Real Sociedad 0-0 Cadiz – Betting Review


Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 market first. The draw won @ 4.00 as the jolly Real Sociedad never hit their stride and looked extremely flat, letting down favourite backers.

Moving onto the Asian handicap betting for this contest. Cadiz +1 got a full win @ 1.92 thanks to a very strong defensive showing. They actually had the best chance of the evening too.

Looking at The Under/Over goal line last of all.  The Under 2.25 won @ 1.82.

As mentioned in this section of the preview, the game needed a goal to open up, but that goal never came and the result was an extremely dull affair.

Match Summary

A disciplined Cadiz put up a solid showing in San Sebastian and came away with a deserved point, courtesy of a 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad.

It was another setback for the host, who have seen their previously sensational form drop off notably in recent Rounds of La Liga.

Cadiz came with a near perfect defensive game plan which won them the tactical battle. The visitor also showed excellent organisation and commitment to the cause.

The visitor held the Basques at bay and the truth was that they were really put under serious pressure.

The second period was particularly frustrating and unproductive considering one would expect some urgency and intensity in the host attacking. That never came and Cadiz held on rather comfortably, fair score 0-0

With the setback, Imanol Alguacil’s side dropped points for a third match in a row.

In a first half that was cagey from start to finish, neither side was able to generate much quality.

The best chance of an opening goal almost came out of a goalkeeping mistake, with Brais Méndez’s almost catching Cádiz shot-stopper Jeremias Ledesma off his line on a distant free kick.

But much to the relief of Cadiz, Mendez’s shot rebounded off the top of the crossbar.

Seeking three points to sure up their top four hopes and put pressure on the likes of Atletico and Betis, Sociedad tried to increase tempo in the second half.

They briefly managed to make Cadiz worry as Mikel Oyarzabal came within inches of connecting to Takefusa Kubo’s clipped cross into the penalty area.

Gradually however, Cadiz took the sting out of the game and the Basques couldn’t sustain pressure or build momentum

At the opposite end, the visitors came close to an opener when Roger Martí hit the post from close range. It was the best chance in the entire game, but would have been against the run of play at the time. Marti rounded goalkeeper Álex Remiro and really should have scored.

This scare affected Sociedad, who had plenty of the ball and threw men forward, just never had the spark or ideas to work chances.

11 minutes were added on at the end of an uninspiring 90, but the home team never came close and never looked like scoring.
