Relatively easy victory over Jaen.....we created numerous chances but were a little wasteful in front of goal, and some of the crossing was poor. However, this team is clearly improving, homegrown talents Kike (who seems to be using his brain a bit more) and Aguilera (who ran the show in midfield and was omnipresent all over the pitch) were the outstanding performers.
Real Murcia :
Gago - Gotor - Amaya - Góngora
Aguilera - Richi - Albiol (Isaac, 66') - Pedro
Kike (Cañadas, 61') - Chando.
Zurdo - Espín - José Mari - Rojas
Zarandona - Fernando (Iván, 81') - Segura - Añete (Ángel, 45')
Machado (Toledo, 45') - Fabios.
1-0 Chando (14')
2-0 Richi (90').
Referee : Bernal Moreno. Amazingly for a Spanish referee allowed play to flow as much as possible, ignoring many claims (usually from Jaen) for fouls. Clearly Real Murcia have discussed the attitude towards the officials, so there was zero backchat and therefore zero cards yesterday. Good. No so for Jaen, who had Rojas sent off for a second yellow as he protested to the ref after the first half was over.
Attendance : 7,364
P.S. The draw for the cup is on Wednesday at 13.00 p.m., midday in the UK.
