The evening of 18 April at the Camp Nou will be the decisive match of the 32nd round of the Spanish championship. Barcelona, saddened by their relegation from the UEFA Champions League, will face Cadiz. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet nigeria.
On April 14, Barcelona had a difficult and disappointing match in the quarterfinals of the Europa League. On home soil the Catalans unexpectedly lost 2-3 to Mainz. Thus, Xavi Hernanes’s side were once again robbed of the chance to win the trophy this season.
The Bianconeri have no choice but to continue their fight for 2nd place in the Premiership with Sevilla. As a reminder, the teams are now tied on 60 points each. But it’s the Catalans, who are in 2nd place with a game to spare.
In the championship of Spain, Barcelona have not lost for 14 consecutive rounds (4 World series and 10 wins). In contrast, they have won 5 games at home in the previous 5 meetings. A total of 32 points have been scored in the 14 games at the Camp Nou.
Cadiz is one of the teams, who did their best to avoid relegation. But they did at the end of the last round. Recall that a week ago, the Yellows suffered a defeat at home to Betis (1-2).
At this stage of the season, the Yellows are 18th in the standings. After 31 games, they have 28 points on their books. There are still chances to retain their place in the elite, and they are quite high. Only 1 point separates the Yellows from 16th-placed Granada.
The team scored 14 points each at home and away. All the away figures for Alvaro Cervera’s charges are as follows: 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 defeats. The goals scored and conceded are 13 and 23 respectively.
In the first round of the current Spanish championship Barcelona and Cadiz encounter sensationally ended. The referee’s final whistle recorded a 0-0 stalemate.
Last season at the Camp Nou, Barcelona and Cadiz also failed to determine the winner with a 1-1 draw.
In the last 7 of Cadiz’s away games (in the Primera), they have not scored more than 3 goals (Total less than 3.5).
Barcelona vs Cadiz. Outcome with cf. 1,70
After being relegated from the Europa League, Barcelona must rehabilitate. The only way to do it is to beat Cadiz by a wide margin. And it seems to me that the Catalans have every chance for a win.
Xavi’s side have looked excellent recently in La Liga (14 games without defeat). I’m sure they expect to continue this streak. Cadiz, of course, occasionally produce quality matches, but they are unlikely to do so at the Cam Nou against the embittered Catalans.
My prediction is for the home side to win by a head-to-head of 1.5.
