Can Cádiz climb out of the relegation zone?
El Submarino Amarillo were swatted aside by Barcelona at Camp Nou on Sunday night which, coupled with other results, saw Cádiz end the weekend 18th.
Sergio’s side have now lost three successive away games, but have been significantly better at home.
In fact, Cádiz have won their last two outings at Nuevo Mirandilla, beating both Mallorca and Girona 2-0, with their last home defeat coming at the hands of Barça in early-September.
So, will the Yellow Submarine extend their unbeaten home streak to nine games?
Since Cádiz were last beaten at home, they’ve been smashed 5-1 at Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas, in a game that actually saw referee Alejandro Muñiz brandish three red cards.
This, alongside the fact they start the weekend in sixth place, means Rayo Vallecano will make the 374 mile journey south full of confidence.
Los Franjirrojos were held to a 1-1 draw by Sevilla last Sunday, with Florian Lejeune’s equaliser ensuring they didn’t end up empty-handed.
Nevertheless, Andoni Iraola’s team are now unbeaten in four, only losing twice since 8 October, meaning Rayo are very much in the European conversation.
This one at Estadio Ramón de Carranza is tough to call.
