Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Monday’s football game between Barcelona and Cadiz will bring down the curtain on day 32 of the current La Liga campaign. Barca aim to build on a hard-fought 3-2 win over Levante, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Xavi is doing a great job with the Camp Nou outfit, and his men are seen as hot favourites to beat the Yellow Submarine in front of home fans.
A man to watch in the home team will be January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who looks unstoppable at the moment, while Dani Alves is back after he was ineligible to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League. All Umtiti, Depay, Fati, Roberto, and Dest miss out with injuries, but experienced defender Pique should be fit for the match. Cadiz, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Real Betis, and they are unlikely to spoil Barca’s party at Camp Nou. Midfielder Jose Mari is back from suspension, speaking of the away side.

Gerard Pique is a Spanish footballer who was born in Barcelona on 2 February, 1987. He is married to famous Colombian singer Shakira and they have two sons Milan and Sasha. Pique is a product of La Masia, the Barca’s youth academy, but he started his senior career at Manchester United.
