Cadiz goes shopping in Barcelona / La Liga / Barcelona-Cadiz (0-1) / – SO FOOT

Barcelona 0-1 Cadiz Goal: Pérez (48th) for Cadiz A holiday Monday even for FC Barcelona. Defeated and humiliated four days ago by Eintracht Frankfurt at Camp Nou, Barça had to move forward this Monday evening in front of their supporters. Nothing happened, as the Blaugrana never managed to circumvent the lock put in place by the Andalusians. Xavi’s flock took time to prove dangerous despite Ousmane Dembélé’s technical recital on his right flank. Gavi flying in all directions, Ferran Torres clumsy and Memphis Depay ghostly: not much smiled on the locals at the start of the game, who even almost got surprised by Cadiz on the counter-attack. Put into orbit by Ruben Sobrino, Lucas Pérez missed the target by a few millimeters on the only big opportunity in the first act (29th). Far from being cautious, the visitors pressed the accelerator on their return from the locker room. Lucas Pérez, again him, this time made the powder speak against an apathetic defense (0-1, 48th), despite the double stoppage of Marc-André ter Stegen. González’s men even came close to scoring the break goal, but Álex Fernández’s attempt came close to the amount of the German (76th). Entering the game earlier in place of his namesake, Luuk de Jong almost put his own up to par but his helmet shot was boxed by Jeremías Ledesma (78th), who also defeated Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the entrance additional time (90th) and kept his clean sheet until the final whistle. Bad accounting operation for Barça which remains second, level on points with Sevilla, while Cadiz achieves a big blow by leaving the red zone and starts the sixteenth week of the championship.
