Cadiz demands a second penalty as the game comes to a contentious conclusion.
Lunin saved Real’s point by rescuing the one he had conceded to Negredo, and he and his teammates are fortunate to have returned to the capital with a point.
Cadiz’s attacks weren’t nearly as effective as they had been in the first half, but with one game remaining to stay in the top flight, Los Piratas have demonstrated they have what it takes to score goals against the best!
CADIZ (4-4-2): Jeremias Ledesma; Carlos Akapo, Luis Hernandez, Fali, Alfonso Espino; Ruben Sobrino, Alex Fernandez, Ruben Alcaraz, Oussama Idrissi; Lucas Perez, Alvaro Negredo.
REAL MADRID (4-3-3): Andriy Lunin; Lucas Vazquez, Eder Militao, Jesus Vallejo, Nacho; Federico Valverde, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Rodrygo, Mariano, Marco Asensio.
GOOOAAAALLLL!!! Real score first!!! After repelling five minutes of Cadiz’s attack, back come Real as Rodrygo bursts down the left. He evades tackle after tackle before squaring Mariano in the box, and the striker taps home an easy finish to put Los Blancos 1-0 up!
GOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!! What an equaliser!!!! Militao heads an aerial ball away from the box, but Sobrino picks it up, cutting across the box before smashing a shot beyond Lunin, off the crossbar, and into the back of the net! 1-1, and this game is proving to be a classic!
So, what’s next?
Despite a spirited performance from Cadiz, they come away with just a point and drop into the relegation places following Mallorca’s late win over Rayo Vallecano.
The relegation battle is set to go to the final day, where Cadiz will play Alaves, which Levante relegated in their concurrent fixture.
If Cadiz can push the top side in the league to the wire, though.
They’ll more than fancy their chances against the side at the bottom of La Liga.
