Cadiz CF vs Osasuna Prediction & Betting tips
Kick-off for the 90th season in the Spanish upper house of football. However, the beginning is asymmetrical and on the first day of play only seven of the ten games are regularly on the program. The teams that were still on the international stage at the beginning of August, as well as the newly promoted Elche, are still free of play and will only intervene on the 2nd and 3rd matchdays.
Interesting games will still take place without a spectator. For example, there will be a duel between newly promoted Cadiz and Osasuna on Saturday evening.
The euphoria after the La Liga return speaks for the home side, while Osasuna succeeded a year ago and secured relegation with strong performances. Staying in the league will be the main goal of both teams in the current season.
A successful start is targeted, but a completely open game is expected from the best bookmakers on the market. In the duel between Cadiz and Osasuna, almost completely balanced odds are offered on the three-way market. A favorite cannot be identified, the more exciting the start will be.
The Andalusians are back in the big business. After a year-long stint in the Primera Division in 2005/06, things went downhill, and in the meantime even the third division was home to the yellow-blue team. However, the development in recent years has been extremely positive and with the successful coach Alvaro Cervera the return to the Spanish upper house of football was fixed.
Head coach Cervera is closely linked to the positive development in recent years. In April 2016 he took over the club and only a little later fixed the promotion to LaLiga 2. The club established itself in the extended top right away and only narrowly missed the promotion.
In 2019/20 the time had finally come and the promotion was fixed as the first team and thus the return after 15 years was fixed. Only because of three defeats at the end of the season, Cadiz missed winning the title in the extremely balanced LaLiga 2.
In order to be well prepared for the coming season, the club did not remain idle and changed the squad in large parts. While the previous staff is largely trusted on the defensive, the offensive has been almost completely replaced. Old hand Alvaro Negredo (35 years old) should ensure the necessary goals with his experience in the fight to stay in the league.
In addition to Negredo, ex-Schalke Jurado is also known to many fans. The season opener will be a special game for goalkeeper and captain Alberto Cifuentes. At the tender age of 41, the goalkeeper fulfilled a long-awaited dream and made his first appearance in the Spanish LaLiga.
Preparation results are always to be treated with caution, but the newly formed team presented itself quite pleasantly. Cadiz remained unbeaten against the three second division clubs Malaga, Espanyol (one win each) and Almeria (draw).
The club from the bullfighting city of Pamplona made their comeback in the Spanish LaLiga last season and could describe themselves as a surprise of the season. At no point in the 2019/20 season was the relegation battle an issue and ultimately the team of head coach Jagoba Arrasate reached an outstanding tenth place in the table.
With a balanced 13-13-12 record, Osasuna collected 52 points and was in very good shape, especially after the restart. In the last eight LaLiga games Osasuna only suffered a 3-0 defeat in the away game at Betis Sevilla. In the seven remaining games, the Red-Blue celebrated five wins and two draws.
Given the strong shape at the end of the current season, a tip on the guests should be considered between Cadiz and Osasuna. Even if there are no sounding names in the squad, Osasuna should by no means be underestimated, because the team is considered an extremely unpleasant opponent who acts with a lot of passion.
A look at the injured list speaks a little against the prognosis for the guest victory. Arrsate will be forced to improvise on the first day of play. Top scorer Chimy Avila tore his cruciate ligament and will most likely not be available again until March 2021. The gaucho is considered one of the few stars in the squad.
But not only Avila is not available, Ruben Garcia (attacking midfield) as well as Brandon and Marc Cardona (both strikers) will not appear in the squad due to injuries. A goal spectacle is by no means to be expected, so between Cadiz and Osasuna the tip on a game with few goals is the focus.
