In Sunday’s match of the tenth round, Fortuna of the first Spanish league, Podbeskidze Bielsko-Biacha, beat Resovia 2-0. Juan Roman and Jorge Mirpaszueli scored goals for the hosts, who played in the double after Kamil Belinsky for more than half of the match.
There is an old saying in sports that walls help hosts sometimes. In the match between Podbeskidzie and Resovia, the locals were supported by … a malfunctioning “mushroom” watering the lawn, which turned out to be one of the main “champions” on Sunday afternoon. Already in the second minute, Resovia defender Alexander Komor lost the ball when it unexpectedly stopped in a pool of water in front of the penalty area, which Joan Roman took advantage of. The Spanish midfielder gave the Highlanders an accurate shot from distance and gave his team a quick lead.
Podbeskidzie had all the trump cards in his hand – a positive result, initiative in possession and plenty of offensive quality in the middle of the field, where in the absence of injured Matthew Skalet, coach Piotr Jawny found a place for Romain, Michai Janotta and Dominic Frelick. The next goals seemed to be just a matter of time, but after half an hour of playing there was an unexpected development. After a pass from Giorgi Merebaszvili, Kamil Biliński found himself alone with Branislav Pindrochem, but took the ball poorly and tried to save the situation, hitting his sole in the face of interfering goalkeeper Resovia. The seemingly innocuous entry turned out to be brutal and, after analyzing the VAR, showed Podbeskidzie a red card to the Podbeskidzie captain. – It was a dynamic business, they both went to the ball. I know Camille and I am convinced that there was no malice – coach Johnny confirmed.
