Valencia - Cadiz prediction and analysis
Valencia hosts Cadiz in the La Liga match.
Here, the Bats will look for their first championship win of the 2023 calendar year.
After losing their visit to Villarreal on December 31.
A possible success here, however, would not lift the hosts higher than the 10th place they currently find themselves.
Their passage to the 1/8 finals in the King's Cup tournament can serve as an impetus for victory.
Where they eliminated lowly La Nucia. Although with a rather changed composition.
In contrast, the guests from Cádiz rested during the week .
As they were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Real Union in mid-November.
So they haven't played since the 1-1 draw with Almeria in Primera on December 30.
With this match, Cadiz enters a difficult series.
Sergio Gonzalez's side will play direct rivals for salvation in the next two rounds:
- Elche on January 16
- Seville on January 22
The home win odds are too low for me to pay attention to.
But at the expense of that, I think it's worth looking for a lot of goals in this match.
Valencia had recorded 6 consecutive games with 3 or more goals before today, although half of those were controls.
Cadiz have also been involved in a pleasingly high number of overs - 7 times over 2.5 goals in their last 10 games across the board.
But, notice – 5 of those 7 overs were 5 or more goals .
Prediction: Over 3.0 Asian Goal Line.
At exactly 3 goals in the match – the bet is cancelled.
Valencia - statistics and info
Valencia did not make the dream return to La Liga after the World Cup break.
They had as their opponent the tough team of Villarreal and were guests in the match.
In fact, the Bats took the lead last weekend with Edinson Cavani hitting the target in the first half.
But the Yellow Submarine turned the game around.
Samuel Chukwueze equalized in the 45th minute before Juan Voit scored the winner 2 minutes from time.
Gennaro Gattuso's side have shown great inconsistency so far in the campaign.
Having won five, drawn four and lost six of their 15 La Liga games.
But they will go into this match on the back of a successful 3-0 win over La Nucia in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night.
Justin Kluivert, Ilaix Moriba and Hugo Dureau recorded their names among the top scorers in the match.
With this match , the Bats entered a busy period of the season.
Because they will also face Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup on January 11th.
Before a possible final against Real Betis or Barcelona a few days later.
Cadiz - statistics and info
Cadiz is in its third consecutive campaign in the Spanish Primera Division.
Finishing 12th and 17th since winning promotion from Segunda 3 years ago.
So the Yellows are enjoying their best performance in La Liga since the early 1990s.
This season, however, they are heavily involved in the battle for salvation. As they are currently penultimate.
The visiting team has won only 12 points from their first 15 games. Recording 2 wins, 6 draws and 7 defeats in that period.
Sergio Gonzalez's players have the weakest attack in La Liga (together with the last Elche) - only 10 goals scored.
Which is an indication of their problems in attack.
In addition, Cadiz lost striker Lucas Perez , who has 3 goals for them in Primera in 2022/23.
The 34-year-old returned to Deportivo La Coruña.
