Cadiz right in relegation fight after La Liga loss


Pablo Maffeo of RCD Mallorca and Ruben Sobrino of Cadiz CF competes for the ball during the LaLiga Santander match between RCD Mallorca and Cadiz CF at Visit Mallorca Estadi on May 12, 2023 in Mallorca, Spain.

Mallorca have beaten Cadiz 1-0 in the Spanish league to deny the visitors the chance to move further away from the relegation zone.

Friday’s defeat left Cadiz in 15th place but only one point above 18th-placed Getafe in the relegation zone.

Pablo Maffeo scored in the 16th minute when the midfielder finished off a powerful header by Iddrisu Baba that goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma did well to push onto his crossbar.

Mallorca remained in 12th place after Javier Aguirre’s side locked down their defence to secure the win.

Cadiz are in a pack of teams fighting to stave off demotion as the season enters its final weeks.

The Andalusian side can be overtaken by Valladolid, Valencia and Getafe if they win their respective games this round.

Cadiz and Valladolid have 35 points while Valencia and Getafe are on 34. Espanyol, in second-to-last place, have 31, while last-placed Elche are already relegated.
