Cadiz had a strong first half, but were unable to score. After the break, Fede San Emeterio hit a low shot over the bar, but soon after Barcelona struck. The referee, Cerro Grande, just shakes his head at the cries of the away fans. Xavi was already preparing to bring on three super-subs when Gavi burst through the middle after receiving a pass from Raphinha. The resulting cross cannoned out to Frenkie de Jong.
