Team News: Cádiz
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Cádiz manager Álvaro Cervera to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Jon Ander Garrido (Knee Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Real Sociedad
From a largely available group of players, there is only the lone fitness worry for the Real Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil to contend with. Carlos Fernández (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the view that Cádiz will have a tough ask to get anything against this Real Sociedad lineup who we reckon will gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore anticipating a highly competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Real Sociedad when the full-time whistle blows.
