0-0 | Frenzied share of the points

A highly intense duel ended in a goalless draw at Mestalla.

Back and forth, a game of approaches from the opening whistle. Valencia and Cádiz took to the pitch with the clear intention of going for the three points. With different objectives in the table, but with the mentality of winning the game. As a result, balls were constantly flying in and out of both boxes, with both sides having chances. It was the Cadistas who created the most chances, but they were unable to find the net.

The first big chance of the match had a black and white colour, when Maxi Gómez headed in a cross from Guedes and the ball crashed against the crossbar. Four minutes later, Sergio González's side responded in a similar fashion. Lucas Pérez sent the ball to the edge of the box where Álvaro Negredo rose to meet it. His shot was deflected for a corner by Mamardashvili, who was very active throughout the game.

The first half ended with the score level at 0-0, and the game resumed with Cádiz continuing to put crosses at the home goalkeeper's goal. As the minutes passed, the intensity increased, the temperature rose on the pitch and the game suffered more pauses due to fouls on both sides.

Waiting for an opportunity that could provoke a mistake by their opponents, both teams focused on keeping a clean sheet and counter-attacking. It was the Yellows who were better defensively, with Rubén Sobrino the main protagonist.

Finally, in a frantic six minutes of stoppage time, the score remained unchanged and a goalless draw ended up reigning on the Mestalla video scoreboard. A share of the points for both Valencianistas and Cadistas.
