Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Sociedad will look to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Valencia when they take on Cadiz in the opening match of La Liga round 24. The Basques are enjoying yet another season to remember, but they need to get back on course as soon as possible if they are to represent Spain in the Champions League next term. Key midfielder David Silva is a major doubt, as well as Aritz Elustondo, Mohamed Ali Cho, and Martin Merquelanz, while this season is over for Sadiq Umar.
The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Rayo Vallecano. Cadiz are eager to escape the relegation zone, but given their poor away record (2-2-7), home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to the Basque Country.
Highlighted Player (David Silva):
David Silva is a product of Valencia’s youth system. Born on 8 January, 1986, the highly rated footballer made his debut in the 2004/2005 campaign and went on to score a total of 21 goals for the Estadio de Mestalla outfit. In 2010, the Spanish midfielder signed a deal with Premier League side Manchester City and he has already won two domestic championships with the free-spending club.
In the 2015/2016 season David Silva and Co. faced Real Madrid in the Champions League semis, but the Spanish giants proved to be a big catch for the Citizens in the two-legged tie. Silva plays as an attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as winger or a second striker as well.
He is well known for his possession-retaining qualities and, as a result, he got the nicknames “Merlin” and “El Mago”. David Silva won the 2014 FIFA World Cup trophy with Spain, while winning Euro 2008 and Euro 2012 with La Roja as well.
