Good afternoon from Cadiz
Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of the LaLiga clash between Cadiz and Barcelona at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla.
Barca manager Xavi will be without Sergi Roberto, who is sidelined with a muscular injury he sustained against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League last week.
However, the Spanish tactician dismissed fears regarding Roberto’s fitness as he insisted that his injury is not serious.
The Blaugrana may be keeping one eye open on their upcoming Champions League clash with Bayern Munich, whom they are facing on Tuesday at the Allianz Arena.
Therefore, Xavi may rest a few of his big names, such as Bayern legend Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele.
Former Arsenal ace Hector Bellerin and ex-Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso were not involved against Plzen due to their late arrivals, but both have been named in Barcelona’s squad today.
Cadiz boss Sergio Gonzalez, on the other hand, will again be without Jon Ander Garrido as he is still nursing a knee injury.
Ruben Alcaraz remains a doubt but other than that the hosts seem to be in good shape for this big match.
Sergio is expected to make some changes today and could bring in former Arsenal ace Lucas Perez, Ruben Sobrino and Alex Fernandez
