Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Cadiz and Barcelona take on each other at Estadio Ramon de Carranza in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. Cadiz made a flying start to the season, but, as expected, the newcomers suffered a dip in form. El Submarino Amarillo are on a three-game winless run in La Liga, and they are seen as big underdogs in the clash against Leo Messi and Co.
Left winger Jairo Izquierdo, who suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Elche, is unlikely to feature against Barca. Ronald Koeman’s troops have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team rolling over Osasuna 4-0 at the weekend. Barcelona have already dropped too many points in the 2020/21 season, and seeing that Cadiz have the worst home record in the new campaign, away win should be considered. Fati, Pique, Lenglet, and Roberto are all likely to miss the game through injury.
Highlighted Player (Philippe Coutinho):
Philippe Coutinho is a Brazilian football player born on 12th of June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro. Coutinho started his football career for Vasco da Gama where he played in the youth as well. By the age of 16 Internazionale signed Coutinho but let him play in Brazil until he was 18 years old.
After 2 difficult seasons Internazionale let Coutinho go for a loan period to Espanyol and after 1 season he got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 8 million euro. Coutinho played in several youth teams of Brazil but made his debut for the first team in October 2010.
With a height of only 171cm Coutinho is physically weak. He compensates his physical ability by being very creative, having a great vision and passing. The preferred position of Coutinho is attacking midfielder where he gets easily into the right position to give an assist.
Coutinho won the Italian Suppercoppa, the worldcup for club teams and the World Cup of nations U20. Coutinho was part of the Liverpool team that was able to become second in the Premier League.
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.
