Round 37 of the La Liga serves up an encounter between Cadiz and Celta Vigo taking place at Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla on Sunday.
With 4 defeats from their last 6 matches, the mood around the Cadiz camp could probably be a lot better. They need to up their game or prepare for more disappointment, when facing Celta Vigo on their home ground.
Cadiz are not a high scoring team these days, as they only found the back of the net seven times in the last ten outings. That is an average of just 0.7 goals per game, as they conceded 14 goals. They managed three clean sheets in these matches.
Celta Vigo scored nine goals, conceded 16 and kept their opponents from scoring one times in ten matches.
Celta Vigo ran out 3-0 winners the last time these two rivals played each other and are definitely planning to claim three points again on Sunday.
Cadiz vs Celta Vigo Prediction
It is all or nothing with Cadiz presently. They first went down 1-0 in an encounter with Mallorca, to which they replied by beating Real Valladolid2-0. Their latest encounter once again had them on the losing side, when they lost 2-0 against Villarreal. Cadiz only pulled off two wins from a possible six in recent La Liga matches on home soil. Of the remaining four matches, they drew one and lost three, as they scored six and conceded eight goals.
They went into the season as candidates for the drop, and unfortunately for Cadiz, they have lived up to expectations. As the season draws to a close, they are still in with a chance of escaping relegation, though.
Celta Vigo Form
A single point prevents Celta Vigo from having nothing to show for their previous three games. They came up short, losing by 1-2 and 2-1 against Valencia and Athletic Bilbao, respectively. Their latest match brought some consolation, as they were able to hang on for a 1-1 draw against Girona. Celta Vigo managed to win just once in their past six away games in the La Liga. On top of winning once they also drew one as well as losing four, while scoring 11 time and letting in seven.
Cadiz find it tough these days to get a goal in, but Celta Vigo are equally lacklustre in front of goal currently, and going with under 2.5 goals in the betting market is the obvious choice.
