Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Ramon de Carranza when Cadiz and Villarreal, the two Yellow Submarines, go head to head on Matchday 7. The newcomers have been playing above expectations on their return to La Liga, with the team sitting in top five ahead of Sunday’s football match. Cadiz did well to beat Real Madrid on the road at the weekend, and they are surely capable of matching Villarreal at the island.
The visitors, on the other hand, did well to add several high-profile footballers to the squad in the summer transfer window, and, as a result, they sit in the second place in the standings. Villarreal recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Valencia in their last league match, but beating Cadiz on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Japan rising star Takefusa Kubo is banned for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Ramiro Funes Mori):
Argentina isn’t known to produce great talents in defence but Ramiro Jose Funes Mori is an exception. The 25-year-old started his football career in the United States with FC Dallas. He won an MLS talent competition to get into their youth team but it was less than a year before he moved back to Argentina.
Mori joined River Plate as a youth player in 2008 and progressed to their senior team within three years. The young defender is nothing short of a club legend at River Plate having won six titles with the team. More than the titles and his performances, it was his performances in important games that is still vividly remembered.
