It’s normal to focus on the title race, but sometimes the race to avoid relegation is more fun. That’s the case in La Liga, where there are only three points between 13th and 19th place.
That’s why Sevilla vs. Cadiz can be classified as a crucial game. The winner could finally leave the relegation zone, while the loser sinks even more. Sevilla comes in as the betting online favorite, but it’s only won one match at home.
Let’s check the latest La Liga odds, stats, injury reports, and La Liga lines for Sevilla vs Cadiz. We’ve plenty of La Liga betting odds for you to consider.
Sevilla: Regaining Confidence
To be honest, I still can’t believe Sevilla is in the relegation zone. We’re talking about a team that has won the UEFA Europa League several times. It even played in the latest Group Stage of the UEFA Champions League!
Anyway, the team has been regaining some confidence by advancing in the Copa del Rey. Last Tuesday, it defeated Deportivo Alaves 1-0 in the Round of 16, with veteran Ivan Rakitic as the scorer. Prior to that, it crushed Linares 5-0, with Youssef En-Nesyri as Man of the Match after scoring a hat-trick.
Regarding La Liga, Los Rojiblancos began the year on the right foot by defeating Getafe 2-1, just like we predicted. Marcos Acuna and Rafa Mir were the scorers. Most recently, they lost 2-1 to Girona on Saturday. They really put up a good fight, but Yangel Herrera scored the winning goal in the 88th minute.
That has been Sevilla’s problem, not being consistent. Even so, it dominates the Las Vegas odds thanks to a -140 price. That’s generous, considering it’s 1-3-4 when playing at home. But again, we’re talking about a team that used to going mano a mano with Europe’s finest.
Cadiz: Showing Improvement
Yes, Cadiz is also in the relegation zone, but Los Piratas only lost one of their last five La Liga games. They defeated Valencia 1-0 in their last road game with Ruben Alcaraz as the scorer. Alcaraz scored only nine minutes into the game and the defense did the rest.
Most recently, they played host to Elche and drew 1-1. Once again, Los Piratas scored prior to the 10-minute mark, thanks to Brian Ocampo, but the defense couldn’t hold this time. Ezequiel Ponce scored the equalizer in the 81st minute.
Here’s another reason to consider wagering on the soccer betting underdog: it has won one more game on the road than at home. That and the +430 price it offers to win straight up make it a tempting option.
Individually, Alex Fernandez is the man to follow. With Lucas Perez gone to Deportivo La Coruna, Fernandez is the team’s top scorer with two goals. He’ll lead the attack alongside Anthony Lozano, while Alvaro Negredo will be waiting on the bench. Don’t underestimate that trio.

Adding more drama, these two starred in two very close matches last season. First, Sevilla managed to win 1-0 in Cadiz thanks to Lucas Ocampos, who scored in the second half. Later, they drew 1-1 at Sanchez-Pizjuan. En-Nesyri scored the opener only seven minutes into the game, while Lucas Perez scored the equalizer in the second half.
Cadiz has never defeated Sevilla on the road, but three of its last five meetings at Sanchez-Pizjuan finished with a draw. I think it’s safe to say that you can expect another close contest.
