After another disappointing season, Sevilla will host Cadiz at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium hoping to improve their La Liga standings before the end of the current campaign. While the hosts are initially favoured to win, the visitors’ tenacity has recently reappeared with impressive displays that have maintained Cadiz’s survival prospects.

Sevilla

Sevilla is predicted to finish the season below expectations due to their mid-table status and lack of possibilities to qualify for the European Cup the following season. The guests were near the drop zone not too long ago which caused more instability at the club with multiple managerial changes following.

With three rounds remaining, the hosts are in a safe zone thanks to Quique Sanches Flores’ appointment as head coach, which recently restored some confidence to the squad with improved performances. Even though Sevilla got better under the new manager, the Andalusian outfit failed to compete at the highest level, dropping important points against teams vying for a top-7 finish.

Also, the hosts are closer to relegation than the European Cup positions, which is a new situation for Los Nervionenses supporters given they previously expected their favourites to play at the highest level domestically and in Europe. Sevilla suffered more losses (14) than victories (11) this term, one of the club’s lowest stages in history.

More so, Sevilla’s season-best came during a winning streak of invincibility that lasted six games but ended last round at Estadi de la Ceramica against Villareal (3-2). Furthermore, reversing a deficit in The Great Derby at Betis’ field was another magnificent feat that maintained Sevilla’s supremacy over their fierce rivals.

With three games left before the season ends, Sevilla needs a win against Cadiz considering the next schedule with difficult tests against Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona that could jeopardize their hopes to finish in the top half of La Liga standings.

Team News

Sevilla has been hit all season long with ongoing injuries that needed constant changes in the lineup, leading to many results below expectations. The hosts have six players in the recovery room who are set to miss the remainder of the season. Although Erik Lamela, Nemanja Gudelj, Oliver Torres and Djibril Sow will not feature against Cadiz, Quique Sanchez Flores has other valuable players to fill the void.

Cadiz

After a challenging season marked by instability and disappointing results, Cadiz faces an uphill battle to avoid relegation. With only three rounds remaining, the visitors find themselves five points away from safety—a nearly impossible gap to fill. Despite making a positive impression in the last round by narrowly defeating Getafe at home (1-0) Cadiz continues to struggle in away games.

As the season draws to a close, the visitors have failed to secure a single away victory (with 6 draws and 11 defeats). This trend is unlikely to change when they face Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium. Additionally, Cadiz’s upfront ongoing issues, characterized by a lack of sharpness in front of the opposition’s goal, have resulted in scoring only three goals in the last five rounds.

The upcoming match against Sevilla is critical for Cadiz’s survival hopes. Mauricio Pellegrino’s team can’t afford to lose, especially with Las Palmas and Almeria awaiting them in the final two rounds. However, there’s a glimmer of hope in Athletic Bilbao who will play against Celta Vigo, the first team above the floating line with a 5-point lead over Cadiz.

Team News

Luis Hernandez, Fede San Emeterio, veteran Jose Mari and Jorge Mere are all out and will not recover in time to face Sevilla. However, the win against Getafe raised the belief that Cadiz’s camp is now travelling to Sevilla in a great mood before facing another defining moment.

Key factors to consider

  • Sevilla recovered greatly under manager Quique Sanchez Florez losing only 3 of their last 11 games played in La Liga
  • The hosts defeated Granda in the last match played at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan with a no-contest score (3-0)
  • The visitors are engaged in a difficult battle to avoid relegation having already one foot in the hole
  • Cadiz needs a miracle to avoid the drop this term having a five-point deficit to overcome in the last three rounds

Conclusion

Even if they defeated Getafe at home and continued to show indications of improvement, the visitors have another tough test on Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan when they play Sevilla. With a victory over Cadiz, Sevilla hopes to erase the disappointment of the season and maintain their chances of finishing in the top half of the standings.

Verdict: Sevilla wins
