Castilla had come into the game having beaten Badajoz, group leader, 3-1, and celebrated their 40th goal of the season – more than any side in Segunda B – with vigour.
Talavera were no mugs themselves, beginning the day with a chance of also making the play-offs and on an unbeaten run of six. The two sides drew the return fixture 2-2 at Valdebebas back in April.
Castilla last competed in Segunda back in 2014, and achieving promotion would be a serious feat for Raul. Madrid’s legendary striker has been the man leading Castilla since 2019, and is keen on taking his coaching career seriously.
