Cadiz vs Getafe Preview
Cadiz continue their hunt for that elusive first home victory of the season when Getafe visit the Nuevo Mirandilla this weekend. The visitors meanwhile will be hoping to move themselves well clear of any relegation trouble with three points.
It’s a game that will have a real bearing on the picture at the bottom. Cadiz would close to within 3 points of their opponents with a win, although having lost the reverse fixture 4-0, they’ll still effectively be two games back due to the H2H picture, unless something truly remarkable happens here.
There have been tentative signs of progress under new boss Sergio but his impact hasn’t really changed their outlook which still points towards relegation come May. Since picking up an important win at relegation rivals Levante, they’ve suffered defeats at Valencia and Mallorca, in league and cup respectively, before holding Celta Vigo to a goalless draw in their last home game. At home to the side 16th in the table, this has the feel of a “make or break” game for Cadiz’s season.
It’s not quite that extreme for Getafe. Their strong form over the winter under Quique Sanchez Flores has seen them turn a miserable situation into one that offers plenty of reason to be positive. They’ve a 5 point advantage on the drop-zone heading into the weekend with vast improvements at both ends of the pitch.
They were involved in an absolute cracker last weekend, as they scored 3 goals in 12 minutes at the Wanda Metropolitano but still ended up on the wrong end of a 4-3 scoreline against Atletico Madrid. That shouldn’t do too much to dampen the spirit in the Getafe camp with the South Madrid side having won 4 of their 6 games prior to that derby clash. They should still travel south with belief and it’ll be interesting to see just how bold they are willing to be.

Cadiz vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: Cadiz 0-0 Getafe
Getafe games at the moment are either goal-fests or very low-scoring and it feels more likely we’ll get the latter here. You sense the visitors, although capable of winning this match, may not roll the dice too much and would be content to leave Cadiz with a 6 point advantage on their opponents and direct relegation rivals (and superior H2H record) in tact.
