The Sporting had dominated the first part to a nonexistent Tenerife, entrenched in his field and without disturbing even one occasion to Diego Marino, one more spectator until the break. In the resumption, the Canarian team seemed to wake up and in an approximation it finds an action that leads to its revision in the VAR, he meets a penalty he had not claimed angrily and sees the path of an unexpected triumph open in Gijon in view of how the events were unfolding.
It was minute 53 when Nahuel touched the ball with the toe and deflected it before the late entry of Marc Valiente on the same side line of the large area; An action without danger of any kind. The referee warns that the play is being reviewed and his subsequent viewing on the monitor ends with a penalty and the expulsion of Marc Valiente, by double warning, since he had seen just the first yellow five minutes before. Suso Santana does not forgive from the fateful point to take advantage of the controversial action and Tenerife tracks a party that was responsible for sentencing Dani Gomez.
Huge blow for Sporting, who in the first part just missed more arrival at the goal of an Ortola, especially bright in a couple of shots of Aitor (29 ’) and Djurdjevic (75’).
The victory gives air to Tenerife and who knows if enough confidence to deliver the project to Sese Rivero, while leaving Jose Alberto Lopez very touched on the sportinguista bench.
