Spanish Soccer League, La Liga : Barcelona Vs Cadiz Match Ended In Goalless Draw

Barcelona's stumbling form continued as they were held to a disappointing Goalless Laliga draw at Cadiz and ended the game with 10 men after Frenkie De Jong was sent off.

Both sides struggled to create chances in a dull opening period, but the match came alive after the break.

Cadiz Striker Alvaro Negredo forced marc-andre ter stegen into a fine stop seconds after the restart, before Barcelona's Memphis Depay failed to make contact with a Luuk De Jong cross with the Goal gaping.

Depay was denied by a smart stop from Jeremias Ledesma as Barcelona looked to take control of the game, but things went downhill in the 65th minute when Midfielder de Jong was shown a second yellow card in four minutes for a lunging tackle.

koeman's side were indebted to ter Stegen as he denied salvi Sanchez one-on-one and Ruben Sobrino fired the rebound wide with the goal gaping.

Depay missed a golden opportunity to win it for Barcelona in the fourth minute of stoppage time following a charge upfield by defender gerard pique, but dragged his shot wide and the spoils were shared.
