0-0 | Fighting without a prize

The match began with Las Palmas dominating possession, as expected, but without troubling Conan Ledesma's goal. Both Ledesma and Álvaro Vallés were mere spectators in the opening minutes.

However, it was Cádiz that created the clearer chances in the first 45 minutes, with dangerous approaches from Rubén Sobrino, Chris Ramos, and Robert Navarro, testing the visiting goalkeeper and searching for the first goal of the afternoon at the Nuevo Mirandilla.

The most significant moment of the first half involved Joseba Zaldua, Chris Ramos, and Javi Hernández, who finished off a cross from the Cádiz forward, putting the yellow team ahead and igniting the stands. However, moments later, after a VAR review, Soto Grado disallowed the goal due to an offside position by the yellow full-back.

In the second half, the Canarian side came out more energized, playing more advanced triangles and intensifying their pressure on Cádiz's ball distribution. However, Cádiz gradually pinned the island team back, creating dangerous chances, notably a shot by Chris Ramos a quarter of an hour before the end of the match that just missed the crossbar.

Mauricio Pellegrino's team continued to push until the final whistle, even with one man down after Víctor Chust was sent off a little over 10 minutes before the end, but they couldn't find the reward of a goal.
