Cadiz 4-1 Sevilla Atletico: Visitors thumped on Andalusian derby

March 12, 2018 Off By Martin Devlin

In the final fixture of the Saturday matches, Cádiz demolished bottom side Sevilla Atlético 4-1 at the Rámon de Carranza in an Andalucían derby, but the game was closer than the scoreline suggests.

The Segunda’s version of The Yellow Submarine got off to a great start when Álvaro García opened the scoring on 11 minutes. Alberto Perea’s freekick crashed off the bar, then was fed out to the right wing to Salvi Sánchez, whose cross was met by the head of Servando but ricocheted against the post from point blank range and García was on home to blast home the loose ball in a crowded box. Ten minutes later, the home side doubled their advantage through Álex Fernández as he finished off from Jona’s clever scooped pass.

Luis Tevenet’s side signalled their intent to put up a fight against their regional neighbours and right back David Carmona unleashed a piledriver from distance that was very close to troubling home goalkeeper Alberto Cifuentes.

The second half was a very even affair and the action had simmered down until the last 11 minutes when Carlos Fernández pulled one back for the visitors. A flowing counter attack saw Bilel Boutobba feed Carmona on the overlap and his perfectly weighted ball skimmed into the box and was turned in by the striker.

However, this sparked Álvaro Cervera’s side back into life and they regained their two goal cushion when Salvi Sánchez netted on 83 minutes, a fine solo effort as he outfoxed the visiting defence and fired past Fabrice Ondoa.

The scoring was rounded off in stoppage time as Moha Traoré added the fourth. Álvaro García turned provider this time as his cutback from the by-line came all the way to the substitute and the big forward made no mistake from inside the box.
