Betis places sixth at the expense of a Cádiz in a tailspin


Real Betis Balompié won this Friday 0-2 on their visit to Cádiz CF, with a goal and an assist from Willian José, and was provisionally placed in sixth position in LaLiga EA Sports, after the start of matchday 24 in the rain at the Nuevo Mirandilla Stadium.

The Cádiz team conceded the first goal in the 6th minute, after Johnny Cardoso stole the ball from Lucas Pires on the right wing; The green and white '4', signed this winter, assisted the area for Willian José to execute a right foot that, at mid-height, entered next to the post.

The locals then missed their best chances, including a double by Gonzalo Escalante in the final minutes of the first half, and paid dearly after the break. As soon as he returned from the locker room, after only 23 seconds, Pablo Fornals scored another Betic goal.

Willian José tamed the ball and passed to the edge of the area to his teammate, another winter signing, so that he could make a nice gesture towards the shot; Fornals stepped on the ball with his right foot and settled in until he hit a left-footed shot to the long post, also successful at mid-height.

Cádiz lacked the energy to worry its rival, who thanks to this victory reached 38 points and put pressure on Real Sociedad (37 pts.) and Valencia (35 pts.). A rain of raincoats in stoppage time made Cadista's discomfort clear, as Mauricio Pellegrino's men remain with 17 points in the relegation zone.
