Real Sociedad vs Cadiz
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Thursday, 12 May 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Reale Arena.
Sociedad are placed sixth in the table, and a 6th place finish is needed at the least in order to make it to the next edition of the Europa League.
However, they have been going on poor stretch of performances lately and this has caused their safety cushion of points to be reduced.
As of now they are just three points above the seventh-placed Villarreal, who are determined to come after this particular spot.
This puts Sociedad under pressure, and they will have to post some urgent points on the board if they want to avoid taking part in the Conference League.
However, they do have an opportunity coming up this Thursday. The reason being they are pitted against a struggling team that is battling to avoid relegation at the moment.
Cadiz are placed 16th in the table as of now, with a lead of just three points over the relegation cut off. It goes without saying that they have been one of the worst teams in the Spanish top flight this year, and they have struggled with their defense all along as well.
And it is kind of a given that they have not been that great in dealing with pressure.
It is expected that Sociedad will managed to secure a much-needed win this Thursday. Furthermore, considering the desperation of either team, expect goals to come in plenty as well.

Real Sociedad vs Cadiz Prediction & Analysis
Sociedad lost 2-1 on the road the last matchday against Levante.
But they were unbeaten in eight of their last eleven overall fixtures, and they had also remained so in four of their past five appearances at home. Do also note that three of these five home appearances had ended in wins for them.
On the other hand, Cadiz did win 3-0 at home the past game week against Elche. But they were winless in ten of their previous 14 overall fixtures, and they have won just twice on the road from their past 10 road trips.
And most importantly they have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years.
Taking into account these observations, anticipat a win for Sociedad. And considering the desperation of both the teams, expect goals to come in huge numbers as well.
