Youth and hunger for victory won over experience. A magnificent Real Madrid Castilla stormed over Cadiz with a spectacular first half and have one foot in the Second Division, hoping to seal the deal next week at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium.
It took Castilla only 17 minutes to net the opener through Joselu, who after receiving the ball from Mandi dribbled past his marker and netted a nice shot.
Cadiz reacted and the match became a true spectacle, with both sides reacting to each other's ventures in attack. Halfway through the first half, Morata asked for a penalty to be conceded to no avail, and Cadiz did the same on the 29-minute mark. Then, Carvajal ran down the right wing and passed the ball back to Joselu, who netted an amazing backheel shot.
Juanfran had a chance to net a third, but his shot was off target (37') and followed by a local counterattack that forced keeper Jesus to make a solid save to clear Yuste's header (45’).
Cadiz pressurised the visitors after half-time trying for a comeback that would allow them to remain undefeated at their stadium this season. They had several chances, but Jesus and the defence worked incredibly hard to clear them all.
Local coach Jose Gonzalez made Juanjo come on to toughen his team's attack, and Toril responded by making Alex come on for Jese to strengthen midfield (78'). Carvajal again ventured in attack down his wing and passed the ball to Joselu, who again used his heel to assist Morata in the team's third a final strike.
