Cadiz take on the visitors Athletic Bilbao in the round 3 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Monday, August 29th at Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla (Cadiz).
Cadiz are not a regular visitor in the top Spanish football division. In its entire history, more than a century old, the “yellow submarine” has spent a dozen and a half seasons in the Primera. So the fact that it turns out to stay there for the 3rd year in a row is already a considerable achievement. True, if after the promotion that took place in 2020, the newcomer climbed up to 12th place, then 1 point separated him from relegation. Sergio Gonzalez Soriano, who came during the draw, remembered for his similar work in Valladolid, pulled his new wards to the 17th, “saving” place. But in the new temporade, so far it has not been possible to score a goal or cling to points. True, the opponents were not easy either: at first they lost 0-1 to Real Sociedad at home, then there were 0-2 on the Osasuna field. However, ahead of the team, which is already in the relegation zone, there is a rather complicated calendar, and it is not clear when and where it will be possible to catch on for points.

Athletic were left again without European cups last season. There were attempts to prove themselves in the cup and struggle for fairly high places in the Primera, but in the end, the Basques finished in 8th position there, 4 points behind Villarreal. This ended an era of Marcelino in Bilbao - not particularly long, but started successfully, with the Super Cup won. But then there were defeats in the cup finals, and in La Liga, it seems, the results are lower than expected. In addition, Ernesto Valverde returns to the San Mames. It was because of the good results that this mentor showed with Athletic that he was called not so long ago to Barcelona itself. In general, the "Basques" with the new-old mentor play in the pragmatic, cautious manner that is characteristic of the "Ant". He started with a goalless draw against Mallorca. And this was followed by a minimal victory at home in a meeting with Valencia - Berenguer scored the only goal before the break.
After the return of Cadiz to the Primera, they strictly alternate victories with Athletic. And all 4 times these teams won invariably during away matches. Bookmakers believe that now there will be a boring duel. And, most importantly, the visitors from Bilbao will be able to continue this curious trend by winning this time as well. We bet Ernesto Valverde's men on Monday night to win.
Prediction for the match: Athletic Bilbao to win.
