Cadiz vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain – La Liga
Date: Monday, 29 August 2022
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla.
Bilbao narrowly missed out on a ticket to one of the European competitions the last season from the Spanish top flight. Meanwhile Cadiz were lucky to have avoided getting relegated to the second division.
They were placed 17th in a table of 20 and all through the campaign they had managed to post just 8 wins. They could not even manage to score goals at the rate of at least one per fixture in the previous league competition and at the end of the run they had a -16 goal difference as well.
Even this time around they have started their campaign on a totally worrying note. They have a 100 percentage losing record so far and they are the only team to yet to find the back of the net at least once.
Meanwhile Bilbao finished eighth in the table the last season and missed out on the cut off for European qualification by just 4 points. As such they will be determined to make amends this time around and have started on a good stretch of performances as well.
They have a 100 percentage unbeaten record so far and they are also yet to let in one goal into their nets. In fact they had registered a victory against Valencia in their latest league encounter as well.
Considering these observations as well as the head-to-head domination of Bilbao, expect a victory for them this Monday.
