Cadiz Review – Can Segunda high flyers stake their claim in the top flight of Spanish football?

For the first time in 15 years, Cadiz will be plying their trade in the first division of Spanish football. After narrowly missing out on the league title last season Cadiz will be aiming to retain their status as a La Liga club come the end of the season.

Our betting prediction:
Osasuna to Win

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 1300 GMT, Thursday 10 September 2020)

The side enters the season opener after a steady preseason preparation. After a recent friendly with Almeria where the tie ended with a 1-1 draw.

The step up from the second division to La Liga will be a challenge for any side that moves divisions. Where Cadiz look particularly in good stead for the problems that are presented in the higher division is the fact they boasted the 3rd best defense in the league last season.

Conceding 39 goals in 42 games was the 3rd best record in the league last year. Something that they will need to bring into the season time round.

Goals will also be an important feature in the survival of Cadiz this season. Their danger man last season was midfielder Alex. His 13 goals were the highest in the side and he was in the top 10 goalscorers in the league for the season, highlighting how important he is to the side and their efforts to survive the drop.

If Cadiz are to take away anything from this game on Saturday evening then big performances from Alex and the likes of Spanish veteran striker Alvaro Negredo will be key in order to get that coveted 3 points.


Osasuna review – Can Osasuna kick on from their amazing 10th place finish last season?

Having been promoted themselves in the 2018/19 season, to finish 10th a year later is an incredible effort. Which is why it is important for Osasuna to kick on this season and ensure that this finish wasn’t a fluke.

Coach Arrasate, will have his work cut out to make sure his players don’t become a little complacent, especially using relegated Espanyol as a reminder of how quickly last season’s form can be forgotten and most importantly, how quickly you can be stuck in a rut and ultimately be relegated.

However, in this case I can’t see this side being in trouble. Having retained the majority of their stars including Argentinian Avila whose 9 goals and all around play was vital to Osasunas high finish.

Another talisman who will be expecting to continue his great from last year is Ruben Garcia. Who last year finished with 8 goals from midfield.

This sort of output from the midfield eases the pressure of the attackers to get goals and if he is able to recreate this sort of form again this season, then Europa League football should be the dream for this side to achieve.
