The ‘rojillos’ get their first victory of the season by beating the ‘yellow submarine’ by 0-2 in its premiere after the so successful promotion
Osasuna achieved victory this Saturday by winning 0-2 in his visit to the Ramón de Carranza stadium against a Cádiz that could not score in its debut after the promotion achieved last season.
Cádiz returned to play a match in the First Division after fifteen seasons, after their last appearance in the 2005-06 campaign.
The second coach, Roberto Perera, led the Cádiz team from the bench due to the absence of the first coach, Álvaro Cervera, confined to his home for positive for coronavirus.
Cádiz’s line-up was made up mostly of players from the squad that achieved promotion last season, with only one signing in the starting eleven, Madrid striker Álvaro Negredo. Eight newcomers in the category started the Cadiz team.
In Osasuna, only one reinforcement among the eleven chosen, the left-back Juan Cruz, with ten players from the previous season in the line-up. The most notable absence of the Navarrese, that of Argentine striker Luis Chimy Ávila, due to injury.
In the first half, Osasuna went ahead early after an error by Sergio González in Cádiz, with theft by the Navarrese and a deep pass from Over Sanjurjo to Adrián López, who stood before David Gil and beat him to open the scoreboard (m .9). Cádiz tried it with a shot from Jorge Pombo that went wide (m.17).
The Aragonese, very active, tried his luck again at the edge of the break, with a shot from the left that Sergio Herrera repelled (m.36).
In added time (m.47), Adrián enjoyed a promising action to have increased the Osasuna score.
In the second half, Cádiz reinforced their lead with the entry of Serbian Filip Malbasic to accompany a despondent Negredo.
Osasuna, very cohesive, prevented Cádiz from approaching the Navarre area with danger, despite having the locals more presence in the field.
After a quarter of an hour after the restart, the Cervera-Perera duo refreshed the central plot of the wide-area with the entries of the Danish Jens Jonsson and the Madrid Álex Fernández.
Cádiz had two sparks, first in a shot by Salvador Sánchez Ponce ‘Salvi’ who was caught by Herrera (m.71); and then in another shot from Pombo that the visiting goalkeeper sent for a corner (m.72).
Osasuna scored his second goal after a throw-in, with an extension by Lucas Torró and a shot by Rubén García (m.80) to put the score very uphill for Cádiz in the final stretch of the match.
