Martin Ødegaard and his Real Madrid Castilla teammates couldn't keep the 0-1 lead they earned in the 6th minute and ended up losing the first game of the Playoffs for promotion against a very aggressive UCAM Murcia side who managed to end the game with no players sent off.

Castilla will have a golden opportunity to win at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in order to achieve promotion to Segunda División, which was the team's main goal when the season started.

Ramis' men proved to have more quality than UCAM throughout the entire match, so overcoming their deficit could be something doable, but unfortunately UCAM made the best out of their chances and secured a very important comeback win that will allow them to defend at the Di Stéfano.

Castilla coach Ramis complained about the referee after the match indicating that it was "very surprising" to see Murcia finishing the game with 11 men on the pitch. The coach praised the effort of his players and said that they "kept their minds in the game even after some of those tackles."
