Mid-placed Valencia face relegation-threatened Cadiz at Estadio Mestalla in round 16 of the La Liga in a match that kick-offs on Friday. The visitors have a lot more at stake, but are lacking in quality. It finished 0-0 when Valencia last played Cadiz and the best betting odds on yet another draw at full-time with the bookies are at 16/5.
Sitting bottom of the table, Cadiz have claimed 12 points after 15 rounds, while Valencia have amassed 19 points. This places the latter as number 10 in the La Liga at the moment.
Cadiz enter the match against Valencia hoping to gain some ground on the latter in La Liga standings. A positive result could prove pivotal to their upcoming challenges this season.
Valencia step into their next home match on Friday having scored a nice average of 1.6 goals in ten matches. They managed a total of 16 goals, while also allowing 12 goals against. That is an average of 1.2 goals against per match. They were able to hang on to a clean sheet two times in those matches.
Cadiz travel to their next La Liga match, averaging a lowly one goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of ten goals, while also conceding 13 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.3 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring four times.
Valencia vs Cadiz Prediction
Valencia added two wins to their account in their three most recent outings, as they beat Real Betis by 3-0. Their next match left them empty-handed in a 2-1 defeat against Villarreal, followed up by a 0-3 win against La Nucia. Valencia claimed a middle-of-the-road three wins in their previous six matches on home soil in the La Liga. They also drew one and lost two, as they scored 14 and conceded six goals.
In a season where everything simply clicks, Valencia might even reach the upper third of the table but right now, they are on course for a solid mid-table finish.
A single point prevents Cadiz from having nothing to show for their previous three games. They came up short, losing by 2-1 and 3-2 against Real Madrid and Real Union, respectively. Their latest match brought some consolation, as they were able to hang on for a 1-1 draw against Almeria. Cadiz only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the La Liga. In these six matches they drew two and lost three as well as being outscored by 11 goals to four.
They were expected to struggle to avoid relegation from the La Liga this season, and sadly for Cadiz, they remain on course for the drop.
Going forward, Valencia and Cadiz are both in decent form, while at the same time being generous in defence. We are confident, both teams will find the back of the net on Friday.
Valencia took 12 points from their last seven encounters with teams from the bottom half of the La Liga table. This amounts to three wins after scoring 15 times and conceding eight. Cadiz scored five goals and conceded 20 in their last nine encounters with teams in the top half of the La Liga. This lead to one win and five points. Valencia enjoy a record of five wins, four draws and six defeats in the La Liga this season. Cadiz are looking at two wins, six draws and seven defeats in the La Liga.
