Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Saturday’s football game at Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla pits together Cadiz and Barcelona, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2022/2023 La Liga season. The Yellow Submarine’s main goal is to secure yet another Primera Division survival, while Barca aim to put an end to Real Madrid’s dominance in the Spanish top flight. Cadiz’s start to the season, though, is not giving fans a reason for optimism as they suffered a loss in each of the first four games of the season. Since the rock-bottom side have yet to find the net in the process, home win should not be considered. Jon Ander Garrido should be the only absentee in the home side.
Barca, on the other hand, continue to rely on new signings Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski, and given their display in a 3-0 crushing of Sevilla, anything but a routine away win would be a big surprise. Xavi should have a full squad to choose from this time out.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Perez):
Lucas Perez is a Spanish footballer who plays for Deportivo La Coruna as a striker. Lucas Perez was born in La Coruna on 10 September, 1988 and he started his youth career at Alaves. Between 2007 and 2009 he played for Atletico Madrid C and in 2009 he signed for Rayo Vallecano.
Lucas Perez scored 25 goals in 44 appearances for los Vallecanos, but he played no more than seven matches for the first team. In 2011 he joined Ukrainian side Karpaty Lviv, but two years later he moved to PAOK, where he played 32 league games for the Greek outfit (scoring nine goals).
Lucas made it to the Greek Football Cup final with PAOk in the 2013/2014 season, but Panathinaikos emerged triumphant in the title game. On 12 August, 2015, Lucas signed a four-year deal with his home-town club Deportivo La Coruna and he impressed in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, scoring 17 goals for the Galician outfit.
Highlighted Team (Barcelona):
Barcelona is a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning “El Pichichi” award. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past.
The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark. Barcelona welcome their rivals at Camp Nou, the stadium that was built in 1957.
Barcelona’s local rivals are Espanyol, but the rivalry between Barca and Real Madrid is much bigger. The two La Liga giants face each other in “El Clasico”, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Barca are famous for their football youth school La Masia as well.
