0-0 | Intense tie to continue scoring points
Espanyol and Cádiz share the points in a vibrant duel at the RCDE Stadium.
The RCDE Stadium hosted a match with the aroma of a final with everything that Espanyol and Cadiz had at stake on the road to salvation. Luis García's team, defending their role as locals, entered the field a little more incisive, although without causing danger to Conan Ledesma's goal. The first chance of the match came from the feet of Rubén Alcaraz for the Cadistas. A long-range shot went wide.
The yellows were growing on the pitch with the minutes and, before reaching the half hour mark, Sergi Guardiola had the clearest chance. Two attempts at a shot in the area ended in a goal kick. The chances came and went in dribs and drabs for both teams, although neither of the two avoided the tie when the referee signaled the way to the locker room.
The second half started with a lot of Espanyol's bite, as Joselu, before reaching the hour mark, would crash a ball against the post and the rejection would give a series of dangerous rejections for the 'Perico' team. Minutes later, the striker had a goal disallowed for offside. A stretch of twenty minutes after the restart in which the Catalan team carried a lot of danger to Ledesma's goal.
The Cadiz team was going to have its chances. Especially when Espanyol bet everything on the victory in the final minutes. Taking advantage of the spaces, the Cadiz players had in the boots of Ivan Alejo the opportunity to take the three points in stoppage time. At the end of the game, with the scoreboard showing a scoreless draw, the points were shared.
