What to expect in Valencia vs Cádiz’s 2022 upcoming match?
La Liga week 30 preview: The Mestalla will be the venue of the third meeting of Valencia and Cádiz this season, to be held on April 4, just after the international break.
With their first league matchup ending in a goalless draw, the hosts are looking to get the upper hand against the struggling visitors from Andalusia, having eliminated them in the quarterfinal of the Copa del Rey two months ago.
Between the two clubs on the rise, it is Valencia that has made the biggest lead heading into this fixture. They are unbeatable in the last four league matches to move up to ninth, just a point behind Athletic Bilbao, whom they defeated en route to their second Copa final in four seasons.
Meanwhile, Cádiz picked up eight points in the last five league bouts, including a stunning home win over Villarreal in a “Yellow Submarine” derby on March 30. They are a point above Mallorca on the table.
This will be the 26th time the two sides have played at La Liga, with Valencia winning half of those meetings. Cádiz recently snapped Valencia’s 12-match unbeaten run on them last season.

An on-form Valencia is favored to win. However, the international break might be a dampener to the momentum of Los Che. Pepe Bordalás must make his selection on point, given the fact that the Copa del Rey final is just more than two weeks away.
