Albacete Balompié and Real Sporting de Gijón drew 1-1 in one of the clashes of matchday 3 of the Liga Adelante. Though the La Mancha team went ahead through Jorge Díaz, the Asturian side managed to equalise at the last minute thanks to a goal from Pablo Pérez, to claim their seventh point in the championship. Albacete, meanwhile, are still without a win.
It was an evenly matched first half, in which the first decent chance on goal did not come until the 32nd minute. Rubén Cruz came very close to putting the La Mancha team ahead with a powerful strike that hit the post. Ten minutes later, Jorge Díaz made no mistake and his goal made it 1-0, giving Albacete a narrow lead going into the break.
After half time, the home side could have extended their lead with another attempt from Rubén Cruz that, once again, hit the woodwork. However, Sporting stepped up the intensity and pressed for the equaliser, finally finding their reward in the 93rd minute with a goal from the young Pablo Pérez.
