A disappointing Friday night at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán as Sevilla FC draw against Cádiz CF. Julen Lopetegui's team went ahead in the sixth minute through a header from Youssef En-Nesyri, but Cádiz would go on to be the better team and found their equaliser through a Lucas Pérez free-kick. We sit with 64 points in the league, with 12 left to play for in the fight for the Champions League places.
Sevilla went ahead early on in a first half which they started well, forcing Cádiz into their box and controlling the ball. Rakitić would whip it in from the corner spot and En-Nesyri got back into the scoring books with a strong header from the penalty spot which went in off the post.
Bono denied Lucas Pérez an earlier equaliser after a brilliant save from close range
Sergio González' side reacted after going one nil down and started to create some chances, but the momentum was soon halted when Sánchez-Martínez blew his whistle for half time. First, José Mari, who sent a powerful shot onto a split ball at the edge of the area, was prevented from bringing the yellows level through Jules Koundé's intervention. Then came more clear-cut warnings from Cádiz and if it wasn't for the brilliance of Bono, Lucas Pérez would have netted an equaliser with his powerful volley inside the area. Papu Gómez would try his luck before the break with a shot that Ledesma was able to see off with a strong punch.
