Cádiz CF faced Granada CF in the 30th matchday of LALIGA EA SPORTS at home, lining up with: Conan Ledesma; Iza, Fali, Víctor Chust, Javi Hernández; Robert Navarro, Kouamé, Rubén Alcaraz, Sobrino; Juanmi, and Chris Ramos.

The match started with Cádiz dominating possession, but without chances in either area. The first opportunity came for Cádiz in the 15th minute; a cross from Javi Hernández and a header from Chris Ramos was caught by the visiting goalkeeper.

The Cadista team continued to accumulate chances, including a cross-shot from Alcaraz, a half-turn shot from Juanmi, and an individual effort from Robert Navarro that ended with a low shot caught by Batalla.

Cádiz CF continued to press on Granada's goal without finding the breakthrough. With that dynamic, the first half ended.

The second half began with the entry of Álex for Kouamé, who had to be treated during the first half. Granada CF made two substitutions: Pellistri and Gumbau came on for Hongla and Villar.

In the 50th minute, a magnificent cross from Alcaraz found Robert Navarro, who controlled inside the box and volleyed with precision into the top corner, giving the Cadista team a 1-0 lead.

In the 66th minute, Fali could not continue on the field and was replaced by Ousou. Granada responded with a free-kick saved by Conan, leading to a corner. Miguel Rubio almost scored from the resulting corner.

In the 75th minute, Lucas Pires and Alejo replaced Sobrino and Robert Navarro on the field. Cádiz continued to press on the visitor's goal, first with a powerful shot from Iza that narrowly missed the crossbar and then with a one-on-one chance for Chris Ramos, saved by the goalkeeper for a corner. Juanmi headed in from the corner, but the goal was disallowed by the referee.

Immediately after, Chris Ramos had another chance with a left-footed shot just over the crossbar. In the 84th minute, he was replaced by Sergi Guardiola. With six minutes of added time, Cádiz CF secured the victory to stay in the fight for survival.
