HThe Madrid derby will open in the final of LaLiga Promises. Atlético beat Valencia on penalties, after drawing at one goal during the 24 minutes of the match, while Real Madrid came from behind Villarreal’s early goal with two goals from Manu Romero. This Sunday, at 5:30 p.m. peninsular time, the decisive match will be played.
Some semifinals that were delayed by a storm and that were even in danger of being postponed to Sunday. Finally they were able to play, with even Marcelo bailing out water so that the field was in perfect condition.
In the first, Atlético struck first with a goal from Rubén Gómez, just before the break. Upon returning, Adriá took advantage of a rejection by Javi, who was dealt a trick by the rain, to equalize. The Atlético goalkeeper later made up for it with two saves and saving David’s decisive penalty.
In the second semi-final, Villarreal went ahead very quickly, in what was the first goal that Guille conceded in the tournament. Manu Romero equalized before the break and again Manu, already in the second half, scored the decisive goal. Villarreal turned, but could not get past Guille, who made a save in the final minutes.
