Barcelona is welcoming Cadiz to Camp Nou in round 24 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Barcelona has lost 2 of their last 3 games, but their latest loss was an absolute disaster. Earlier this week, Barcelona was playing against PSG at home in the Champions League, and they were dominated, in every sense of the word. Barcelona got ahead from the penalty spot, but since that moment PSG has taken over the game, and they have scored 4 unanswered goals. Barcelona has lost in this game 1-4. As far as LaLiga goes, Barcelona is in 3rd place, and with Atletico Madrid losing their game this weekend, Barcelona has a chance of getting one step closer to them. Overall, it’s not a bad season for Barcelona, and they are the best offensive team with 49 scored goals while conceding 21 goals, which also isn’t bad. Barcelona was playing against Alaves in their last game, and they were dominant with 73% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 91% of the correct passes. This was one of the best games this season for Barcelona, and they have won this game 8-1. Messi has scored 15 goals so far for Barcelona, but this loss to PSG is now opening a new set of problems for them because if Barcelona gets knocked out of the Champions League, I’m sure Messi will leave in the summer.
Cadiz is not doing well at the moment, and they have lost 5 of their last 6 games while losing their last 4 games straight. Despite this bad streak, Cadiz is outside the relegation zone, in 15th place with 24 points, but the pressure from behind is massive, and Cadiz is only 3 points away from the relegation zone. Offensively, Cadiz is one of the weakest teams with only 20 scored goals, and Negredo is their leading goalscorer with 6 goals and 3 assists. Quezada, Akapo, Navarro, and Jonsson are all injured, while Alex and Fernandez are still questionable for this game. Cadiz was playing against Athletic Bilbao in their last game, and they have had 42% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 78% of the correct passes. Cadiz has done absolutely nothing well in this game, and they ended up losing this match 0-4. The bottom 6 or 7 teams in LaLiga are all in the same quality class, and any of these teams can save themselves, or get relegated, but I believe Cadiz is good enough to stay above the relegation zone, but it will be a tight race.
Barcelona and Cadiz have played only 3 times against each other, and Barcelona has won 2 of those games, while Cadiz won one game, and it was this season in round 12. Barcelona has only 1 loss at home this season, and after getting embarrassed against PSG, they need to get back on the winning track, and there is no better opponent than Cadiz to do that.
