In Anoete, Real Madrid were happy again. He thrashed and qualified for the third straight season for Europe after defeating Cadiz, who missed the goal of getting away from the fire and at the same time sentencing Levante and Alaves. A superb performance by David Silva disrupted the plans of the Cadiz team, which has been whiter than usual in recent days.

If football were analyzed only in detail, looking at it with an inverted spyglass, one could say that the first part between Real Sociedad and Cadiz was decided by centimeters; those that Sorlot lacked in order not to be out of the game in his goal, and those that Alarcon left in order not to be out of the game in the Idrissi goal, in what could be and was not. But that would be a simplistic look at what that first half was like, because, in fact, what this partial decided was the great football of David Silva, who inspires and dedicates himself to concerts on the lawn from time to time in the afternoon .
This gushing canary talent was enough to handcuff Cadiz, who couldn’t give him an answer. Learning tricks is difficult, so Sergio’s wards were able to get together only in the last five minutes, when Real Madrid had already managed to score their goal a long time ago.
The Andalusian team wanted to keep the continuity in their best mood early in the second half, but Silva reappeared at his best now that the season is on the decline and, using a setup Imanol set up, caught the ball on the edge of the terrain and fell before Chust’s ride. The penalty was converted by Januzaj.
With an already very clean score, Silva continued to give lessons while Cadiz was a pact of impotence. Sergio showed all his attacking power, but Real restored his rocky version, which allowed him to add his twentieth game with a clean sheet, a feat that the San Sebastian team had not achieved since Luis Arconada defended the net in Atocha.
In addition, already at the limit of the rebate, Porto imposed a penalty, for which he himself was responsible, and ended a happy day for his fans, causing anxiety in Cadiz, who will have to continue rowing until the last day.
Villarreal lose to Vallecas
Villarreal defeated the too relaxed Rayo in Vallecas (1-5). Having done their homework, Andoni Iraola’s team lacked competitive tension in the first half. Rayist’s defense is quite contemplative, giving the U-boat every opportunity to score. He added four goals before the break, and could have been more. The punishment spurred the Madrid team into the second stage, but their pride was not enough to make up for the result against an opponent who is looking to secure a place in Europe.
Raista’s protective softness became characteristic of 45 minutes. Dimitrievski suffered every time Villarreal crossed the ball. Pedraza demonstrated this with his first corner; He finished off from the edge of a small area without disheveledness and without defenses around. They had fun. Although this created a spark of rage in Rayo that equalized the score, it only hit Sergi Guardiola’s goal. After an unsuccessful first shot, he beat Rulli for the second time.
But Rayo was a fickle team, pure defensive jelly, who missed second in another very close range header from Foyt. He entered like a projectile, and the defenders watched. Alcácer then delivered his part. He was able to beat the defender, get past the goalkeeper and shoot from close range. Already in stoppage time, Pau finished off Parejo’s free-kick, which stunned the defenders.
In the second part, Rayo wanted to catch up, at least at stake. Villarreal allowed themselves to be enveloped, but it was just fireworks. For Catena, the referee made his day bitter by nullifying a goal with an armbar after five minutes back and forth with VAR. Then, in the end, Pedraza completed the victory, although the rayista fans were on another: “El Rayo es de Primera”, they sang. It is something.
