Barcelona again dropped a point at their home ground, Camp Nou, after drawing 1-1 against Cádiz. A penalty was netted by the Barca captain, Lionel Messi, during the first-half penalty, which was later cancelled out by Aleix Fernández, scoring a penalty in the injury time. Later on, Barca was denied two goals ruling them out as offside after Frenkie de Jong and Pedri’s incorrect runs.
In the first half after netting the penalty, Barça maintained their continuous attack and could have added two more to the score with the help of De Jong and Pedri. Still, unfortunately, their goals were ruled out, claiming off for offside, which also included a peculiar moment when Antoine Griezmann came in the way of Frenkie. This shot was on its way to the back of the net, which was later made offside by Dest when he assisted Pedri.
Riqui Puig was sent to the ground in the late second half, and almost was on the verge of scoring an amazing goal with five minutes in hands to go, but Barca could not hold up their lead due to a very silly foul by Lenglet that resulted in a penalty for Cadiz, where they equalized the match. Later on, Barca couldn’t manage to win.
Although Barcelona tried to take over the control early and progressed ahead as Lionel Messi scored from the penalty spot to break his record of 506th LaLiga appearance. But eventually, they were held to a draw.
After numerous goals and assists and making the list of records longer all these years, as during the match against Cadiz, where Messi was leading the team, has broken an astounding record regarding his appearance for the Catalonian giants, Fc Barcelona too, as he has crossed Xavi being the player with the most appearances for Barca.
Also, Messi went on being the second player to score 60 penalties in LaLiga after Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 61 for Real Madrid.
