Barcelona are back in action in La Liga this weekend as they face off against a feisty Cadiz outfit at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza on Saturday. The Catalan giants have been resurgent under Ronald Koeman over the past few weeks and will want to build on their excellent run of results with a victory in this fixture.

Cadiz have exceeded expectations this season but have encountered their fair share of issues in recent fixtures. The home side played out a 1-1 draw against Elche last weekend and will hope to take something away from this game.

Barcelona, on the other hand, have registered three clean sheets on the trot and have scored 16 goals in their last five games. Ronald Koeman rested some of his key players in the 3-0 victory against Ferencvaros during the week and will look to move further up in the standings with a victory against Cadiz.


Cadiz vs Barcelona Head-to-Head

Barcelona have played only two fixtures against Cadiz since the turn of the century and have unsurprisingly flawless against the newly-promoted side. Cadiz have never managed a victory against Barcelona and will want to make history this weekend.

The previous meeting between the two sides took place in 2006 and ended in a narrow 1-0 victory for Barcelona. Cadiz are capable of pulling off an upset this season but will face a stern challenge against an in-form Catalan outfit.

Cadiz vs Barcelona Prediction

Barcelona have scored seven goals in the last two games and hold all the cards going into this fixture. Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho will be fresh going into this game and will have to step up to the plate for an in-form Barcelona outfit.

Cadiz have been well below their best this past week and cannot afford to slip up against Barcelona. The Catalan giants have an impressive array of talented players and should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Cadiz 0-3 Barcelona
