Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla will host Thursday’s La Liga game between Cadiz and Athletic Club, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Cadiz are fighting tooth and nail to secure the survival, but that is easier said than done. Midfielder Ruben Alcaraz is back from suspension, while both Varazdat Haroyan and Florin And one should miss out with injuries. Iza is likely to recover in time to face the Lions.
Athletic, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a shocking 2-0 loss to Celta Vigo. Since both sides will go for a win in the midweek clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Asier Villalibre and Inigo Lekue are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the away side. In the first half of the season Cadiz defeated Athletic Bilbao thanks to Salvi Sanchez’s early goal.
