Real Betis: W-D-D-W-L
Cadiz will look to record just their second win this season when they host Manuel Pellegrini’s side on Wednesday.
The hosts have picked up just one win this season, and sit in 19th place in the La Liga standings, with six points, after picking up a further five defeats and three draws.
Sergio Soriano’s side have picked up three draws in their last three games, and the Spanish coach will be eager to see his side improve on their recent performance and take all three points from Real Betis, a feat which will take all they have got and more.
Cadiz stand a chance of climbing out of the relegation zones, albeit pending the result of the other teams above them, with just two points separating them from 17th-placed Real Valladolid.
Los Piratas finished in 17th last season after a gruelling battle to avoid relegation, and look set to be drawn into yet another battle for survival unless they start putting together a run of good results to put them in good stead come the end of May next year.
Cadiz came close to stealing their first win of the season last week against Girona when they held on to their one-goal lead through Alex Fernandez only to concede a late penalty which allowed Christian Stuani to equalise for the home side. Sergio Soriano will now be keen to see his side avoid a repeat and go for all three points this time.
Possible Cadiz starting line-up
Jeremias Ledesma; Carcelen Valencia, Luis Hernandez, Victor Chust, Alphonso Espino; Ivan Alejo, Fede San Emeterio, Ruben Alvarez, Alex Fernandez; Ruben Sobrino Alvaro Negredo.
Real Betis have stuttered in recent weeks to see their early season success come under threat.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have picked up just one win in their last three La Liga games and now sit fourth in the La Liga standings, level on points with fifth-placed Real Sociedad and third-placed Atletico Madrid.
The Chilean coach will now be keen to see his side pick up another three points following their win over Almeria last weekend.
Real Betis have been in fine form in the Europa League this season, and are yet to taste defeat.
However, Betis face intense competition to go all the way to the final in the European competitions, and head coach Manuel Pellegrini will be keen to see his side maintain their spot in the top four as a safety net for securing Champions League football come next season.
Real Betis have been utterly dominant in this fixture, with four wins and just one draw in their last five games, Los Verdiblancos will therefore fancy their chances of picking up yet another win over struggling Cadiz.
Possible Real Betis starting line-up
Rui Silva; Martin Montoya, German Pezzella, Victor Ruiz Torre, Alex Moreno; Guido Rodriguez, William Carvalho; Rodrigo Sanchez, Sergio Canales, Luis Henríquez; Borja Iglesias.
Injured: Juanmi Jimenez, Nabil Fekir
Doubtful: Victor Camarasa
