class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The side from the south of Spain made things extremely difficult for the Catalans last season and they are likely to do so once more this week
Barcelona travel to the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla on Thursday evening to face Cadiz in La Liga with the pressure mounting on Ronald Koeman.
The Blaugrana coach saw his team salvage a point in stoppage time at home to Granada on Monday evening to draw 1-1 but there are plenty of suggestions that the Dutchman is on borrowed time at Camp Nou.
Another failure to win this week would surely see the dissenting voices against the manager grow in number and volume.
Cadiz vs Barcelona latest odds
Last season saw Cadiz pick up four points against Barcelona, beating them 2-1 at home and claiming a 1-1 draw in Catalunya.
Alvaro Cervera’s side come into this week’s clash off the back of their first win of the season last Friday at Celta Vigo and bet365 offer Cadiz at 5/1 (6.00).
Barcelona can be backed at 1/2 (1.50) with the draw offered at 10/3 (4.33).

Cadiz vs Barcelona team news
The hosts welcome back centre-back Juan Cala from suspension, although Jon Garrido and Jose Mari remain unavailable through injury.
Barca have numerous injury concerns, with four attacking players still missing in Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Aguero, while Pedri and Jordi Alba are both injured as well.
Alejandro Bale replaced Alba on Monday night but the teenager has picked up a knock and could be a doubt for Thursday.
Cadiz vs Barcelona preview
The side from the south of Spain won this fixture last term with 18 per cent possession and Cadiz are by some distance the Liga side who spend the least amount of time with the ball.
Alvaro Cervera’s side are ultra-defensive, highly physical and extremely difficult to break down and with Barca missing numerous attacking options the hosts will be relatively confident of keeping the Catalans at bay.
Barca struggled badly on Monday to break down a resolute Granada team, resorting to pumping balls into the box and playing Gerard Pique as a centre-forward.
A similarly frustrating night could be on the cards for Koeman’s men against one of La Liga’s most awkward opponents.
Cadiz vs Barcelona tips & predictions
Under 2.5 goals in the game is priced at 6/5 (2.20) while backing Barca to score under 1.5 goals at 11/8 (2.38) looks an excellent selection, one which paid out in both meetings last term.
