Goals from Favio and Paco maintain the race for a top three place

Monday 25th February 2019


Goals from Favio and Paco maintained CD Jávea's position in the race for the top three and a chance of promotion to the Third Division. Sitting bottom of the table and adrift by several points, UE CF Gandia put up a spirited fight, making the rojiblancos fight for every ball, and it wasn't the strongest performance from the home side who missed a penalty which might have killed off the opposition much earlier than the final kick of the game.

The first half was dominated by CD Jávea and might have gone ahead just two minutes into the game when they forced a couple of corners. The first, taken by Pau from the left, was headed wide by a defender for a second corner, this time from the right and taken by Paco, which was sent in low and fast, partially cleared by the defence, the ball falling to Palau who unleashed a fierce low shot from 15 yards which flew just wide of the right-hand post. A few minutes later, Favio - making a rare start - chased a loose ball into the area but his attempted shot at full stretch was well-blocked by the keeper.

On 16 minutes Palau had another good chance to put the rojiblancos into the lead, chasing a superb lob over the defence by Ramis, but his snatched shot was just wide of the right-hand post once again. A few minutes later the ever-impressive Ayoze skipped down the right flank, having collected a superb pass from Favio, pulled inside to the edge of the area and under great pressure from the defenders, he managed to get away a powerful shot but it flew harmlessly over the bar. Jávea launched wave after wave of attack with Palau causing great problems but the visiting defence was able to contain him long enough to restrict him to snatched shots. Even goalkeeper Edu was getting in on the action with a long ball which was headed on by Favio for Palau but his final shot was not strong enough to beat the keeper. And so the first half ended goalless but promising much for the second period.

Six minutes into the second half, Jávea finally scored. That man Palau charged down the left flank and put in a low cross that the defence failed to clear and the ball found Favio on the back post who smashed the ball into the back of the net from just a couple of yards. A few minutes later the rojiblancos won a penalty after Ramis was brought down inside the area by the goalkeeper. Paco placed the ball on the spot and looked confident but his low shot to the right was well-saved by the keeper who then blocked the rebound from Cristian and the ball went out for a corner. The first, from Marcos, was pushed out for a second, from Paco, which was easily cleared.

On 61 minutes Gandia forced their first corner of the game - it came to nothing - and a few minutes later recorded their first shot of the game. As the match moved into its final quarter, the opposition was starting to apply a decent amount of pressure of Jávea to find an equaliser. They forced more corners, easily cleared, and a succession of free kicks, restricting Jávea to the occasional break. As the clock ticked towards to end of the game, Gandía forced another corner and their goalkeeper ran up to add to the attack, It was a poor corner and the ball was cleared to Paco who turned and found no-one between him and the goal at the other end of the pitch. And so he ran from the middle of his own half into opposition territory and literally ran the ball into the back of the net to make it 2-0 to Jávea.
