Adalberto and Kanté cause Leganés' first defeat in preseason

Leganés dominated with the ball, but Fuenlabrada showed more punch.


CD Leganés and Fuenlabrada played their umpteenth summer rehearsal this Wednesday afternoon. The pepineros showed that they are capable of dominating the rhythm of the game and that they want possession to play the game they like. Leganés led the initiative for many moments, but Fuenlabrada was superior in attack. And it is that those of Oltra demonstrated that against the contrary they can be a fearsome team this year. The goals came in the last minutes in a strategy play and a quick counterattack led by Cristóbal. In the end 0-2 for Fuenlabrada.

The first minutes followed one another with great intensity, but with few occasions. Leganés wanted to dominate with great ball circulation and generate from possession. For its part, Fuenlabrada was more vertical and Salvador had the first for Fuenlabrada, but either he could not find a goal or he found Risk. The truth is that Lega was more protagonist with the ball, but Fuenla was very incisive as soon as he stole. At 33 Riesgo he excelled. With some catlike reflexes to avoid the first from Fuenla after the exit of a corner that Quintillá hit and that without Risk he would have put it in his own door.

Before the break, Leganés received one of the worst news with Avilés's ankle injury. He hurt himself in a tackle that Avilés himself made on Anderson and quickly put his hand on his ankle. He returned to the field, but eventually had to be replaced. At halftime the 0-0 did not move in a very balanced duel.

At halftime both teams made a carousel of changes, especially Leganés. Precisely two newcomers had the first of the second part. Heel by Manu Garrido which Sabin Merino does not reach by a few centimeters in the mouth of the goal. Leganés began the second half with one more march and with absolute control of the initiative and possession. At 65 minutes Juan Muñoz from the front had a new chance for the locals. As the minutes passed, the meeting thickened and the attacks were conspicuous by their absence.

In the 79th minute the goal from Fuenlabrada would arrive. Free kick from the side of the area in which Fuenlabrada attacks, Adalberto hits the far post and the ball grabs a lot of height and makes a beautiful parable to sneak into the cucumber goal. After the second hydration break, Oltra made many changes and Fuenlabrada was more intense in all registers.

In a pepinera Manu could make the tie. However, in the one-on-one game, Belman became a giant and took the Leganés forward's shot with his left foot.

In the last play of the game, a counter led by Cristóbal was used by Kanté to make the second with a cross shot in a wide movement.

On Saturday, August 7, Leganés' double game against Alcorcón at 10:00 in the morning and against Rayo Vallecano at 7:00 p.m.
