Valencia vs Cadiz – Preview, H2H, Line-ups, Odds, Prediction | La Liga 2022/23 


Valencia will host Cadiz this Friday in the 16th round game of the 2022/23 La Liga season.

Venue: Estadio de Mestalla (Valencia) 

Key Statistics

Valencia have won just one of their previous seven LL matches (D3, L3).

They have won only one of their previous four league home matches (D1, L2). 

Valencia haven’t won a LL home game when conceding the first goal since March 2021 (D7, L5).

Cadiz have had no wins in their last four league away trips (D2, L2).

They have scored just ten goals this season, which is the joint lowest in the league.

Head to head

Cadiz have won one and lost one of the last five games between both sides in all competitions.

However, the visitors have a poor record at the Estadio de Mestalla, failing to win any competitive game at the venue since 1988/89 (D2, L7).

Gennaro Gattuso and his Valencia side will look to get back to winning ways in La Liga when they take on Cadiz on Friday.

The hosts come into this tie fresh from a disappointing 2-1 derby defeat to Villarreal in their last La Liga outing. The game, which saw Valencia open the scoring through Edison Cavani, featured four shots on goal for Valencia against the eight shots recorded by Espanyol. Yet Gatusso stated that he believed the “fair thing would have been a draw.”  

Aside from the stats from the game, considering that his side have won just one of their previous seven La Liga matches (D3, L3), there certainly is more than just injustice at play in their poor outing.

However, Tuesday’s 3-0 Copa del Rey win at La Nucía might provide a boost, although Valencia have won only one of their previous four league home matches (D1, L2).

But a tendency for goals could see them bounce back in style here, as only Spanish giants Real Madrid (16) and Barcelona (18) have struck more times at home in La Liga this season than Valencia’s 15 goals.

Possible Valencia starting line-up

Giorgi Mamardashvili, Thierry Correia, Mouctar Diakhaby, Eray Cömart, Jose Gaya, Yunus Musah, Nico González, André Almeida, Samu Castillejo, Édinson Cavani, Samuel Dias Lino.

Injured: Nico González 

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None 


While Valencia struggles to get back to the European spots in the table, Cadiz’s battle is coming out of the relegation zone.

The visitors arguably have an even worse season after a 1-1 draw with Almería last time out kept them in 19th place. That’s as low as they’ve sat at this stage of a top-flight campaign since 1990/91. 

Most concerningly, their current record of W2, D6, and L7 is identical to that of this time last season, when they finished only one point above safety, so perhaps the Andalucíans are heading towards some more dropzone drama.

The Pirates have no victories in their last four league away trips (D2, L2), while they have also failed to win any competitive game at the Estadio de Mestalla since 1988/89 (D2, L7). And so, a possible good result here seems unlikely unless they can conjure up some magic and win just their third game of the season.

Possible Cadiz starting line-up

Jeremias Ledesma, Isaac Carcelen Valencia, Fali, Luis Hernandez, Alfonso Espino, Theo Bongonda, Rubén Alcaraz, Álex Fernández, Brian Ocampo, Ruben Sobrino, Alvaro Negredo.

Injured: None

Doubtful: Victor Chust, Joseba Aldua, Jon Ander Garrido

Suspended: None
