Joserra in the first half, Óscar and Álex in the second half
Just as the halt time whistled loomed, Joserra opened the Pepineros' account in the 42' and his own personally as a blanquiazul footballer. As the second half got underway, Leganés did not hesitate to double their lead, with Carlos Martínez's supply to Marc Echarri and Óscar developing into the Pepineros' second goal of the night by the 54'.
As the lead grew, the reserve side looked to establish more control over the ball and stronger possession play. Patience paid off as, in the 64', Álex maintained his composure once he was through, alone with the keeper, to put the game beyond Luanco's reach and make it 3-0. The Pepineros scored once again through Marc Echarri, but the referree disallowed the forward from making the goalsheet.
C.D. Leganés collect their third victory of the season, as they break their three game streak without a win to notch 11 points in nine games. Their next league encounter will be on Sunday 7th November against U.D. Llanera.
