Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Monday’s football game between Cadiz and Granada will bring down the curtain on day 17 of the new La Liga campaign. Cadiz are on a three-game losing run in the national championship, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. All Tomas Alarcon, Jose Mari, and Jon Ander Garrido are sidelined with injuries, while veteran attacker Alvaro Negredo is pushing for a start.
Los Granadinos, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Deportivo Alaves. The Andalusians, though, have recorded no more than one triumph on the road this season, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. All German Sanchez, Darwin Machis, Ruben Rochina, Isma Ruiz, Victor Diaz, and Domingos Duarte have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away side.
Highlighted Player (Alvaro Gimenez):
Alvaro Gimenez is a product of Elche football school who plays for fellow La Liga side Cadiz as a forward. Alvaro played for several Spanish clubs in the past, including Elche, Valencia B, Torrellano, Mallorca, Alcorcon, Almeria, before joining Birmingham City in the 2019/20 season.
After scoring only three goals in 24 appearances for the Blues in the Championship, Alvaro Gimenez returned to Spain at the end of the season, signing a deal with La Liga newcomers Cadiz. The Spanish attacker made his debut with the “Yellow Submarine” on October 4, 2020 in a 1-1 draw with Granada. His main position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well.
Gimenez’s preferred foot is left, and his contract with Cadiz should expire on June 30, 2023. The Cadiz attacker has three caps with the Spain U17 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
Highlighted Team (Granada):
Granada are an Andalusian football club that plays in Spanish La Liga. The club were founded on 14 April, 1931 and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy. El Grana, though, booked their place in the Spanish Cup final in 1959, but Barcelona proved to be a big catch for the Andalusian outfit.
Granada host their rivals at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes, the stadium that was built in 1995. The capacity of the stadium is 23,934. Granada’s main rivals are fellow Andalusian team Sevilla, but Real Betis are regarded as the club’s bitter rivals as well.
The likes of Yacine Brahimi, Juan Aguero, Gustavo Benitez, Pahinho, Denis Milar, Julio Montero Castillo, Capi, Cesar and Jose Mingorance are famous players that were part of the Estadio El Sadar outfit in the past. The original colour of Granada’s kits were blue and white, but after the Spanish Civil War the club chiefs bought new ones (red and white).
