Cádiz have been conceding pretty frequently recently, but they have also found ways to score goals themselves.

Team News: Cádiz
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Cádiz boss Álvaro Cervera to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Jon Ander Garrido (Knee Injury) misses out.
Team News: Barcelona
Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has not got a full squad to pick from. Ansu Fati (Fitness), Álex Balde (Lumbago), Pedri (Muscle Injury), Jordi Alba (Muscle Injury), Sergio Agüero (Calf Problems), Ousmane Dembélé (Hamstring Injury), Moussa Wagué (Patella rupture) and Martin Braithwaite (Knee Injury) are not able to play. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Moussa Wagué and Álex Collado.
We’re inclined to think that Cádiz should get enough chances to put one past this Barcelona team, however a single goal is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our selection here is for a close game with a 1-2 win for Barcelona at full-time. It should be a decent one.
