The red card conditioned the whole game

Andorra fell to against Huesca in a match conditioned entirely by an action: in the 27th minute, Alende saw the direct red card for making a foul being, according to the referee, the last man and from there the match changed completely. To make it even more cruel, Huesca scored in the free-kick immediately after and the Tricolours ran out of options.

The start of Eder Sarabia's side was good enough controlling the game and moving the opponent from one side to the other. And Jandro, after a good individual movement and a combinations with Ruben Bover, had a pretty clear option but a home blocked his shot.

A red card that changes everything

The Aragonese side, meanwhile, have very little presence near Nico Ratti's area until everything changed in isolated action. Andorra lost a ball in midfield, Alende cut off danger by tackling Obeng and the referee sent him off. José Marsà was closer to the goal than the home striker, but the referee did not consider it that way and this time VAR did not correct him.

To make the situation even worse, on the same free-kick, Huesca hung the ball in the area and Obeng opened the scoring with a goal that left Andorra very touched. From there, the home side played at pleasure, arrived in danger, and could have doubled their advantage before the break. Nico saved a close-range shot from Elady and the post repelled Gerard Valentin's shot.

On the second half, the Tricolours remained unable to create danger on Alvaro's goal and it was all over when Elady, in another set piece action, finished the game with the final 2-0.
