It’s Matchday 5 in the new La Liga season and Barcelona will face a trip to Cadiz. Xavi’s side are coming off an incredible night in the Champions League as they defeated Viktoria Plzen 5-1 at the Camp Nou courtesy of a Robert Lewandowski hattrick. But the coach needs to make a decision as the Spanish giants will face Bayern Munich next Tuesday and it would be interesting to see if Barca would be rotated or not. However, Barca are surely in sensational form as they are currently 2nd in the League table having won 3 games and drawn 1, so they would be looking to continue their unbeaten form and catch Real Madrid. So they cannot afford to slip up as Villarreal too are at the same points as them.
But they are facing a team who has had a disastrous start in the new campaign as Cadiz is at the bottom of the La Liga table having scored 0 points and has conceded 10 goals and scored none too. So that is pretty much the worst start of a season any team can have. Hwever, they have a good record against Barcelona as Barca haven’t managed to defeat Cadiz since 2006 and even the last season, Barca slipped up against them with maybe cost them the title as they faced a draw and a humiliating defeat against them. All in all, it would be a fascinating encounter between these 2 teams.
