I am nervous for this one
Marcao starting and Oliver, besides that similar line up as against Bilbao.
Let’s hope for a confidence boosting match for us. A very tough game as they flying in segunda but hopefully we can perform well. Vamos!
Very true, we have to show and contradict that we are even close to that segunda level. And generally we have not shown up much at all when needed, except the Granada game.
They might even beat us in professionalism. Could really be a deception today. But let’s not think like that beforehand.
We should have had Cruzcampo as our shirt sponsor…then this match would have been a battle of the beers.
Then Estrella Galicia would win, no doubt.
To be real, our Copa road is the only high aim we can have this season so, please don’t butcher this here in Ferrol.
The real deal in CDR will begin only after this round. Normally this should’ve been a piece of cake for us, but you never know given the current form.
@Tyler and I are in here watching the match. We are chatting here if you would like:
Mallorca and Celta didnt fail.
Not too good a start from us. Salas giving their no14 acres of space in every attack.
They aren’t even pressuring that hard on someone about to receive. and our first idea is to pass back. Really need people to open up quicker and be smarter in their first touches. We look so basic.
Their goalie seems vulnerable too.
We hardly can even hold a ball in the midfield it’s pathetic.
Marcao scores! Haha
Most unlikely scorer but we take it.
Good finish from Marcao. Lucky we score from a corner. Fieldplay was bad.
Good finish by Marcao. Good to see him score, will likely mean a lot to him. Lost his father yesterday so that goal would probably be very emotional.
Ocampos needs to score that. Hits the bar. Stays 0-1
Yup. First good chance, by a slight forced error we came to an open shot.
Marcao is a Leopard 2 Tank…i like him so much.
Juanlu with his head in Madrid already?
Ocampos needs to score that one
Only downside when he caught speed his turning circle is half the pitch. And his passing is risky, but they are hard passes and looking for something, showing initiative, so I’m a fan too.
I don’t think anybody found him bad anyway, just the endless absence and string of small muscle and minor injuries, didn’t seem to stop. So he became a running joke. But if he’s there. He shows up.
