Cadiz vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: 14 August 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla (Cadiz).
Real Sociedad will start the season with the trip to Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla where they will take on Cadiz on Sunday afternoon.
The Basques enter the new La Liga campaign on a high after the acquisition of Celta Vigo’s star Brais Mendez for €14 million this summer.
They have also acquired young talented forward from Angers (Ligue 1), Mohamed Ali Cho. Head coach Imanol Alguacil has a strong firepower on display in the final third with the likes of Mikel Oyarzabal, Alexander Isak, and Brais Mendez.
Sociedad did not quite shine in pre-season, losing the previous two tests against Eibar (1-2) and Athletic Bilbao (1-0).
Nevertheless, they are still pretty big favorites here against Cadiz who have barely avoided the drop to Segunda Division football last time out.
Cadiz only managed to survive in the elite thanks to the final round’s away win over already-relegated Alaves (0-1).
They thus ended the campaign with a single point advantage on Granada who were eliminated to the second class.
Cadiz only managed to register three of their eight wins in the previous term of La Liga at their Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla.
They have scored only 19 goals in 19 league outings on the home patch. Knowing that Real Sociedad are generally known as one of the best defensive sides in the league (they shipped 37 goals in 38 outings last season), we would not be surprised to see the visitors keeping things quiet at the back on the opening day.
Cadiz vs Real Sociedad Head-to-head
- Real Sociedad also have tradition to back them up here.
- They won seven and drew three of the previous ten outings against Cadiz.
- Real Sociedad have scored five unanswered goals in two wins over Cadiz in the previous term of La Liga.
Cadiz vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Real Sociedad have the quality and the tradition on their side going into this fixture and we see the value in backing the away victory at the 2.20 odds.
Since Cadiz have failed to score more than one goal in three successive defeats in the pre-season outings, we also like Sociedad to keep a clean sheet bet at the odds of 2.50.
