Cadiz is welcoming Barcelona to Estadio Ramon de Carranza in round 12 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Cadiz has had a solid season so far, but they haven’t won any of their last 3 games while losing 2 of those three. During this stretch, Cadiz has scored only 1 goal while conceding 6 goals. With 15 points, 9 scored goals, and 12 conceded goals, Cadiz is in high 6th place in the LaLiga standings. In their last game against Elche on the road, Cadiz was a slightly better team with 53% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Cadiz was losing in the 38th minute, but they got lucky because Elche conceded a red card in the first half. Cadiz was able to tie the score in the 55th minute, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Negredo and Sanchez have each scored 2 goals for Cadiz so far this season. Alvaro Negredo has also added 3 assists. Quezada, Jose, and Cala are all injured, while Negredo is still questionable for this game. Cadiz is doing well so far, but I don’t think they will stay up there for much longer, and I think we could see Cadiz slowly dropping in the standings.
Barcelona is in great form, and they have won 5 of their last 6 games. Barcelona has dominantly won their last 3 games while scoring 11 goals and conceding 0 goals during that stretch. Barcelona has also won all of their games in the Champions League, including the one earlier this week against Ferencvarosi on the road. Barcelona is slowly improving in the LaLiga standings, and they are now in 7th place with 14 points, 19 scored goals, and 9 conceded goals. Fati and Messi have each scored 4 goals for Barcelona so far, while Griezmann added 3 goals. Jordi Alba has added 3 assists. Fati, Pique, and Roberto are all injured, while Umtiti and Araujo are still questionable. In their latest LaLiga game, Barcelona was playing against Osasuna at home, and they have had massive 71% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 9 big chances created, and a high 91% of the correct passes. With 2 scored goals in each half and 4 goals scored by different players, Barcelona has won this match 4-0. I would have never thought Barcelona will play better soccer with all the injuries and without half of their defense, but here we are. Barcelona is slowly finding their new identity under the new head coach, and they are quickly turning into one of the favorites to win the Champions League and LaLiga.
Cadiz and Barcelona have played only twice against each other, and Barcelona has won both of those games. Barcelona was resting Messi in their Champions League game, and I think Cadiz doesn’t stand a chance here. I’m taking Barcelona on the road.
