  • 0

MADRID (AP) — Promoted Cádiz stunned Real Madrid 1-0 to win a Spanish league match at the defending champions for the first-ever time. Led by veteran striker Álvaro Negredo, Cádiz proved more dangerous than Madrid. That was particularly so in the first half when the visitors could have gone into the interval with a two-goal advantage. Negredo set up Anthony Lozano to chip the game’s only goal over Thibaut Courtois in the 16th minute. Karim Benzema had Madrid’s only good chance to equalize when he hit the crossbar with eight minutes remaining. Madrid was undefeated 15 league matches going back to last season. It had won three and drawn one this season.
