The 2021-22 edition of La Liga is back in action with another set of matches this week as Celta Vigo take on Cadiz on Friday. Both teams have been inconsistent so far and will need to step up in this match.
Cadiz are in 16th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and are yet to win a match this season. The away side suffered a 2-0 defeat against Real Sociedad last week and will need to prove a point in this game.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, are in 18th place in the league table and have struggled this season. The Galician giants were thrashed by Real Madrid in their previous game and cannot afford a similar debacle this weekend.
Celta Vigo vs Cadiz Head-to-Head
Celta Vigo have a good record against Cadiz and have won six out of 12 matches played between the two teams. Cadiz have managed four victories against Celta Vigo and will need to step up this week.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in April this year and ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Both teams squandered chances on the day and will need to be more clinical this week.
