Lanzarote Football, Union Viera 2 UD Lanzarote 1

The Rojillos are really going to have to do something about their horrendous away form next season. In their last 13 outings they have picked up a measly four points and things got no better against strugglers Unión Viera.

UD Lanzarote 6 apr 2014

Lanzarote began the match the much better of the two sides. In the 20thminute the Rojillos deservedly took the lead when midfielder Javi Betancort won the ball off a defender and his perfectly placed pass across goal was gift wrapped for Lanzarote´s leading striker Rosmen to tap in and send the Rojillos into a 0-1 lead.

The Gran Canarian side woke up after this setback and began to threaten. Ten minutes before half time and the home side were level. A cross swung in was met by striker Samuel who headed across the goal and into the far post leaving the Rojillos keeper no chance.
