An own goal and Saliou made a new tie possible for Las Palmas in Marbella. So, García Pimienta’s men left their stage without achieving any success, but with very positive feelings where the lack of goals weighed on the islanders.
The match started with Benito Ramírez, after a steal by David Vicente, who made a hole to try his left leg and finally hit the crossbar. The Sports Union has made its intentions clear.
Álvaro Jiménez, unable to control the skin, fired a stunning shot that missed the crossbar. The winger himself suffered a possible penalty which the referees did not see before the yellow protest.
Las Palmas made it difficult for Al Nassr, who showed good defensive organization and also enjoyed their first option before the break. It was through a low shot from his striker Khalid Ghannam, which Álvaro Valles carefully denied at the near post.
The game was very lively in the second half, after a wave of changes in both teams. García Pimienta’s men went ahead with an own goal after a powerful cross from Sergi Cardona. The yellows managed to increase their lead in the 70th minute, after Pejiño’s play, but Marc Cardona’s shot went wide with the goalkeeper beaten.
Minutes later, Al Nassr’s first goal came, with the Saudi team’s second shot of the afternoon. Al Mansour did just that, curling his shot off the post to level the friendly again.
Saliou put Las Palmas ahead again, in a great personal act. However, as the match drew to a close, Al Nassr’s final equalizer came, after a counterattack finished by his expert striker Abu Bakr.
