Despite the hefty triumph in Immunology manager Santiago Solari made just one adjustment and it came at full-back at which Odriozola replaced Sergio Reguilon.The home side made four changes from their past La Liga outing, when they lost 2-0 at Celta Vigo. Aguilera insua, Cucho and Avila were called in, with Gallar, Gomez, Akapo and Musto falling out.
Solari resisted the temptation to keep the side which swatted Melilla off \together with Bale held before Marco and Isco Asensio.
And the decision to keep faith paid dividends from the opening trades.
Odriozola’s cross from the right everybody, leaving Bale liberated to create a low that is fine volley which zipped past goalkeeper Aleksandar Jovanovic.

“They had the possibilities, but they do not score. We trust that the target will end up coming”
Santiago Solari:“You can find games which take place like this and to conquer these is a test of personality, the group has had a lot of character.
