Bongonda brace moves Cadiz away from La Liga drop zone


Theo Bongonda of Cadiz celebrates after scoring their team's second goal during the LaLiga Santander match between Cadiz CF and Real Valladolid CF at Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla on May 19, 2023 in Cadiz, Spain.

Theo Bongonda scored twice to help Cadiz beat Valladolid 2-0 at home and win the clash between teams trying to avoid relegation from the Spanish league.

The forward struck from long range to break the deadlock in the 69th minute on Friday.

He added the second from the penalty spot in the 76th after Javi Sanchez fouled Anthony Lozano with Cadiz on a counterattack.

Valladolid played the final 10 minutes with 10 men after Martin Hongla received a direct red card for elbowing Lozano in the head while challenging for the ball.

Cadiz’s Ruben Alcaraz missed a first-half penalty when he sent his spot kick off the crossbar.

Cadiz rose to 14th place and four points from 18th-placed Getafe in the relegation zone.

Valladolid are 17th, one point ahead of Getafe before they play already-demoted Elche on Saturday.
