UD Lanzarote: 1-0 Robinson 34, 2-0 Yunes 67
14th November 2011
The Rojillos will return from Tenerife with a point but their failure to score goals this season is proving to be their number one problem. 13 goals from 15 matches played says it all, with only one club with a worse statistic. On the other hand no other club in the league has a better defensive record than Lanzarote.
Some 0-0 draws don’t tell the full story with near misses, goal line clearances thrilling the paying public. This was not one of those games. The Rojillos will see this match as two points lost but in reality Lanzarote didn’t deserve any better after participating in a dour 90 minutes of football.
The balance of play in the opening 45 minutes was evenly balanced. The Rojillos were first to threaten from Venezuelan Alex Yunes whose strike was brilliantly tipped onto the post by the Tenerife keeper. The only other notable part of the first half was a counter attack by the home side in the 15th minute. Lanzarote´s defence was stretched which resulted in defender Tello forcing a good save from the Rojillos veteran keeper Santi Lampón.
If the supporters thought they had already seen the worst half of the match they were sorely mistaken as both teams managed to put on a worse performance in the second half. Ten minutes from time the locals dominated possession but didn’t create one clear chance. Finally the Ref blew for full time to the relief of what was left of the tired crowd.
Lanzarote host league leaders S.D. Tenisca next Sunday. The La Palma side are flying high with their in form striker Dani López amassing the same amount of goals as the entire Lanzarote squad and are sitting a full 10 points ahead of Lanzarote in the league table.
