Barcelona vs Cadiz – Preview and Prediction

Barcelona vs Cadiz – Barcelona will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to eight games when they host relegation-threatened Cadiz tomorrow. Cadiz is 18th, one point ahead of 17th-placed Mallorca, with a game in hand.

Barcelona’s chances of winning a trophy this season were all but dashed on Thursday night when they lost 3-2 to Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

Xavi’s side can still catch La Liga leaders Real Madrid, but it’s hard to see them dropping enough points to allow Barcelona to finish first, as the gap is 12 points, despite having a game in hand.

The fact that Barcelona is only three points ahead of fifth-placed Real Betis means that their place in the Champions League is in jeopardy.

However, they are on a seven-game winning streak in La Liga, including a 3-2 win over Levante last weekend, with Luuk de Jong scoring the winning goal in the 92nd minute.

Barcelona have the fifth-best home record in La Liga this season, with 32 points from 14 games, but Cadiz have won eight of their 15 away games, and the visitors are currently fighting for their lives at the foot of the table.

Cadiz are 18th in the table with 28 points, one point behind 17th-placed Mallorca with a game in hand, and can still avoid relegation.

Last season, the Yellow Submarine finished 12th after returning to the top flight. It’s been harder to compete this time.

Sergio Gonzalez’s side lost 2-1 to Real Betis last weekend, but they have only lost two of their last eight league games, keeping them in touch with the teams above them, including Granada, who have 29 points.

Cadiz have a difficult final weekend with games against Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla, Elche and Real Sociedad, and they will not want to go to Anoeta without a win.

Barcelona vs Cadiz – Betting Analysis

Last season, Los Piratas took four points off Barcelona in La Liga, and held them to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture in September.

This could be a difficult match for Barcelona, as Cadiz is fighting to stay in the division. The visitors will also be the fresher of the two teams, but we expect Barcelona to win their eighth league game in a row.
