Early home pressure in this one amounted to nothing, and after a dominant start the game became a lot more open and free flowing than perhaps both managers would have liked. It was, however, the home side who took the lead with Bergara being put in behind after a failed clearance on 29 minutes. Things began to settle down but with the clock edging towards half time, a perfectly timed through ball split the defence and had Sau through 1on1 with the keeper, and cooly megged him to equalise just before half time.  Things could have been even better for the travelling team as Ousted was forced to make a top corner save seconds before the half time whistle.

Second half started with the home side looking to grab the game by the balls, and Ari finished off a tight move in the 6 yard box after a jinxing run from Bernard to eventually get the ball in despite the keeper getting a touch for it to bobble over the line.  That opened up the opportunity to put the game out of reach, and on 66 minutes from a corner the keeper made a superb save to get to the goal bound thunderous header from Ari, only for it to fall to Hurtado who dinked the ball into the net with a close range header.

As has happened so many times this season, one minute later the goal was clawed back with almost a replica of the first one, a defence splitting pass put Sau through to tap beyond the advancing Ousted and call for a tense final 25 minutes to the game. The only real chance fell to Bernard who forced another great save from a volley on the 6 yard box, but managed to hold on for the win at 3-2
