Cádiz and Espanyol breathe after winning their vital appointments against Valencia and Getafe

Jackson double for Villarreal’s victory over Celta (3-1)


Cádiz CF and RCD Espanyol caught air this Sunday in their bid to escape relegation, thanks to their respective victories against Valencia CF (2-1) and Getafe CF (1-0) who continue to show concern to their hobbies, after the dispute of the 32nd day in LaLiga Santander.

The Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla opened the round of Sunday games and enjoyed the goals from Gonzalo Escalante, header from a set piece just before the break, and from Sergi Guardiola, finishing from point-blank range with his left foot in the small area as soon as he started the second time.

Samu Lino’s goal at 51′, taking advantage of an error by the local goalkeeper Jeremías Ledesma, was insufficient for a Valencia that remained seventeenth with 33 points. For its part, the team from Cádiz reached 35 points with this good harvest.

In that fight not to be relegated, the subsequent duel at the RCDE Stadium was vital. With more faith in the parakeet club, the final 1-0 result was the work of Joselu when he converted a penalty in the 38th minute, thanks to a handball by Carles Aleñá whistled at the behest of the VAR. That placed Espanyol with 31 points, matched by a ‘Geta’ that José Bordalás is training again.

On the other hand, at the Estadio de la Cerámica, the locals had a relatively quiet afternoon thanks to Nico Jackson’s double in just 12 minutes of the match. Although Jorgen Strand Larsen scored the goal of honor for Celta Vigo on 29′, Ramón Terrats made it 3-1 for Villarreal, thus consolidating their fifth position (53 points).
