Alaves succumbed to a home defeat against Cádiz at the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Sunday. Alaves were looking to get back their winning ways, following a previous defeat to Levante while Cádiz secured a point against R Madrid in their previous match. This left, Alaves and Cádiz are 20th (31 points) and 17th (39 points) in the league respectively, after a total of 38 matches.

Following a goalless first half, Cádiz continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Anthony Lozano finding the net at the 76 minute mark, leaving the final score at 1-0.
