Real societyTOOdegaard and Oyarzabal scored the goals of the Txuriurdin but were very well defended
MikelOyarzabal and Martin Odegaard did not have one of the usual outstanding performances yesterdayto which we are accustomed this season,but they appearedin key moments of the match against Mirands,to score both goalswith which the Royal Society go to Anduva on March 4 with that minimum advantage, although advantage after all.
Oyarzabal almost missed yesterday’s date, since the win could not train, feeling unwell, what caused him to go to the concentration hotel on his own and not with his companions, so as not to spread the virus to his companions on the way in a coach to which they got on the kids of the subsidiary Xeber Alkain and Nais Djouhara, just in case their intent was not available.
Nor did the ’10’ start the ideal match, sinceI received a strong entry from a Mirands player in the first minute, that after Muniain’s last Sunday, in the derby against Athetic, he left a while touched, although he could finally continue on the green, to be one of the protagonists of the night.
And, when the Mirands had started better,a doubtful penaltyof Odei on PortuI allowed Oyarzabal to put, in the Xabi Prieto style, 1-0in the electronic of the Reale Arena, in what was his first goal in this tournament of the K.O. and in 2020, after eight meetings without success. It was about the little he did before the break.
Nor had Odegaard participated,very well covered by the Malsa, in the first half,but he did it in the 43rd minute to put the 2-1.They had tied those of Iraola shortly before, so the Norwegian and his teammates reacted well, although it had to be the third attempt, since Limones stopped very well the first shot of the ’21’, also to the second of Portu, but could not Do nothing before the third attempt of the player assigned by Real Madrid.
The script didn’t change on the resume,with a better Mirands post, which causedstill not seeing Oyarzabal and Odegaard, although their quality gave them to make a good combination between them, but with the first not reaching the measured center that the second sent.
It was not the day of the great star of Zubieta,as it was seen in another pair of actions in which he was not successful with the ball or in a shot, already in the prolongation that left him bitten. Nor had one of his outstanding performances had the Norwegian international, but he tried in the last minute to stand still, but without finding auctioneer.
It was a day yesterday in which another Txuriurdin footballer could have emerged and become the man of the match, butneither Isak, above all, nor Portu, nor Willian Jos and Januzaj when they jumped to the pitch could give the level of other days,as in the case of all the attack for the well planted that they found the whole of Miranda during the 93 minutes during the first duel of the tie.
Oyarzabal and Odegaard, the two great stars of the Real, with the permission of their companions, especially of an extraordinary Alex Isak in the last month,they must appear again in Anduvato help his team achieve the dream of playing the final in Seville.
