On Sunday, we’ll have an interesting matchup between two teams that had quite different endings to their 2021-22 La Liga campaign. On one hand, we have Cadiz, who survived the drop, despite their terrible home form. From a 12th-place finish in their first season back to 17th last year, they are among the favorites for the drop this time season.
If we take a look at the Cadiz squad, there is a lack of stand-out talent, but there is one name most people will recognize: Alvaro Negredo. The Spanish striker will turn 36 later in August and will not play all 38 games, but his goals could be the difference between staying up or going down for Cadiz. Overall, their squad looks short of quality players, but there is still time left before the transfer window closes to address some of those issues.
On the other hand, La Real, under the management of Imanol Aguacil, finished in the top six last season. They play on the front foot and press well. If there is one criticism, it is that they tend to start seasons fast and drift off later. That has certainly been the case over the past two campaigns. In the end, they should be in and around the top six positions, though, as they were last year.
Alguacil has perhaps been one of the most underrated managers in European football since he took charge of La Real at the back end of 2018. He steadied the team in his first season in charge, helping them finish ninth, and followed that up with seventh-, fifth- and sixth-place finishes in the past three seasons. The only danger is that he’s set the bar so high, there could be some discontent if they don’t challenge for Europe once again.
