Match Overview:

Comparing the two teams’ early forms, we can see the two extremities. Except for a draw at the very start of the campaign, where their dominance wasn’t a matter of question, just the clinicality lacked from the finishing, the Catalans are on an exceptional run, winning 3/3 of their last games with an impressive, +10 goal difference (which is, by the way, the best in the league) With that, they have already climbed up to 2nd place, and only Real Madrid is ahead with a 100% winning ratio.

On the other side, Cádiz had a disastrous start of the season, as they lost all of their 4 games so far, and are at the bottom of the table with 0 points. In plus, Los Piratas are the only team without scoring a single goal so far, whereas with 10 conceded, they have the worst goal difference in the league.

However, the name of Cádiz carries a bad omen for the Blaugrana as they were unable to win against them since the Amarillos got promoted to La Liga in 2020. 2 draws and 2 losses, this is the record from the last 4 games of the two, and Barcelona will surely look to break this negative series and strengthen their position in the fight with Real Madrid on the top of the table with all the 3 points taken.

Talking about the possible lineup, numerous players compete for the starting spots, given how deep is the squad of the Garnet and Blue. Even the players like Sergi Roberto, Kessié, and Ferrán Torres managed to impress against Plžen, while the others like Bellerín and Marcos Alonso had not even made their debut yet. Meanwhile, the star performers of the team, Lewandowski, Dembélé, and Pedri seem to have the least rest given, based on how crucial they are in Xavi’s plans.

Nevertheless, some rotations are to be expected as we are well in the extreme, 2-games-per-week meat grinder of the autumn season. Xavi should use his squad carefully & thoughtfully enough to find the perfect balance between energy and success.

So, the problem is set for Xavi, the task of smart squad management. Nevertheless, no matter how strained the calendar is or how rotated the squad is, ‘nomen est omen’, the old saying says. We are one of the best clubs in the world, and we will always look to win games and trophies, no matter in which state we are because we are Barca.
