Barcelona stunned by Cádiz in match marked by fans’ protest

Baku, April 19, AZERTAC

Barcelona’s slim hopes for the Spanish league title all but ended after losing to Cádiz 1-0 at home on Monday in a match marked by protesting fans, according to AP.

The fans were upset at Barcelona allowing Eintracht Frankfurt supporters to take over the Camp Nou Stadium in a Europa League loss last week.

The first ever home loss to relegation-threatened Cádiz left Barcelona 15 points behind league leader Real Madrid with six rounds left. The Catalan club, sitting in second place, has a game in hand but time is running out on its quest to win the league for the first time in three seasons.

Barcelona hadn’t lost consecutive games at home since 2003, according to Spanish media.

“It was a bad week for us but we have to move on and try to change this dynamic as soon as we can,” Barcelona coach Xavi Hernández said. “We continue with our objective of securing a Champions League place.”
