Real Betis continue their battle for a place in the Champions League spots this weekend when they host Cadiz. Both sides will be desperate for the points, as they come into this crucial weekend of the season just shy of achieving their targets for the season.
La Liga Preview
The race for a place in the top four is heating up in La Liga, and Real Betis has been one of the sides that have been able to take full advantage of the dip in the form of Real Sociedad. They remain fifth in the standings, but they sit just three points behind their rivals. This weekend, they could move into the Champions League spots if they are able to gain victory by a wide winning margin.
However, Betis will need to respond. They were beaten for the eighth time this term in their previous match, which ended a four-game unbeaten run. That defeat was suffered on the road against Atletico Madrid, with the hosts snatching maximum points after breaking the deadlock with just four minutes remaining.
Cadiz will be happy that they sit outside of the bottom three at present, but they could still be some way away from fighting off relegation for good. They come into this fixture sitting 15th in the overall standings, but they are just a point above the bottom three places. They have gone four without a win in La Liga, with three of their matches over that period ending in draws.
However, they will need to get back on track this weekend, as they were beaten in their previous La Liga match by Sevilla. That was a disappointing performance by Cadiz, as they managed to record just three shots on target in the home defeat.
Real Betis vs Cadiz Head to Head
Two of the previous three league meetings between these sides have ended in draws. However, Betis has registered three wins in five La Liga meetings, with two of those victories being recorded on the road. Their last home win against Cadiz was secured in December 2020.
Real Betis vs Cadiz Prediction
We expect the home side to bounce back from their recent defeat this weekend. They will need to play more on the front foot than they did against Atletico, but we expect that to be the case, as they record a 2-0 home win.
