Unal converts two penalties as 10-man Getafe earn draw


Enes Unal of Getafe CF (C) celebrates with teammates after scoring the team's second goal from the penalty spot during the LaLiga Santander match between Cadiz CF and Getafe CF at Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla on March 10, 2023 in Cadiz, Spain.

Enes Unal scored his second penalty in the final kick of the match to snatch 10-man Getafe a 2-2 draw with Cadiz in the Spanish league.

Cadiz were eyeing a win that would have lifted them to 12th until a final long ball by the undermanned Getafe ended up landing on the arm of Cadiz defender Luis Espino.

After a video review, the referee sent Unal to the spot where he converted to split the points.

The Turkish striker has achieved back-to-back braces and 12 goals in the league this season.

Ruben Sobrino headed Cadiz in front in the 39th minute. Unal levelled from the penalty spot following a handball by Gonzalo Escalante in the 61st.

Ruben Alcaraz made it 2-1 for Cadiz in the 82nd when he converted a spot kick after Domingos Durante was sent off for a second yellow card for a handball.

Cadiz’s Iza Carcelen was shown a direct red card after the final whistle for his aggressive behaviour towards a Getafe player.

Cadiz and Getafe are in 15th and 16th spots respectively, as both fight to avoid relegation.

Cadiz, who started the season with five consecutive losses, are now unbeaten in 10 games at their Nuevo Mirandilla Stadium.
