The Barcelona loses more and more ground in LaLiga Santander after falling 2-1 this Saturday during their visit to Cádiz, corresponding to matchday 12 of the contest, thus suffering its fourth setback of the season and staying very far from the first places of the classification.
Without half a dozen fixed headlines, Cádiz had his intention very clear against a team from the Barça poster. Cervera and his maxim of defending first and then the rest challenged a Barça with great need. The game should at least be quiet for Koeman’s men, if it weren’t for the fact that in the first corner against, at nine minutes, they received 1-0 by Álvaro.
A classic ball combed at the first post an unfortunate clearance by Mingueza, who called for a foul without an answer, directly against Ter Stegen. The goal certainly strengthened local confidence and their idea of holding out in the trench. Barça did not do well with the positional attack and hardly generated danger in 45 minutes.
The visiting team looked for gaps at an insufficient rate in local commitment, to help in each coverage and not give away an inch. Messi’s imagination seemed key, although the ’10’ does not waste joy this campaign. The captain culé caused a pass of the death of Dest that Griezmann did not find by little.
The Argentine was also key in the search for spaces, to find Alba in the center of the side that ended in Alcalá’s own goal. However, Cádiz’s intention had already changed in part, especially through Perea, trying to take advantage of Barça’s logical anxiety to go up.
Those of Álvaro Cervera arrived, but it was not necessary to create, They gave it between Alba, a pass that is not given to a friend, Lenglet, who did not know what to do with the ball, and Ter Stegen. Negredo, with a minute on the lawn, he kept the ball and made it 2-1. The typical attack of pride and despair returned to Barça that did not change the score in his visit 15 years later to Carranza.
With this result, Cádiz is fifth with 18 points, while Barça is still a poem and sees the league leadership 12 units away.
