Sevilla vs Cadiz Preview and Prediction – May 15, 2024

In a crucial La Liga showdown, Sevilla will host Cadiz at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on May 15, 2024.

Sevilla is aiming to secure a top-half finish, while Cadiz fights desperately to avoid relegation.

Match Preview

With three games left, Cadiz sits in 18th place, five points from safety. Sevilla is in 12th place with 41 points.

Sevilla risks matching or falling short of last season’s 12th-place finish, their worst since being relegated in 1999-2000.

However, with three points separating them from 10th-placed Getafe, Sevilla could still reach the top half of the table with a good run in their last three games against Cadiz, Barcelona, and Athletic Bilbao.

Unfortunately for Sevilla, they head into Wednesday’s match after a 3-2 away loss to Villarreal.

Youssef En-Nesyri scored twice to give Sevilla a 2-1 lead and reach 50 La Liga goals, but Villarreal scored in the 84th and 97th minutes, handing Sevilla their first defeat in almost two months.

Sevilla will now return to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, where they have won four of their last five matches, including their previous two home games against Mallorca and Granada.

They have the chance to win three consecutive home league games for the first time since January and February 2023.

Relegation-threatened Cadiz claimed a much-needed win in Saturday’s home game against Getafe, closing the gap to safety to five points with three matches left against Sevilla, Las Palmas, and Almeria.

Ruben Alcaraz kept his cool from the penalty spot to score the decisive goal at the Nuevo Mirandilla, securing Cadiz’s fifth league win of the season and their first victory since beating Granada at the end of March.

They will now try to clinch consecutive league wins for the first time since May 2021, knowing that a failure to collect all three points could see them relegated with two games to spare.

If Cadiz suffers defeat at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, their relegation will be sealed, especially if Celta Vigo secures a victory and both Rayo Vallecano and Mallorca manage draws.

Even a draw may not be enough to stay in the top flight if Celta, Rayo, and Mallorca all win their games against Athletic Bilbao, Granada, and Osasuna.

Unfortunately for Cadiz, their survival hopes are hurt by the fact that they have not won an away league game this season, with their 17 away matches resulting in six draws and 11 defeats.

Team News & Updates:

Sevilla’s Erik Lamela and Nemanja Gudelj remain out with knee injuries, while Oliver Torres and Djibril Sow are sidelined with shoulder and foot problems, respectively.

Quique Sanchez Flores still can’t call on 23-year-old forward Isaac Romero, who has missed the last two matches with a hamstring injury.

Loic Bade is set to feature in a back three alongside Sergio Ramos and Kike Salas after serving a one-match suspension.

Meanwhile, Cadiz boss Mauricio Pellegrino is without Luis Hernandez, Jorge Mere, Rominigue Kouame, Jose Mari, and Fede San Emeterio.

Slavia Prague loanee Aiham Ousou is unlikely to be fit after missing the last two matches with an ankle injury.

Chris Ramos is walking a disciplinary tightrope, being one yellow card away from a one-match suspension.

Prediction & Analysis:

In a high-stakes match, Sevilla holds the upper hand with a strong home record, winning four out of their last five matches at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Cadiz’s struggles away from home may cost them dearly, as they have yet to secure an away win this season.

Despite Cadiz’s determination, Sevilla’s form and home advantage are likely to see them secure a narrow victory.
