Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Villarreal and Cadiz, the two Yellow Submarines, face each other at Estadio de la Ceramica in the La Liga round Villarreal aim to build on back-to-back wins over Athletic Bilbao and Girona and a triumph over Cadiz will see them keep their Champions League hopes alive. The good news for the hosts is that both Dani Parejo and Pau Torres are back from suspensions.
Meanwhile, the visitors are desperate to secure yet another Primera Division survival. Cadiz proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Valladolid, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the midweek game. Considering that Villarreal have been scoring goals for fun of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. As for the visitors, Ivan Alejo returns from suspension, while Choco Lozano is pushing for a start. All Cala, Roger Marti, Brian Ocampo, and Jon Ander Garrido remain on the sidelines with injuries.
