Granada vs Cadiz
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.
The Nasrids are placed eighth in the table, trailing four points below the final European spot. They have been in good form lately, and with nothing to lose, they will definitely go after the seventh position.
However, they will have to hurry and will have to deliver some truly great performances as just five match-days remain till the end of the season.
They have been on a good run at home lately, and this gives them confidence to go after a win this weekend.
Meanwhile, the Pirates are a recently promoted squad. As far as they are concerned, they lack the experience or endurance to cope with the level of intensity in the top flight, and if they avoid a trip back to the Segunda, it would be considered a success.
As things stand, they have a rather comfortable lead in the mid-table, and should be able to finish above the relegation cut-off.
This sense of safety will reduce their motivation, and especially on the road where they have been finding it hard to put on good displays.
On top of that, Diego Martinez’s men also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.
For the reasons, expect a Granada victory this Sunday at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.
Granada vs Cadiz: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- The Nasrids were unbeaten in seven of their last eight overall fixtures.

Granada vs Cadiz Prediction
Martinez’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against none other than Barcelona. In the meantime, Alvaro Cervera’s men were held to a 1-1 draw against Valladolid.
Going on, the Nasrids had won three of their past five games, and they had remained unbeaten at home in 11 of their last 15 appearances.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 18 of their former 22 fixtures, and they have won just twice in their last fifteen road trips.
In addition, Martinez’s men also have a superb h2h record against this opponent over the years, and taking into account all these stats, expect a Granada victory this Sunday.
