Nacho was mistaken in an exit by left, he lost the ball and allowed him to Cucho Hernández call # 1 to 0 with a strong shot in the small area. At 25 minutes, to breathe the spot, Isco scored the tie after a good move associated by the left that ended with a center back and the white courtship.

But finally, the insistence gave result.
