Real Betis – Cadiz
La Liga continues with a fresh set of fixtures as Real Betis welcome Cadiz to the Benito Villamarin Stadium on Friday. The visitors will be looking to get one over their hosts after losing both home and away last season. Betis enjoyed an impressive 2020-21 La Liga campaign where they finished sixth and secured a place in the UEFA Europa League. However, they were denied a second consecutive opening-day victory last Saturday as they played out a 1-1 draw against RCD Mallorca.
Similarly, Cadiz were denied a dream start to the campaign last time out when they played out a 1-1 draw with Levante. Despite the result, head coach Alvaro Cervera will be impressed by his side’s resilient performance and will hope they can carry on with that momentum.
With six wins from their 10 previous meetings, Real Betis head into the game as the superior side in this fixture. Cadiz have managed just one win, while three games have ended in draws. Real Betis head into Friday’s game on a three-game winning run against Cadiz. However, each of the three games ended in a 1-0 scoreline and we predict another cagey affair.
This match will be played on 20/08/2021 at 22:00.
