The clashes in the intermediate rounds in Europe end with the last for the sixth round match of the Spanish La Liga between Cadiz and Barcelona at Estadio Nuevo Mirandila. Curiously, during the opening of this stadium in 1955 under the name Estadio Ramon de Caranza, Cadiz met Barcelona again and lost 0: 4.
The team from the region of Andalusia returned after 15 years of exile in the elite last season and despite the slightly weak final finished to the delight of its fans 12th, a great new beginning among the strongest. The new race started with two 1-1 draws at home with Levante and in Sevilla against Betis, then lost twice on this field, first extremely dramatically to Osasuna with 2: 3 with conceded goals in the 91st and 95th minutes. , then from Real Sociedad with 0: 2, again in the last twenty minutes. The compensation was the first victory on foreign soil last Friday in Vigo over Celta with 2: 1 and this must have restored the confidence of the "Yellow Submarine" for this complex home with a team against which, however, they have no fear and won four points in their debut season. Acapo, Perea,
Barcelona continued to play on the nerves of management, coaches and especially their loyal supporters, as they barely survived on Monday despite the big advantage against Granada at the Camp Nou. This final 1: 1 was fixed in the last 90 minutes by the defender Araujo, and Ronald Koeman most of the time looked more desperate than angry, which is already a very bad sign for the "Catalans". True, they have two wins and two draws in the championship and a game played less, but this is not the leading thing, there is no magic in the game, everything becomes very difficult, this was most clearly seen on 14.09. at home in a Champions League match against Bayern, when this 0: 3 was the lowest and in which for the first time in 17 years they did not make a single accurate shot. So everyone is asking themselves the question, especially after the incident with Messi and Pochettino on Sunday at the Parc des Princes in his substitution in the 76th minute, who needed this sale when both parties are not happy and should the point of some stupid rule always be followed? There are still many absentees - Aguero, Dembele, Pedri, Wage, Braithwaite, and the participation of Fati and Alba is in question.
It was about the two matches from last season - on this field Cadiz won 2: 1 and finished with Barcelona at the Camp Nou draw - 1: 1. Can he use the situation and not lose again, according to bookmakers giving exactly 4/1 to their detriment - difficult. However, there are only two tips - goal / goal and the brave and big 1X double chance based on these matches. Where is the truth, we recommend you in this situation a third compromise option and I hope we are right - a forecast of over 2.5 goals as last year without caring who scores the goals. And so a forecast of over 2.5 goals and pleasant excitement with the matches on Thursday!
Few goals and "something else"
Another misjudgment of the bookmaker. Great odds for less than 4 goals in this match and "something else".
Let's find out if we have more than a 50% chance of success with such a bet to find out if there is value in it.
Cadiz plays well in defense
Cadiz have 5 out of a possible 15 points.
They are the team that has created the fewest goals in La Liga. But at the same time they are doing very well in defense.
They conceded a total of 8 goals. But notice, 3 of them are from penalties and 2 after a corner kick.
Remember this moment. Because it is important for our football forecast.
Barcelona and Kuman split
Now let's see Barcelona.
Ronald Koeman's press conference after the draw with Granada was very interesting.
In fact, he appeared with a piece of paper that was read in 3 minutes.
1. The club stood behind him. And asked the media for support.
2. He would consider a GOOD ranking in La Liga a success. And in the Champions League you could not rely on "miracles".
According to the Catalan press, this is very likely to be Kuman's last match as Barça coach.
Forecast for Cadiz - Barcelona
Also, according to the media, the situation in Barcelona was terrible in every way.
The debts of the club were huge. And no more investment could be made.
There came a period in which no success would be thought of. And the opportunity will be sought to give a chance only to players from the school.
I had never heard such terrible things about one of the greatest football clubs until recently.
I can't trust the Catalans in this match.
And Granada has already shown how to play against them.
Cadiz will have the same approach. And they will not lose this match. Not right now.
Low performance and 1X is my prediction choice.
Golden times have come for us bettors.
