Match Preview and Predictions

  • Athletic Bilbao have started the season with a win and a defeat, with all three conceded goals during that time arriving between HT and the 55th minute. They were prone to sluggish second halves last term too, conceding 65.79% of their La Liga (LL) goals after HT (25), and shipping 13 between minutes 61 and 75 – the division’s second-most in this time period.
  • The hosts have won only six of their past 16 LL contests here (D4, L6), with four of those victories coming ‘to nil’, but they also failed to score in 83.33% of the losses. Last season, they were the joint-second lowest second-half LL home scorers (nine goals), so a strong start is seemingly required.
  • Cádiz have one win and two defeats in LL action so far, with two of those encounters witnessing a goal in the tenth minute. Notably, three of their five goals conceded this season arrived beyond the 75th minute, but they’ve also scored a goal in each half in five of their previous six league victories.
  • A 2-0 victory at Huesca means Álvaro Cervera’s side are unbeaten in seven of their past nine away games (W4, D3, L2), albeit all bar one were in the second tier. Three of the wins came in the only three matches during that run in which they netted 2+ goals, whilst last season they opened their league campaign winning five of their first six away.
  • Players to watch: Unai López scored twice last time out, having only netted once in 34 prior LL club appearances since the start of 2018/19. Meanwhile, Álex was Cadiz’s top scorer last season – eight of his 13 goals came from the penalty spot.
  • Hot stat: Bilbao’s first LL home match in five of the last seven seasons produced under 2.5 goals (W4, D1, L2), whilst Cadiz’s away league games last term averaged 1.95 goals.
