The home side will be without four key players due to injury, including striker Maxi Gomez and defender Luis Hernandez. Midfielder Alex Fernandez is expected to start in place of the injured Romingue Kouame. Coach Sergio Gonzalez is likely to stick with the winning team that beat Granada last time out, with Chris Ramos partnering Juanmi upfront.

Barcelona Team News

Barca have some good news on the injury front, with Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, and Andreas Christensen all returning from injury against PSG. However, manager Xavi faces a selection headache as Christensen and Sergi Roberto are suspended for the second leg against PSG next week. Both are likely to start here though, along with Inigo Martinez, Joao Cancelo, and Robert Lewandowski who are all suspended for this match.

Xavi might rotate his squad with one eye on the crucial Champions League return leg. This could see Hector Bellerin starting at right-back, with Joao Felix and Ferran Torres potentially joining Fermin Lopez in attack. Pedri is likely to be used as a substitute to keep him fresh for the PSG game.

Predicted Lineups

Cadiz: Ledesma; Carcelen, Chust, Fali, J Hernandez; Navarro, Alcaraz, Alex, Sobrino; Ramos, Juanmi

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Fort; Fermin, Roberto, De Jong; Raphinha, F Torres, Felix
