Eibar vs Cadiz Preview
The Friday night game in LaLiga this week comes from Ipurua and it sees two of the pre-season relegation favourites meet. The winners here will end the evening in the top six though and Cadiz will climb above Real Madrid and into 2nd place if they win this match which would be a remarkable achievement for the newly promoted side.
It won’t be easy though against an Eibar side that appears to be finding their feet again after a slow start. They’ve taken 7 points from their last 3 games including an excellent away win at Sevilla last time out. They only had 3 attempts on goal in that match to their opponents’ 21 but they defended well and hung on for a shock victory. Both of their victories this season have come on the road though and they are struggling to turn Ipurua into a fortress again with no fans present.
Cadiz have also been away day specialists and they take a 100% road record into this game. They are yet to even concede a goal on their travels so far with wins to nil coming against Huesca, Athletic Club and Real Madrid despite Alvaro Cervera’s men having less than 30% possession in all those games.
It promises to be a fascinating tactical battle here. Even in the Segunda Division, Cadiz were happy to let their opponents have the ball and strike on the break. It’ll be interesting to see how José Luis Mendilibar sets his team up as his Eibar side are known for their tendency to press high and defend a high line which in theory could play into Cadiz’s hands.

- Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 4 Eibar Wins, 1 Cadiz Win, 1 Draw.

Eibar vs Cadiz Predictions
Score Prediction: Eibar 0-1 Cadiz
Both of these sides seem more comfortable playing away right now. Eibar haven’t been great at home for a while with just 2 wins from their last 11 league games at Ipurua. They’ve only managed to score once so far this season in 4 home games and they’ve had a pretty decent run of fixtures too which suggests Cadiz have every chance of staging another smash and grab here.
