Barcelona vs Cadiz 21/02/21
Barcelona and Cadiz go head-to-head at Camp Nou in a potentially high-scoring La Liga contest. Four of their last five top-flight H2Hs have featured over 2.5 FT goals.
Barcelona are enjoying an impressive seven-game winning streak in La Liga, though they did succumb to a dismal 4-1 home defeat to PSG in the Champions League midweek. Ronald Koeman’s men have netted an average of 3.16 goals per game across their last six La Liga outings, finding the net in both halves on five occasions in that run. Camp Nou has been a fortress the Braca supporters have been hoping for this season, with the ‘Blaugrana’ suffering only one loss in their 11 La Liga matches here (W7, D1), courtesy of a 3-1 reverse against Real Madrid on Matchday 7. Additionally, Barcelona have been relentless against Andalusian sides in recent times, picking up 16 victories in their last 19 home La Liga fixtures against such opponents (D2, L1).
Meanwhile, Cadiz have lost their last four La Liga matches by an aggregate scoreline of 15-3, conceding over 1.5 first-half goals on each occasion. Álvaro Cervera has to address his team’s first-half struggles on the road that have seen Cadiz let in a league second-high 11 first-half away goals this season. Interestingly, after winning each of their opening four La Liga trips ‘to nil,’ ‘El Submarino Amarillo’ have failed to win any of their last seven (D2, L5), conceding 3+ goals per game four times in the process. Despite securing a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture back in December 2020, the visitors lament a catastrophic 91.7% loss-rate against Barcelona in La Liga after losing 11 of their 12 top-flight meetings. Indeed, they have lost each of their five La Liga trips to Camp Nou, returning a horrendous -14 goal difference from those visits (GF:2, GA:16).
