A long ball from Elustondo found Oyarzabal’s head to score a goal that ended the resistance of Cádiz. In that minute 71, the course of a match changed in which Real Sociedad seemed bored, subdued by the approach of the Andalusian team. In that ball that Cádiz did not know how to defend, he dug his grave after so much work. The fatigue was noticed in the Andalusian team in the final stretch of the game. The changes ordered by Álvaro Cervera did not sit well with him and Real could finally prevail in a very even duel, which moved more where Cádiz wanted than what Real proposed. The Andalusians were left without strength and the Real took advantage of the situation well to take the points in a spark of quality.
Fali had imposed himself on Silva like Cádiz himself against Real Sociedad until in the 64th minute Ledesma saved a goal sung against Isak. Finally, the Basque team had created an opportunity for a perfect competitor such as Cádiz, capable of always taking the game to its own ground, with Fali playing a great game as a defensive pivot and a commendable spirit of fighting and positioning. There the shock turned.
Oyarzabal’s first goal ended the locals. With Cádiz looking for an equalizer, the tall forward Sorloth, who had entered for Isak, made a great play that ended in a clear penalty that Oyarzabal scored with precision. Cala also saw the second yellow. Oyarzabal, who has already reached four goals, joined a Real Sociedad that already has three consecutive wins.
Cádiz had the merit of containing the Real its effective and traditional approach. Cervera’s men had no problem giving the ball to the Basque team, who experienced a true mirage. It seemed that the Real dominated the game, although, actually, the opposite was the case. The visitors’ symphony of short passes distressed a Cádiz with Fali playing as a defensive midfielder and Cala and Mauro, the old guard, perfectly supporting Isak. Withdrawn and orderly, Cádiz did not have the slightest problem to sustain the siege of the royalists, a monopoly of the ball that never resulted in danger in the first half of enormous intensity.
The Andalusian spectators celebrated each intervention of Fali with emotion. The cadista was not only a wall in the center of the field, but a heel hit to Espino in an action that ended up on the crossbar of the Real goal after a failed clearance by Aihen Muñoz. Negredo shot a bit off the mark and the goal didn’t come. Cádiz had contained Real to despair, with footballers like Merino and Portu very thick. Only Isak created some danger with a tight shot from outside the area. In addition, he had created the best chance of the game in this entertaining first half, with few occasions and a lot of equality.
La Real changed the development of the match the final stretch of the crash. Cádiz collapsed after Oyarzabal’s goal, showing its shortcomings against a technically superior rival. Heading first and with a subtle touch when taking the penalty, Oyarzabal was destroying the hopes of the locals. Cádiz was reliable while the forces lasted, but hardly ever knew what to do with the ball in attack. La Real reaches nine points and has not conceded a goal in the last three games, with victories. Cádiz, with a disturbing two out of 12 points, must improve some things. Especially in attack. His proposal happens only to defend himself very well. To win in First it is also necessary to create danger for the rival.
