Cadiz vs Extremadura
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Tuesday, 4 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon de Carranza (Cadiz).
Cadiz are finally looking ahead of an easier fixture on Sunday when they play host to bottom-half Extremadura at Estadio Ramon de Carranza.
El Submarino Amarillo had the toughest schedule possible in the past month, but they managed to stay unbeaten along the way, going unbeaten in 11 subsequent league affairs.
Alvaro’s men head into this on the back of five successive draws, but it is a decent return if we know they’ve played the likes of Malaga (4th placed), Deportivo La Coruna (7th placed), Osasuna (1st placed) and Granada (2nd placed) in last four rounds.
Cadiz picked up reputation for having one of the strongest defensive lines in the league and they proved it in the last couple of months. The hosts did not ship two or more goals in any of last seven league outings in spite of such deadly schedule.
Cadiz vs Extremadura: Head-to-head
The two teams did not have the opportunity to come across each other prior to this season.
Extremadura came on top in their maiden head to head encounter played in mid-October last year (2-1).
Cadiz vs Extremadura: Prediction
The visitors will come into this pressure-free having already secured survival in the second tier of Spanish football. They’ve done so thanks to an amazing streak of six wins in last eight games.
Manuel Mosquera is the man to take credits for such an amazing spell of form as he shifted team’s fortunes around completely since taking charge in February this year.
Azulgranas were extremely tough to break down lately as they kept their net untouched in four of last five matches.
Knowing about Cadiz’s impressive defensive displays throughout the entire season, Under 2.5 goals FT has to be the main betting call at 1.61 odds here.
The match has a much bigger importance for the hosts who are level on points with 7th-placed Deportivo La Coruna and desperately need a result here with just two games left to play (only top six teams get to feature promotional play-offs in the post-season).
Cadiz vs Extremadura: Bet Tips
Cadiz to win @ 1.45 (9/20)
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.61 (8/13).
