Sevilla reacts in time and rescues a point against Cádiz

The Andalusian derby of the day ended with two goal tie at the Nuevo Mirandilla stadium, where Cádiz took the lead with goals from Chris Ramos and Darwin Machís and Sevilla avoided a knockout with Ocampos and Rakitic’s goals.

Cádiz faced the game with four new additions to its starting lineup. Lucas Pires came on at left back, with Javi Hernández centering his position and Jorge Meré left out. Roger, Machís and Alcaraz also returned to the eleven.

On the Sevilla side, three players who did not start against Arsenal were part of the starting eleven: Juanlu, Suso and Mariano.

The match started with great tension, with the locals asking more punishment for Sergio Ramos after a scuffle with Roger Martí that did not happen to adults.

Very soon the yellows scored. Chris Ramos slipped between the Sevilla centre-backs, taking advantage of an assist from Roger and beat Nyland with an accurate shot. He celebrated with rage, looking at the sky, just eight minutes after the minute of silence observed in memory of his grandfather.

Cádiz, comfortable with the score, played direct football against the more elaborate game of Sevilla, which unsuccessfully sought the local goal.

Sevilla was not comfortable and A very well positioned Cádiz was trying to take advantage of the blow, without leaving spaces and pressing with intensity. In that scenario, before half an hour the second local goal arrived. A poor release of the Sevilla ball allowed Iván Alejo to be robbed and Roger gave the goal again to a teammate. This time he left Darwin Machís one-on-one with the goalkeeper, who did not forgive.

Just two minutes later Sergio Ramos scored for Sevilla, but The target was not validated due to offside by Ocamposwho did not touch the ball but could interfere with the vision of the Cádiz goalkeeper.

Yes, the score went up to 2-1 after a header from Lucas Ocampos, who with strength and placement beat Ledesma taking advantage of a measured center from Juanlu. A jug of cold water for the local team and wings for a Sevilla that is increasingly dominating the ball.

Cádiz was able to withstand the result during the remaining seven minutes of regulation time and another seven of added time, arriving at half-time with the score in its favor.

Sergio González reinforced Cádiz for the second half with the entry of Meré for a Fali hit and Sobrino for Machís. However, he did not change the script and the first Cadista to have a notable intervention was Ledesma with a fist clearance.

Even more decisive was Nyland in the 52nd minute. Cádiz made three consecutive shots, but He couldn’t beat the Sevilla goalkeeperwho won the game by demonstrating his reflexes.

Each team was clear about its plan. While Cádiz waited behind in search of a counterattack, Sevilla played and played, elaborating their game more.

Shortly before game time, Diego Alonso took a risk and placed two forwards on the field, making Mariano and En-Nesyri pair up. And just a couple of minutes later The tie came, the work of Rakitic with a soft volley that beat Ledesma.

With half an hour left to break the tie, Sevilla kept going and Cádiz went from strength to strength.

Again Ocampos tried his luck headfirstwithout success, when the match entered its final stretch and the tie still reigned in the Nuevo Mirandilla.

Victims of fatigue, both teams lowered their intensity in the final stretch, in which there were hardly any approaches to the areas.
