Cadiz vs Real Sociedad
Cadiz will be playing the role of headhunters this weekend as they host Real Sociedad over at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza for their 10th La Liga fixture this term.
They have been defying expectations in their first season back in the Spanish top-flight and they are hopeful that their momentum can help them secure another positive result against a top-tier squad.
Sitting on top of the league standings are their visitors in Real Sociedad, who have been on a remarkable rise that no one saw coming.
La Real have 20 points as of this writing, and an away victory here can propel themselves to a larger gap over their domestic rivals.
Two experienced tacticians will figure in a fascinating chess match as Cadiz’s Alvaro Cervera and La Real’s Imanol Alguacil meet anew.
So who will get the better of the other come Saturday night? Today, let’s take a look at both of these teams with this match preview courtesy of SBOTOP.
Cadiz punching above their weight
Team manager Alvaro Cervera should be given a lot of credit to Cadiz’s superb run this season.
After making it back to top-flight status, most pundits saw them as an early relegation candidate. But here they are now sitting at the sixth spot at the table.
Their start was not a smooth ride as they were just getting acclimated to the competition. Cadiz suffered losses against Osasuna and Sevilla, while they emerged victorious against Huesca at Athletic Bilbao.
But when they made their trip at the Bernabeu, Cadiz shocked everyone when they defeated the defending champions in Real Madrid.
Choco Lozano scored at the 16th minute and Alvaro Cervera’s men held down the fort successfully until the very end, as Los Blancos only had two shots on target for the whole night.
Cadiz were clearly on a high after that match. However, they were dealt with a harsh reality when they were drubbed by Atletico Madrid in the last time out.
Now it is time for the Yellow Submarine to show their mettle as another big test awaits them this weekend.
Veteran striker Alvaro Negredo and winger Salvi Sanchez lead Cadiz in scoring with two goals each so far and they will be the marked men for La Real’s defence.
Real Sociedad creating their own destiny
La Real are always on the outside looking in as far as the title race is concerned, but now they have a golden opportunity to take control of their destiny.
Imanol Alguacil’s side is La Liga’s most prolific club as they have been providing us multiple La Liga 2020 highlights from both sides of the pitch.
An outlet of those highlights is David Silva, whose creativity and leadership inspires his new club to dream big.
Manchester City were sad to see the influential midfielder go last summer after spending most of his career at the Etihad. But at 34 years old, he doesn’t fit into the Sky Blues’ preferred timeline.
Real Sociedad fans were skeptical on Silva’s arrival especially when Martin Odegaard left the squad, but now he has found his new home.
David Silva can now enjoy his last few years playing for a team on the rise and winning one more domestic league title should be a perfect epilogue to his decorated football career.
With Cadiz not really known as a mainstay in La Liga, their matches against Real Sociedad are rare. This season marks Cadiz’s first season back in top-flight for over 14 years.
In a small sample size of six games, Real Sociedad own the advantage in the overall head-to-heads with three wins along with three draws. Cadiz have yet to win over La Real in the modern era.

The La Liga 2020 odds have the away team winning in this match, although the disparity between these two clubs aren’t far off.
Real Sociedad are priced at 1.93 to win, while Cadiz are placed at 4.00 and a draw is at 3.35 in the 1X2 market.
Goals can come in bunches here although Real Sociedad will provide the biggest share. Hence, I would recommend Total Goal 2-3 @ 1.89 or Over 2.50 @ 2.24 as alternative bets as well.
While Cadiz have been raising eyebrows this season, facing an in-form Real Sociedad perhaps will be their biggest test yet.
Although they can give La Real a run for their money at home, Imanol Alguacil’s men should be table to take care of business to grab their sixth win in a row.
