Cadiz vs. Sevilla Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

In an attempt to turn around their winless October, Sevilla will face Cadiz at Nuevo Mirandilla on Saturday evening in Spain’s top-flight football league, La Liga.

Match Preview

The 2023-24 La Liga campaign has been underwhelming for Sevilla so far, as they find themselves in the 13th position with nine points.

Similarly, Cadiz is placed 16th in the table with the same number of points.

Cadiz is currently enjoying their best run in La Liga since the early 1990s.

Having competed at this level for four consecutive seasons, they finished 12th, 17th, and 14th in their previous three campaigns.

While Cadiz is expected to be one of the teams fighting against relegation this season, their start to the campaign has been in line with expectations.

With two wins, three draws, and five defeats from their ten matches, they have accumulated nine points and are positioned 16th on the table.

Sergio Gonzalez’s side is only two points behind Getafe in the 11th position, indicating that their situation could change quickly.

However, their recent form has been disappointing, having lost their last three matches against Atletico Madrid, Girona, and Valencia.

Cadiz’s last victory came against Villarreal in early September.

Their home form has been relatively strong, winning two, drawing two, and losing just one of their five games in front of their own supporters.

On the other hand, Sevilla, under the guidance of head coach Diego Alonso, recently played two matches.

In their first La Liga game under Alonso, they took the lead against Real Madrid but ended up sharing points in a 1-1 draw.

They then suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Arsenal in the Champions League.

Sevilla’s form has been disappointing across all competitions, as they are winless in their last five games, including three league matches.

However, it is important to note that two of those fixtures were against Barcelona and Real Madrid.

In La Liga this season, Sevilla has recorded two wins, three draws, and four defeats, accumulating nine points and currently occupying the 13th position.

The supporters will be expecting an improvement in the coming months, aiming to avoid a repeat of their disappointing 2022-23 campaign when they finished 12th.
