Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Villarreal and Cadiz take on each other at Estadio de la Ceramica in an all-Yellow-Submarine clash. Villarreal came from behind to beat Barcelona 5-3 at Camp Nou and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. Experienced forward Jose Luis Morales is pushing for a start after sealing the victory against Barca, while all Pedraza, Terrats, Parejo, Albiol, Pino, and Suarez continue to miss out with injuries.
Cadiz, on the other hand, have not recorded a win in Primera Division since September 1, 2023 and despite their fine display in the goalless draw with Athletic Bilbao, home win should be considered. Robert Navarro suffered an injury in the last league match, with Brian Ocampo likely to replace him in the starting XI. As for the visiting side, both Fali and Ruben Alcaraz are banned for the game due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
