Sevilla Looks to Avoid Trap
Despite only winning two of its last five games, Sevilla is still aiming for La Liga second place. More importantly, Los Rojiblancos want to secure their ticket to the UEFA Champions League as soon as possible.
The good news is that they depend only on themselves to do so, however, losing to Cadiz could complicate things in a big way. According to the soccer odds, Sevilla (-180) should win easily, but that’s what Barcelona thought a couple of weeks ago when Cadiz visited Camp Nou.
Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Spain La Liga odds for Sevilla vs Cadiz. We have plenty of soccer predictions for you to consider.
Sevilla Back on Track
Losing 3-2 to Real Madrid two weeks ago killed Sevilla’s title hopes, however, the team’s main objective has always been to qualify for the UCL.
Last week, Los Rojiblancos returned to the winning column thanks to a 3-2 victory over Levante. Hopefully, you followed our betting online advice. Jesus Corona was the Man of the Match after scoring the first two goals. Jules Kounde sealed the deal with the third one at 82 minutes.
That victory allowed them to remain in third place with 63 points, six more than Real Betis. Los Verdiblancos are sitting in fifth place and only the top four qualify for the UCL.
Sevilla has been a more reliable soccer pick when playing at home, to the point… their only loss was to Real Madrid. Prior to that, they owned an 11-4-0 record. If that’s not enough, how about being the best defensive team in the league? Correct, Los Rojiblancos have allowed only 27 goals in 33 games. Real Madrid comes next with 29.
Curiously enough, no Sevilla player has scored more than nine goals. Precisely, Rafa Mir is the team’s top scorer with nine goals. I guess they truly believe soccer should always be a team effort.
Cadiz Trying to Avoid Relegation
That’s what makes Cadiz a tempting online gambling underdog, the urgency to win. Otherwise, Los Piratas could fall back into the relegation zone. Right now, they sit in seventeenth place thanks to a one-point advantage over Granada.
Here’s another reason. They recently pulled off a huge upset under similar circumstances. Los Piratas, who were offering a +1700 price, defeated Barcelona 1-0 at Camp Nou. Prior to that, they also beat Villarreal, one of the UCL semifinalists, with the same score.
Most recently, Cadiz lost to Athletic Bilbao, but not without putting up a good fight. The game finished 3-2. Athletic scored all three goals in the first half, while Cadiz did the same in the second one. Lucas Perez and Ruben Sobrino were the scorers.
Their road numbers aren’t the best, 4-5-7, but they’ve won two more games than at home. Plus, they finished with a clean sheet in three of their last five road games.
Last but not least, they’re offering a +590 price. That’s right, a little more respect for them.

Sevilla vs Cadiz Prediction
Sevilla is the better team, no doubt about it. Plus, Los Rojiblancos finished with a clean sheet in four of their last five meetings with Cadiz. You can expect that trend to continue considering the visitors average 0.8 goals per game and they’ll be facing the best defensive unit in the league.
This time, the total won’t go over, however, look for Sevilla to dominate from the start, enough to score in both halves.
Score Prediction: Sevilla 2, Cadiz 0
