La Liga: Càdiz vs Barça

Cadiz vs Barcelona 

Although he is doing well with a rookie foot to play in Spain's No. 1 (ranked 6th with 15 points / 11 matches), Cadiz has a very unhappy performance: bad at home  and sublimation on the away field.  Specifically, in the last 5 matches at Ramón de Carranza, coach Álvaro Cervera's army has not once shown a victory smile (losing 3).
Cadiz with Huesca, Eibar and Levante are 4 teams that have not won at home in the La Liga 2020/21 arena.  However, at away field, this rookie lost only 1/6 of the last match (won 4).  Currently, the Andalusian team also stands above this round opponent, the giant Barcelona.

This season, Cadiz has faced two other big names of Spanish football, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.  As a result, they lost 0-4 at the Wanda Metropolitano, but when they played at Alfredo Di Stéfano (Real Madrid's subfield due to the Bernabeu main stadium under renovation), they shocked with a 1-0 victory.

Certainly Cadiz also wants to restore that glorious victory to Barca, but it seems that it is an impossible mission.  In addition to the "smart home market" factor as mentioned above as well as the difference in qualifications and class with the Cataluyna team, Cadiz itself does not have the best form and force.

Before the reception of the Blaugrana, Cadiz did not win in the last 3 matches (lost 2).  One of the reasons that Cadiz no longer plays well is due to the absence of key striker Álvaro Negredo due to injury.  Although he was able to return to training, the veteran striker 's ability to play in 5/9 goals that Cadiz scored from the beginning of the 2020/21 season is still open.

On the other side of the front line, although it is not possible to reach a state of high stability, recently, Barcelona is playing well.  In the last 3 matches, coach Koeman's team won all, scoring 11 goals without conceding a single goal, despite the absence of a series of key defenders (Pique, Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, ...)

Remembering the last 2/3 victory, Barca only launched the reserve team to save the strength of the pillars that had to plow too much.  The match against Cadiz tonight, surely the mainstays like Messi, Coutinho or Stegen will start from the beginning after being completely rested in the 3-0 victory over Ferencvaros in the middle of last week.

In this context, it is really too difficult for Cadiz if you want to shock Barca like what you did before Real Madrid.
