Castilla have produced the goods when it mattered with a sublime display. The academy side had no problem getting the better of Cartagena in the first leg of round one of their play-off for promotion to Segunda. With an auspicious atmosphere at the Alfredo Di Stéfano, José Manuel Díaz’s boys were disciplined and ruthless up top to take a 3-1 advantage in the tie. Dani Gómez (2) and Cristo netted the goals in a sensational first half for the madridistas, before Santi Jara cut the deficit for the visitors on 86’. Next weekend, the Whites will look to seal qualification at the Cartagonova.
