Liga: Cadiz achieves the feat against Barça and wins at Camp Nou

Real Madrid has almost put an end to the suspense of this end of the season after its comeback against Sevilla FC on Sunday evening (3-2). However, this FC Barcelona-Cadiz was not trivial. A few days after his rout against Eintracht Frankfurt in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, which notably left its mark internally, Xavi and his men had to get up and secure victory against Cadiz in order not to fall back into their early failings. of the season.

Torres lined up, the Catalans quickly wanted to be dangerous and it was the Frenchman who struck first, before seeing Torres take over… but the ball was directly deflected for a corner by the Cadiz goalkeeper. The ex-Rennes was also the only one to bring danger to his side and to be dangerous in a soporific first period, bordering on boredom. Dembélé then forced Ledesma to intervene closely before the break (43rd). Ledesma disgusted Barça While we were waiting for the Blaugranas to wake up in the second half, already whistled by the Camp Nou public for their evening performance, the return from the locker room turned into a nightmare. After a center from Fernandez at the far post, Sobrino found Ter Stegen at close range, but the Catalan goalkeeper could not permanently avoid the danger and Pérez took advantage of a passive Catalan defense to score (1-0, 48th). To everyone’s surprise, the Andalusians kept the score thanks to a great Ledesma, decisive ahead of Dembélé, then L. De Jong (68th and 78th). At the end of the game, Barça still couldn’t do it and were closer to conceding a second goal than to equalizing, but Fernandez missed the target in front of Ter Stegen (76th). Aubameyang missed a last offering in front of a heroic Ledesma this Monday evening (90th). Barcelona therefore concede a sad defeat in front of their home crowd and miss the opportunity to secure second place in La Liga ahead of Sevilla and Atlético, before going to Real Sociedad. For its part, Cadiz carried out a superb operation and left the relegation zone before receiving Athletic Bilbao.
