After a chanceless first half, Sevilla Atlético should have taken the lead before Espinar and Pedro settled the tie for the hosts in a clinical five-minute spell

With Sevilla Atlético looking to maintain their lead at the top of the fourth tier, the team suffered its first loss of the season against CA Antoniano. Although Antonio Hidalgo's side deserved more to show for their numerous chances, they were ultimately shown the value of clinical finishing as a ruthless five-minutes from CA Antoniano sentenced the visitors to defeat. 

After a cagey opening exchange in which the two teams fought for control of the centre-cricle without seriously threatening the opposition box, Isaac did well to provide Musa with the first chance for Sevilla Atlético who saw a shot blocked just after the half-way point of the first half. On the stroke of half-time, Capi tried his luck with a shot from the edge of the box that was put behind for a corner by the home defence. 

Isaac then produced a beautiful effort that went close to opening the scoring

In a more open second half, Oso provided a new threat, wasting no time in getting into the opposition box. Capi then tried again from distance with a powerful effort that went narrowly wide before Isaac latched onto a measured cross, once more from Capi, forcing Brian into a smart stop to keep the game scoreless. With the visitors having siezed momentum and showing superior rythm to their opponent, the hosts were fighting to turn the tide of the game. This saw Nacho fail to trouble Alberto Flores with an effort down the middle in CA Anontiano's first attacking foray of the second half. 

With an hour played, Musa appealed for a penalty as he was brought down despite managing to get a shot off. But with the away team now increasingly open, Espinar opened the scoring, leaving Flores no chance with an effort inside the far post to put the hosts ahead. Minutes later, Pedro gave CA Antoniano breathing space by slotting a corner home at the near post. With the game held up by continuous stoppages in the final period of the contest, Sevilla Atlético were not able to narrow the deficit, ensuring a first defeat of the season. The final passage of play then saw Isaac sent off for a second yellow card after an incident with an opponent.
