Villarreal missed today, Sunday, the opportunity to lead the Spanish Football League by tying without goals with Cadiz, in a rare match, to increase the chance of Real Madrid continuing at the top of the League since its victory over Barcelona on Saturday.
Alvaro Negredo appeared to give the lead to Cadiz, as he put the ball into the net after a free kick, but the video assistant referee (Var) canceled the goal due to the presence of Anthony Lozano – who scored the winning goal over Real Madrid in the last round – in an offside position.
Otherwise, Cadiz did not create a threat to Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo, ending the match without any shot on goal, while Villarreal hit only two balls.
Villarreal is in second place with 12 points from 7 games, without any victory outside the home, while Cadiz comes fifth, with 11 points, and is still looking for his first victory at home since returning to the Lights League.
Real Madrid top the league with 13 points from 6 games, after winning 3-1 against Barcelona in the summit match on Saturday, but Real Sociedad can regain the lead if they beat Huesca today.
Real Madrid lost its first home last week at home to Cadiz team, 0-1, after a lackluster performance by the royal players.
