During the first minutes, the San Sebastian team led the game and handled the baton with a very defined scheme with Asier Illarramendi in the middle.

In search of a new air, José Bordalás moved the Getafe bench and put Take Kubo and the Catalan playmaker Carlos Aleñá on the pitch. With both, the Madrid team improved their offensive performance somewhat and, in fact, the Japanese was the protagonist in the best occasion of the azulón team with a center that ‘Cucho’ Hernández finished off with a head over the crossbar.
