Minor setback with a goal in each half from the home team

Cádiz CF played the 29th match of LALIGA EA SPORTS against Real Sociedad, away, lining up with: Conan Ledesma; Iza, Aiham Ousou, Víctor Chust, Javi Hernández; Robert Navarro, Kouamé, Rubén Alcaraz, Sobrino; Juanmi, and Maxi Gómez. Both teams took to the field wearing the LaLiga campaign shirts against racism.

The match started with Real Sociedad looking to maintain ball possession, achieving it but in areas without danger for Cádiz's interests. In the 12th minute, a powerful shot from Brais Méndez marked the first dangerous opportunity of the match. The ball bounced in front of the Argentine goalkeeper, but he skillfully sent it out for a corner.

Cádiz's response came in the 26th minute with a play where they had up to three shots; the last one from Robert Navarro narrowly missed the left post of the home team's goal. Immediately after, Conan denied Oyarzábal's goal with a great save, sending the ball out for a corner. From the corner kick, Real surprised with a quick delivery, enabling Oyarzabal to assist Mikel Merino who scored easily to make it 1-0.

In the 33rd minute, Maxi Gómez had to leave due to injury, and Chris Ramos replaced him. In the 39th minute, the Cádiz forward had a great chance with a header after a wonderful cross from Iza. In the reply, a passing error resulted in a one-on-one for Oyarzabal with Conan, but Víctor Chust appeared at the last moment to send the ball out for a corner.

In the 44th minute, Juanmi was very close to attacking the ball in front of the goal after a chilena pass from Ousou. Earlier, Chris Ramos had another chance with a crossed shot that was saved by the home goalkeeper for a corner. With Cádiz pushing forward, three minutes of added time were played before halftime.

The second half started with the same dynamic as the first ended. Cádiz had the first chance with a loose ball in the box that Kouamé shot over the crossbar.

In the 56th minute, a great save from the Cádiz goalkeeper sent a clear shot out for a corner. Cádiz responded immediately with a long-range shot from Robert Navarro that was saved by the Real Sociedad goalkeeper.

In the 66th minute, a controversial play ended with Chris Ramos having a cut on his eyebrow and a VAR review for a possible red card, as the Cádiz forward was heading towards the home team's goal. The final decision was an offside call and the removal of Zubeldia's yellow card. In the subsequent play, a low cross from Brais Méndez was scored by Zakharyan at the far post.

In the 81st minute, Lucas Pires and Darwin Machis came on for Javi Hernández and Robert Navarro. In the 85th minute, the substitutions were completed with Brian and Sergi Guardiola replacing Sobrino and Sergi Guardiola.

With five minutes of added time, in the first of them, Conan Ledesma made another great save, flying to deny another Real Sociedad goal. With nothing else noteworthy, the match ended.
