Alaves will be at home on Sunday to Cádiz, in this Season’s return fixture, having already faced them at the Estadio de Mendizorroza.

It’s a trip to the Estadio de Mendizorroza for twentieth placed Alaves on Sunday, as they take on eighteenth placed Cádiz.

Alaves to host Cádiz Amid Relegation Battle

Alaves will be full of confidence, going into this fixture on that back of two successive wins against Levante and Espanyol. They will need this if they are to retain their run.

Also, Alaves may not want to consider the prospect of relegation this season, but they are going to have to change their ways if they are to avoid it. Julio Velazquez’s squad have lost 11 of 17 fixtures. Now they have 8 matches won, 22 games lost and 7 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in twentieth place, with a total of 31 points having won eight matches, drawn seven fixtures, and lost 22 games.

When Alaves host Cádiz, they will do so on the back of seven wins, four draws, and seven losses on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Alaves on 34 points.

Alaves’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Julio Velazquez, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.

Struggling Cádiz go to the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Sunday and hope for a positive result

Whilst a disappointing 1-1 draw against R Madrid in their last game, is not the worst result they could have experienced, Cádiz will be keen to improve the result in this fixture.

Also, Cádiz are quickly becoming the LaLiga’s draw specialists, having recorded one in their last one game. With an eighteenth position in the league and 7 wins, 15 losses and 15 draws, they currently have 36 points in the League having won seven matches, drawn 15 meetings, and lost 15 games.

Cádiz have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won four matches, drawn six meetings, and lost eight games of their 18 League matches on the road this season.

Victory for Cádiz would take their points tally to 39 so far this season.

It is likely that five key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Sergio and his Cádiz team.

Regarding their historical duels the outcome of any game is never certain, but history would lead us to suspect that a draw is unlikely. Both teams have had an equal number of wins over 13 matches in the past seasons. Also, the two sides have drawn in six of their last nine matches encounters. October 2021 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and Cádiz took all three points winning 0-2 away.

Players to watch

For Alaves, Gonzalo Escalante is one of the top performing players after having scoredfive goals in 37 League matches this LaLiga Season, while Alvaro Negredo scoredfive goals in 37 League games this season for Cádiz.

Other standout players for Alaves are Gonzalo Escalante and Joselu with five goals each and for Cádiz are Ruben Sobrino and Lucas Perez with four goals and three goals respectively.
