Athletic Club and Cádiz face at San Mamés Barria, in a match for the 4 th round of the Liga. There is no record of official confrontations between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last head ‑ to ‑ head was played on 12‑03‑2006 and ended with the final score: Athletic Bilbao (1‑0) Cadiz. The home advantage may play an important role in this match, since Cádiz presents significant differences between home and away results.
The home team is currently in 14th place, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they lost away to Granada by (2‑0). In the last match, they have won an away match against Eibar by (1‑2). This is a team that maintains its performance when playing outside its stadium, since in the last 30 games it registers 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses as a visitor; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. Athletic Club have won 4, drawn 2 and lost 4 of their last 10 home matches for all competitions. The team has not been very strong defensively, as they have always conceded goals in the last 10 games.
The team led by Gaizka Garitano comes motivated for this round after an away win, by 1-2, in the trip to the Eibar field: Unai López scored twice in the match, allowing his team to win the three points. One of the great qualities of the home team is aerial duels, and their players are exemplary in this chapter. Atlético de Bilbao should play in a 4-3-3 tactical system, the man whose mission is to increase the levels of creativity of his team is the Spanish Iñaki Williams. Coach Gaizka Garitano should have all the players fit for this match.
After 1 win and 2 losses, the visiting team is in 15th position,
having won 3 points. In the last match, they have lost at home against
Sevilla by (1‑3), after in the previous match they have won (0‑2) an
away match against Huesca. This is a team that, curiously, has been
stronger away than at home, as in the last 30 games they have registered
6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 4 wins, 5 draws and 6
losses at their stadium. In the last 10 away matches Cádiz has won 4,
drawn 3 and lost 3. Defensive solidity has not been their strong point,
as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 games.
Cádiz comes unmotivated for this match after a 1-3 home defeat against Sevilla. The greatest quality of the visiting team lies in its ability to react to a situation of disadvantage. Cadiz has a habit of playing in a 4-3-3 tactical system, where the three most advanced men will be Pombo, Negredo and Salvi Sánchez. Spaniard Álex Fernández is the player responsible for defining and directing his team's offensive moment. The visiting coach must have all players at his disposal.
