Cadiz will open the action in La Liga this weekend, as they look to record a second victory in three league fixtures. They will still be desperately looking for points, as they bid to move out of the bottom three places in the standings. Girona is the visitors on Friday, as they look for a second straight win.
La Liga Preview
The spotlight will be on the relegation battle in La Liga on Friday evening, as Cadiz host Girona. The hosts will be looking to record a second victory in three league games, which could lift them out of the relegation places, and up to 15th in the standings. Their recent form has been pretty decent, as they have picked up two wins from their last five.
Meanwhile, they have lost just twice over that period. However, any hopes of moving out of the bottom three were ended in their previous game, as they were soundly beaten on the road by Athletic Bilbao. Cadiz netted through Gonzalo Escalante in that fixture, but still went on to lose 4-1.
Girona will be the visitors on Friday evening, as the look to move closer to the top half of the standings. The Spanish side has won twice in their previous four games, and have lost the same number of fixtures in that period. They could yet get dragged into the relegation scrap, as they are currently just five clear of the bottom three.
Girona ended a two-game losing run in their previous fixture, as they edged to a 1-0 success against out-of-form Valencia. The only goal in the game was scored with just under half an hour remaining, as Borja Garcia netted the winner for the hosts. However, it looks set to be a more difficult challenge for them on the road on Friday.
Cadiz vs Girona Head to Head
This will only be the second meeting between the sides in La Liga in ten years. The previous meeting between the sides in the competition was played in October, as the sides shared the points with a 1-1 draw. However, Girona has won two of the previous three in all competitions.
