There will be a big relegation six-pointer in La Liga on Monday evening, as Cadiz and Granada both desperately look for the wins that they need to move clear of the drop zone. It is a bigger game for the visitors, who could see a six-point gap open up between themselves and safety.
La Liga Preview
Cadiz are already four points away from 17th placed Granada coming into this fixture, which means that this is a fixture that they dare not lot. A victory would put them to within a point of the closest team to the drop zone, while defeat and a seven-point difference may be a bridge too far.
Cadiz actually come into this fixture in slightly better form, as they have lost just once in their previous five fixtures. However, wins have been in short supply throughout the campaign, as they have registered just three, which is the second-fewest of any side in La Liga.
There is certainly a growing feeling that a win is coming, as they have been unlucky in each of their last two fixtures. They were held to draws on both occasions, but last weekend they showed great character to earn a draw against Getafe. Alvaro Negredo scored in the third minute of injury time at the end of the first half to put them level.
Granada have been sucked right back into the relegation battle over recent weeks, as they have lost their last five games in La Liga. Only the bottom two teams in the league have lost more times this season. They also have the fourth-worst defensive record in the Spanish top-flight.
Their latest defeat was suffered against Villarreal last weekend, as they were beaten 4-1. That result means that they have now conceded seven goals in their previous three and have scored just once.
Granada vs Cadiz Head to Head
Two of the previous three matches between the sides in La Liga have ended in draws, which includes the 1-1 from earlier this season. However, Cadiz won on their last visit to Granada, winning 1-0 in May 2021.
Granada vs Cadiz Prediction
Granada are going in the wrong direction at present, and it’s hard to see where their fall will stop. The preference is for a win for the visiting side this weekend, who have a decent record in this fixture, and will understand the magnitude of getting three points to keep their survival bid alive.
