Barcelona vs Cadiz Prediction & Match Preview

Barcelona vs Cadiz
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).

After rolling over Alaves 5-1 at the weekend, Barcelona will be looking to stay in the title race when they face Cadiz at their Camp Nou on Sunday afternoon. 

The Catalan giants head into the match following the Champions League clash with PSG, meaning that Ronald Koeman is likely to mix the squad. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Leo Messi has found his best form of late. 

The likes of Araujo, Coutinho, Fati, and Roberto remain in the recovery room, but Pique has overcome his injury.

Cadiz, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Catalonia. 

Since the Yellow Submarine are not regarded as good travellers, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Barcelona’s party at Camp Nou. Marcos Mauro is back from suspension for the newcomers.

Team News:

Barca will again be without the services of Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho and Sergi Roberto through injury, while the match is also likely to come too soon for Ronald Araujo, who is battling an ankle issue.

Gerard Pique made his return from injury against PSG and should continue in the heart of the defence, and the bulk of the side that featured in the Champions League is likely to remain in place.

There could be a change in the final third of the field, though, with Trincao, who scored twice in last weekend's win over Alaves, potentially joining Messi and Antoine Griezmann in attack.

As for Cadiz, Marcos Mauro is back following a suspension and should take the place of Juan Cala, who will now serve a ban due to his yellow card against Athletic last time out.

Augusto Fernandez, Carlos Akapo and Luismi Quezada are all still on the sidelines through injury, while Jens Jonsson and Alex Fernandez remain doubts for the visitors.

Alvaro Negredo will start in one of the two positions in the final third and is likely to be joined by Anthony Lozano despite the presence of Ruben Sobrino.

Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Ter Stegen; Dest, Pique, Lenglet, Alba; Pedri, Busquets, De Jong; Trincao, Messi, Griezmann

Cadiz possible starting lineup:
Ledesma; Iza, Alcala, Mauro, Espino; Sanchez, Jonsson, Fali, Perea; Lozano, Negredo
