In a shocking match on Saturday, Cadiz defeated Barcelona 2-1. This defeat for Barcelona means they have had the worst start in the league in 33 years.

Barcelona couldn’t afford another mistake, but what’s more was that Cadiz were ahead of them in the league table when the ball started rolling
,” Barcelona legend Lobo Carrasco wrote in Mundo Deportivo.
“Ronald Koeman’s first problem came when the home side had their first offensive action. A corner came in, Fali knocked it on before Alvaro scored at the back post. A lot of Blaugrana possession undone by one Cadista slap.
“Barcelona crashed against a Cadiz intelligent in its tactics because there was no individual imbalance from the Catalans. A lack of movement on the outside failed to stretch Iza and Espino, helped by Jairo and Perea. It was impossible to move inside.
“Cadiz didn’t need to be anything more than orderly, and was built with lines well-assembled to its hinge, the Dane Jens Jonsson. Barcelona suffered due to their lack of verticality and their inability to win back balls quickly.”
Barcelona will face Levante, Real Sociedad and Valencia in the upcoming La Liga matches. Things could get worse for Koeman if Barcelona do not acquire good results from the upcoming games.
