Cadiz will be hoping to back up the fine display from the 0-2 beating of Almeria on the road this Monday when they are set to drop the curtain to the Matchday No 14 in Spanish Segunda Division. The victory would see them go off Reus Deportiu in the middle of the standings with only two points separating the two likes at this stage.
The head to head stats does not promise a thrilling evening of football though with their lone two previous meetings offering no more than a single goal. It ended up in Cadiz’s net back in September last year when Reus Deportiu snatched a narrow 1-0 win in front of their fans. The rematch at Ramon de Carranza saw a goalless draw eight months later.
Both likes will come into this tie on the back of fine defensive performances in the recent weeks as well. The hosts have made it two clean sheets in a row last Sunday as they drew 0-0 with Rayo Vallecano prior to clinching the mentioned away win at Almeria. It was the midfielder Salvi (Salvador Perez) who bagged a brace to become only the fourth man who has scored goals for Submarino in this term of Segunda. David Barral is the one who’ll represent the biggest threat to the visiting defensive line having notched three goals so far for his outfit.
Lopez Garai’s men have, however, been anything but easy to break down so far in the season and they’ll come into this having conceded no more than three goals in last five league outings on the road. The last weekend saw them beat Sporting Gijon 1-0 at home thanks to a goal from their star man Luis Gustavo.
