Cadiz secure La Liga survival boost with Real Madrid draw

Struggling Cadiz have put themselves in the fight for La Liga safety this season following a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid.

Los Blancos were unable to break down a stubborn resistance in Andalucia as Carlo Ancelotti’s much changed side gear up for the Champions League final.

However, despite making a string of changes at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla, Real Madrid eased into a early lead via Mariano Diaz’s instinctive finish.

That setback sparked the hosts into life before the break and Ruben Sobrino fired home a spectacular leveller.

With the momentum changing for Cadiz after the restart, they were offered a perfect chance to win it – and confirm their survival – but Andriy Lunin kept out Alvaro Negredo’s spot kick.
