Real Murcia : Javi Jiménez – Molinero – Mauro – Catalá – Oscar Sánchez – Acciari – Matilla – Emilio – Sutil (Nico 63’) – Kike (Saúl 80’) – Ruso Garcia (Jorge 45’)
Numancia : Herrerín – Malón – Jaio – Regalón – Juanma (Bonilla 63’) – Nagore – Antonio Tomás – Bedoya (Junior 80’) – Del Pino – Cedrick – Natalia (Pedro 66’)
Referee : Mr. Mariscal Sánchez. Yet again we have a referee with zero criteria. He failed to book Cedrick for a clear, deliberate handball, yet booked the same player a few minutes later for something far less obvious. He was very quick on the draw for yellow cards against Real, but parsimonious and unwilling to show the same to Numancia. He sent Mauro off after Natalio cleverly conned him – and despite being a good 5 or 6 yards outside the box, awarded a penalty (only to be corrected by the linesman). The standards are awful – and getting worse. You just don’t know what the rules are. Each ref has a different set.
