Cadiz is welcoming Villarreal to Estadio Ramon de Carranza in round 7 in the Spanish LaLiga.
As the newcomer to LaLiga, Cadiz is doing a fantastic job so far. In their first 5 games, Cadiz has 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses, alongside 6 scored goals, and 6 conceded goals. With 10 points, Cadiz is in 6th place in the LaLiga standings. In their last LaLiga match against Real Madrid on the road, Cadiz has had only 26% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and low 58% of the correct passes. Despite being a much weaker team in this game, Cadiz has won this match 0-1. Pombo, Alejo, Negredo, Lozano, Sanchez have each scored 1 goal for Cadiz so far this season, while Negredo has added 2 assists. Quezade, Mauro, and Carcelen are all injured, and they will not be playing in this game. Cadiz has shown us some great things in their game, but they are not scoring a lot of goals, and they will not always play as good defense as they did against Real Madrid. I think Cadiz has enough quality to stay in LaLiga, but we will not be seeing them this high in the standings for much longer.
Villarreal is playing great soccer this season, and a lot of thanks go to their coach Unai Emery who turned them into this great, competitive team. Villarreal has lost only 1 of their last 8 games, and they have won their latest match in the Europa League against Sivasspor. In the LaLiga standings, Villarreal has 11 points, 8 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals, and they are in 2nd place. Alcacer is the leading goalscorer for Villarreal with 4 goals, while Moreno added 3 goals. Alberto Moreno, Chakla, Parejo, Estupinan, and Gerard Moreno are all injured, while Mori is still questionable for this game. I love Villarreal, and they are proof that smaller teams can do great things in the league dominated by giants like Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona, but they are stretched thin at the moment because of all the injuries. Villarreal will be playing in the Europa League against Qarabag at home next week, but one step at a time. Villarreal is playing fast soccer, and their counterattacks are deadly, and I think there will plenty of them in this match.
Villarreal has won 2 of the 4 games these two teams played against each other, while 2 games ended in a draw. Cadiz is doing some great things, and that will be enough to stay in LaLiga, but I don’t think they can keep up the pace. Villarreal has a lot of injuries, but I think they still have enough quality to beat a team like Cadiz.
