The 2021-22 edition of La Liga is back in action with another set of matches this week as Celta Vigo take on Cadiz on Friday. Both teams have been inconsistent so far and will have to step up in this match.
Cadiz are currently in 16th place in the La Liga standings and are missing another match this season. The away team suffered a 2-0 defeat against Real Sociedad last week and must prove a point in this match.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, are in 18th place in the league table and have struggled this season. The Galician giants were beaten by Real Madrid in their previous match and cannot afford a similar debacle this weekend.
Celta Vigo vs Cadiz Head-to-Head
Celta Vigo have a good record against Cadiz and have won six out of 12 matches played between the two teams. Cadiz have managed four wins against Celta Vigo and should intensify this week.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in April this year and ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Both teams wasted chances on the day and need to be more clinical this week.
