing too many balls. Looking down for his interests, Osasuna was trying to sleep the party. In the 67th minute, Rober Ibáñez was knocked down by a Lorca player within the area and Merida transformed the maximum penalty. Just five minutes later, Juan Villar scored zero to three to Brandon’s pass. Osasuna left the match in court before a Lorca who stood up at all times and did not throw in the towel until the end.
