1-0. 50. Diego Tristán. Ran on to pass from Valerón and fired shot in off post.

Deportivo La Coruña moved back up to fifth in the table after beating Cádiz 1-0 in the Riazor stadium. It was the Andalusians who got off to the better start though, De la Cuesta failing to beat Molina when free in front of goal in the second minute and Oli trying his luck soon afterwards. And the locals didn't get going until shortly before half time, Juanma sending an effort just over the top and Armando saving well from Sergio and Andrade.

Víctor Espárrago had to change his side around before the break when he lost Iván Anía and then De la Cuesta to injuries. But they had more than held their own in the first half, and the demanding local fans gave their team a hard time as they returned for the second half, with whistles in particular for a disappointing Diego Tristán. But just four minutes later the boos turned to cheers as Tristán got on the end of Valerón's lofted pass to fire an impressive first time volley in off the post.

Cádiz tried their best after that, Oli in particular testing Molina before he was replaced by Estoyanoff, but Depor's defence held fast to ensure their fifth win in a seven games. It was another blow for the Gaditanos, who have now only taken two points from their last seven matches, and they drop to within two points of the relegation spots as a result.
