Barcelona hosts Cadiz on Monday in a La Liga match that offers a chance at critical points for both teams. Barca (17-9-4) is in second place in the La Liga table, and while chances of catching Real Madrid are slim, it needs to keep gaining points to at least stay in the top four.

Cadiz (5-13-13) is in 18th place but just four behind 15th-place Getafe. Barcelona is 11-4-0 in its past 15 league games, while Cadiz is on a solid 2-2-1 run in its last five.

Why you should back Barcelona
La Blaugrana has been able to dominate possession all season, and it should be no different Monday. Barcelona leads La Liga in possession at 64.9 percent, while Cadiz is clear at the bottom at 39.9. It held the ball for 69 percent of the last meeting, a 0-0 draw. Cadiz has taken just two points from 13 all-time meetings in Barcelona, with 1-1 draws in its first match there in 1978 and its most recent in February 2021. Barca is 10-2-2 at home this season, scoring 32 goals while conceding just 13.
Cadiz has allowed 43 goals in its 30 matches, so players like Memphis Depay, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres could cause major problems. Torres is healthy after returning from injury in late January and has four goals in 10 games, while Depay has a team-high 10 and Aubamaeyang has eight.
Why you should back Cadiz
Cadiz is eager to stay in the top flight, and it has looked strong in recent weeks. It comes off a 2-1 loss to Real Betis, but played fourth-place Atletico Madrid tough in a 2-1 loss last month. It also drew with Valencia and beat Villareal and Rayo Villecano since the beginning of March. It has allowed just 10 shots on goal over the past four games (34 total). It outshot Atletico 14-6, though it had just three on target, and put seven on net against Villecano.
Cadiz has several players who can contribute goals, with seven players posting at least two. Five different players have scored in the past five games, including Alvaro Negredo. His goal in the loss to Atletico was his team-high sixth, and Anthony Lozano has five. With a lack of power up front, Cadiz plays a physical game, ranking second in La Liga in tackles (577) and tackles won (367). It also has the third-most pressures, and Alfonso Espino plays a major role. He is tied for first in La Liga in tackles won (64), second in blocks (70) and fourth in pressures (590).
