Cadiz CF vs Espanyol Prediction & Betting tips
The Cadiz is having a worse time in the league than the “parakeets”, and although both teams will take the hands of most non-regular players in the initial 11, logic indicates that Cadiz will devote less attention than Espanyol to the round.
The gaditanos did not win in league from 1-0 on the Almería of the 1ª day, until this past Saturday they obtained their 2º triumph by 1-2 in the “Anxo Carro” of the Lugo.
Despite this victory, the yellows remain in the relegation zone (19th), although they are tied in points with Zaragoza (18th), which would not drop right now.
Logically for Cadiz it is a priority to leave as soon as possible the descent zone to the infernal pit of the 2nd B to overcome these 1/16 Cup, and also the few who repeat Lugo’s lineup will have had 24 hours less rest than Espanyol that played Friday in Valladolid.
While in previous rounds Cadiz have eliminated good teams from the 2nd A as Tenerife and Zaragoza, I think it is feasible a victory of the 5th classified 1st Division in a Ramón de Carranza where they have already “scratched” this season Oviedo (1-1 ), Alcorcón (0-2), Gimnastic de Tarragona (1-1) and Sporting de Gijón (0-0).
On the part of Espanyol, with more closet bottom to play the Cup, it is expected that there will be in the initial 11 majority absolute majority of players of the 1st team with few or no minutes this season, spiced up with the presence of one of the kids of the B.
Players of the first squad who either did not make their debut with “Rubi” or had a few minutes just for reasons of injury or technical decision, such as goal Roberto Jiménez, Gonzalo Ávila ‘Pipa’, Álex López, Adrià Giner Pedrosa, Javi Puado, Roberto Rosales, Óscar Duarte, and Naldo Gomes, or kids from the subsidiary who have worked with the 1st team these last days as Lluís López, Carlos Doncel and Mohamed Ezzarfani.
It goes without saying that Espanyol lives a sweet moment during these weeks, since the 2nd position with which he finished the 9th day of the league after winning 0-2 in Huesca did not reach it since the 78-89 season.
The vallisoletano Verde goal in the 91st minute of the last league day deprived Espanyol of the 3 points in Pucela in the last minute (1-1), and also of the coliderato.
But this way and all the equipment stays in European zone, 5º classified, and to only 3 puntitos of the leader FC Barcelona.
One last factor that we have in favor of the bet (very important, by the way), is that the coach of Cádiz knows that he has after the match but he took considerably less time than Espanyol to prepare the league day.
I mean that Cádiz receives a direct rival for the permanence as Elche next Sunday at 12.00 noon, while Espanyol does not play until Monday at 9.00 pm when it receives Athletic Bilbao.
