Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After rolling over Alaves 5-1 at the weekend, Barcelona will be looking to stay in the title race when they face Cadiz at their Camp Nou on Sunday afternoon. The Catalan giants head into the match following the Champions League clash with PSG, meaning that Ronald Koeman is likely to mix the squad. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Leo Messi has found his best form of late. The likes of Araujo, Coutinho, Fati, and Roberto remain in the recovery room, but Pique has overcome his injury.
Cadiz, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Catalonia. Since the Yellow Submarine are not regarded as good travellers, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Barcelona’s party at Camp Nou. Marcos Mauro is back from suspension for the newcomers.
Highlighted Player (Lionel Messi):
Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the best players in the history of football. He was born on 24 June, 1987 in Rosario and he began his football career at Newell’s Old Boys. At age 10 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, but having realized his potential at a young age, Barcelona decided to pay for his treatment.
Messi joined Barca in 2001 and he has been playing for the Camp Nou outfit ever since. The Argentine magician has won eight La Liga trophies with Barca and he helped the Catalan giants lift no less than four Champions League titles (2005/2006, 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2014/2015).
In the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign Messi scored 50 goals for Barca, while netting 14 goals in the 2011/2012 Champions League campaign. The five-time Golden Ball award winner has established himself as Barcelona’s all-time top scorer, but he has yet to win a trophy with Argentina national team at major tournaments. Leo Messi, though, has won Olympic Gold Medal (2008) and FIFA World Youth Championship (2005), with la Albiceleste.
Highlighted Team (Cadiz):
Cadiz is a professional La Liga club that plays home games at Estadio Ramon de Caranza. The capacity of the stadium is 20,724 people, and it was opened back in September 1955. El Submarino Amarillo are well known for their yellow shirts, with the team wearing blue jerseys when playing on the travels.
The club was founded back on Sepember 8, 1910, with the team facing local rivals Cadiz Sporting Club in their first ever official match. Cadiz currently compete in la liga, with the team securing promotion to the Spanish top flight at the end of the 2019/20 season following a 15-year absence. Cadiz are one of those teams who produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Magico Gonzales is the most notable Cadiz player.
The legendary hot-tempered attacker scored 57 goals in 194 league appearances for El Submarino Amarillo, and he was well known for his amazing dribbling skills. Magico Gonzales scored 21 goals in 62 appearances for the Salvador national football team.
