Miki Villar and Bogusz seal the victory of Ibiza against Al Raed

First triumph of the Ibizan team this preseason with goals from two of their incorporations. The signing of Álex Gálvez, who has followed the game of his new teammates in Orihuela, has been closed.


UD Ibiza has won its first preseason match this Wednesday. The Ibizan team has beaten by 2-0, with goals from Miki Villar and Mateusz Bogusz, the Al Raed team of the highest category in Saudi Arabia and coached by the Spanish Pablo Machín. It is the first victory of the Ibicencos as a Second Division team, in a friendly that has been played at the Los Arcos Stadium, in Orihuela. In the previous match they fell to Getafe in the First Division 1-0.

Far from the triumph, the clash has helped the celestial players to continue accumulating minutes, even if it was against a rival of a lower level than any of those that the islanders will probably find in LaLiga SmartBank in the 2021-22 campaign. Much work remains to be done for a competition that will be very tough, but the Balearic Islands have offered a good image.

With an alignment that will surely differ a lot from what will be seen in LaLiga, in the early stages of the match the young Marcos Corral stood out in the sky blue ranks. The subsidiary footballer was able to score in minute 2 with a beautiful Vaseline that narrowly missed the goal.Shortly after, it was Rodado who had a dangerous shot, and in the 19th minute Marcos Corral was able to start the scoring again with a blow that went over the crossbar of the rival's goal.

But the one who had the honor of signing Ibiza's first goal this preseason was the Galician Miki Villar after half an hour. The winger, who arrived this summer from Compostela, demonstrated his ability to reach space and take advantage of a center from Rodado to send the ball into the net. With that 1-0 the rest of the game was reached.

In the second half, Juan Carlos Carcedo, coach of the island block, introduced several changes. Among them came Castel, who in the 75th minute had the second Balearic goal in his boots. The attacker, who has been signed into property from Atlético de Madrid, after having played on loan at Ibiza last season, exhibited the good ball hitting he has. He took a whip from outside the area that crashed into the post.

Subsequently Davo, who was also one of the refreshment men, had a very clear shot with a shot that was repelled by the Al Raed goalkeeper. The Spaniard, later in the 80th minute, finished off with a very wide header.

Likewise, the Saudi team enjoyed on occasion, but the one that rounded the score was Ibiza. He did it with a goal from another of his new signings, the Polish Mateusz Bogusz, who had taken the field in the second half. The midfielder, who has arrived on loan from Leeds, picked up a loose ball and solved masterfully with a beautiful Vaseline to establish, in the 90th minute, the 2-0.

Álex Gálvez, full agreement

On the other hand, Álex Gálvez, a 32-year veteran defender with experience in the Spanish First Division and the German Bundesliga, will play for UD Ibiza in the 21-22 season in the Second Division. The player, who seemed to be signing for Las Palmas, has finally opted for the offer of the Pitiuso club, with which the agreement is complete. So much so that the footballer was already seeing his new teammates in the friendly match they played against Al Raed Saudi.The last two seasons he played for the Qatar Sport Club, but before that he accumulated an important career in Spain (Sporting, Rayo Vallecano, Eibar and Las Palmas) and Germany (Werder Bremen), with almost 200 games in the top categories in both countries.
