Cadiz vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Real Sociedad have shown admirable improvement over the past year and will look to secure a UEFA Champions League spot in the coming months. The likes of Mikel Oyarzabal and Alexander Isak can be lethal on their day and will look to make their mark this weekend.
Cadiz escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth last campaign and will need a strong start to their campaign to avoid another close call this season. Real Sociedad are the better team on paper, however, and should be able to win this game.
