RCD Espanyol Femení fell to 3-2 defeat against CA Osasuna on Sunday, missing out on points due to misfortune in front of goal.
The game began with an early setback, as a scramble inside the area saw Osasuna take the lead. A second goal was added just moments later, when the home side outnumbered Espanyol on an attack.
Adriana Martín brought the team back into the game thanks to a spectacular shot that surprised opposition goalkeeper Maitane. From that moment on, the pericos found their confidence again, and even benefitted from some luck in the final stages of the first half when an opportunity for Osasuna went begging.
Espanyol came out after the break determined to have more control of the game. Adriana equalised by converting a penalty, after a clear handball from a defender inside the area.
Nayadet Opazo, off a free kick, shot just wide, and the momentum was in the visitors' favour, but a controversial third goal for Osasuna gave them the lead again. A foul on goalkeeper Emily Dolan was not called in the buildup, and the strike went onto the scoreboard.
In the final minutes Judit Pablos came close to an equaliser, but was denied by the post. The woodwork again came into play on the final move, when Adriana's effort was kept out, as the Femení fell to defeat in Pamplona.
