Sunday sees what could be a pivotal game in the fight to avoid relegation in La Liga, as Cadiz hosts Celta Vigo at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla.Cadiz looking to end winless run in La Liga
The Yellow Submarine are winless in their last 21 matches in the Spanish top-flight. The poor run includes suffering five defeats in their previous seven outings in La Liga.
The woeful recent run has Cadiz in 18th place in the table, three points behind their 17th-place opponents. A victory would move Mauricio Pellegrino’s team above Celta in the standings.
Cadiz has been seriously goal-shy lately, as they have scored just once in their last eight outings in the Spanish top flight.
The home team are winless in their last nine home games in the Spanish top flight, having scored just once in four outings in La Liga.Celta’s on a woeful run in La Liga
The Galicians suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Barcelona last time out, which was their fourth defeat in the previous five matches in the Spanish top flight. Celta have also won just once in their last six games in La Liga.
Their recent matches in La Liga have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight games in the Spanish top flight.
Rafa Benitez’s team have been poor travellers in La Liga, having won just one of their last ten away games in the Spanish top flight. They may have been poor away from home, but Celta have been prolific lately, scoring at least two goals in three of their last four games in La Liga.What am I backing?
Both teams have been in poor form of late in the Spanish top flight, and it could be a cagey encounter. The bet I am backing is the draw.
