Among other recent La Liga football results, Sevilla triumphed marginally by 0-1 at Cádiz in an away fixture on Monday. By winning all three points of this football match, Sevilla cut into Real Madrid’s lead within the Spanish league table.
And it was Lucas Ocampos’ second-half goal that helped pull Sevilla to within five points of Los Blancos, the front-runners.
With this 0-1 away win, Sevilla also opened up an eight-point gap over Real Betis in third place. Atlético Madrid is another point back in fourth, followed by Barcelona trailing by one more point.
Moreover, Sevilla also has one more game to play than league leaders Real Madrid. On the other hand, last night’s hosts Cádiz are now in second-to-last place.
Madrid themselves gave Sevilla the chance to tighten the title race after Carlo Ancelotti’s side lost at Getafe (football scores). This surprising defeat on Sunday ended an unbeaten run of 15 games across all competitions.
La Liga Football Results – Sevilla Triumphed Marginally by 0-1 at Cádiz
For this away game, Sevilla was without seven players, whom the club did not identify, due to their COVID-19 infections. Defender Jules Kounde was also under suspension, while Suso Fernández, Erik Lamela, and Jesús Navas were recovering from injury.
Still, Ocampos broke through Cádiz’s tightly packed defense in the 58th minute. Ivan Romero controlled a loose ball in the area, slipped a pass to Ivan Rakitic. And the latter used one touch to find Ocampos to score from an angle.
“Considering all the players we were missing, we are happy,” Ocampos said. He dedicated his goal, the only one yesterday, to his wife who was also self-isolating after testing positive for COVD-19.
