Celta Vigo and Cadiz have both struggled in La Liga this season and the pair face each other on Monday in what could be a crucial clash in the battle against the drop.

The pair have only won three of their combined 28 matches in the league and will be hoping to pick up a vital three points at the wrong end of the table.

  • Celta Vigo to win to nil vs Cadiz @ 7/5

Celta Vigo and Cadiz finished just a point apart in the bottom half of the La Liga table last season, avoiding relegation by a fine margin.

The pair look set for another long fight against the drop against a number of strugglers at the foot of the Spanish top flight at this stage.

Winning games has been a major issue for Celta Vigo this term. They beat bottom side Almeria 3-2 in September but have yet to record a league victory since then.

The hosts have put in some solid performances recently, however, beating Turegano 4-0 in the Copa Del Rey before picking up draws against Sevilla and Valencia.

Discipline has been something of an issue, as they have had a man sent off in two of their last five league games.

Cadiz’s season started in rock-solid fashion, taking seven points from the first four games thanks to wins over Alaves and Villarreal.

However in the 10 games since then, Sergio Gonzalez’s men have picked up just four points and have lost five of their last seven matches in La Liga.

No team in the top flight has scored fewer goals than their 11 and their attacking difficulties could be the difference between them staying up or not this term.

Cadiz have lost four of their last six La Liga games without scoring and a repeat of that looks likely in this matchup.

Celta Vigo have improved in recent weeks and home advantage could be crucial in this one.

The home team won each of this pair’s meetings last season, keeping a clean sheet in the process.

Rafael Benitez’s Celta Vigo side have shown enough recently to indicate that they can come out on top of this clash.

However with both teams struggling going forward, it would be foolish to expect a high-scoring affair.

Cadiz’s struggles in front of goal look likely to continue, and Celta are fancied to pick up just their second win of the season in this one.

The Sky Blues can also keep a clean sheet and record a win to nil over their relegation rivals.
