If it is up to the Spanish football club Cádiz, La Liga will be halted until an appeal to the sports tribunal CAS has been heard. The club, which is in danger of relegation, wants the result of the duel with Elche (1-1) to be canceled due to an arbitral error. The Spanish Football Association RFEF rejected the request, after which the club is now looking higher at the CAS.
Cadiz led 1–0 in the relegation game with Elche when Ezequiel Ponce equalized in the 81st minute. That player had previously been in an offside position. Neither the referee nor the VAR saw a problem, after which the game ended in 1-1. The RFEF rejected the requirement to replay the last 9 minutes at 1-0.
Cádiz reported in a statement on Wednesday that it had gone to the CAS “because it has suffered serious damage”. The club stands by its request that the last minutes be played over because of the “unfortunate and negligent behavior of the refereeing team, especially the VAR.”
Cadiz are currently sixteenth, 2 points above the relegation zone.
