Barcelona travel to Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla to face Cadiz in La Liga action on Thursday. This will be the second of the three games they will be playing in six days.

The Catalan giants are unbeaten in the league after four games but dropped points in a disappointing encounter against Granada in their last outing.

Cadiz secured their first win of the 2021-22 campaign against Celta Vigo on Saturday. Anthony Lozano and Alfonso Espino's first-half goals proved enough to secure the win.

Midweek action, you say? 🌟That's right, #GetafeAtleti kicks off Matchday 6 tonight from 7.30pm CEST! 🔝 #LaLigaSantander 🔝

Cadiz vs Barcelona Head-to-Head

Barcelona have been the dominant side in this fixture and have recorded 19 wins so far. Cadiz have just two wins to their name while four games have ended in draws.

They last met in league action at Camp Nou in February. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with Alex Fernández canceling out Lionel Messi's first-half strike with an 89th-minute equalizer.

Cadiz vs Barcelona Prediction

Both teams have been without a clean sheet this season. Barcelona settled for a draw despite having 78% possession against Granada and the squad does not look confident at the moment.

Cadiz will be buoyed by their first win of the campaign and will be hoping to produce a repeat of that performance here. All things considered, we predict the game will end in a stalemate.

Prediction: Cadiz 1-1 Barcelona.
