Cadiz will welcome Granada to the Estadio Ramon de Carranza for an Andalusian derby in La Liga.
The hosts have been impressive since their return to the top-flight and picked up an impressive 1-0 victory against Athletic Bilbao at the imposing San Mames last Sunday.
Granada were on the receiving end of a 6-1 whitewash by Atletico Madrid in the league last weekend but held their heads high to defeat Malmo 3-1 in Sweden to secure qualification to the group stage of the Europa League.
Cadiz currently sit eighth on the table, level on six points apiece with their next opponents, although the newcomers have played one game more.

Cadiz vs Granada Prediction
The fact that this is a derby means that it will be difficult to predict, as increased passion and bragging rights at stake could see both sides give their all in pursuit of a victory.
Cadiz will come into the fixture fresher than their rivals, having been afforded seven extra days of rest, while Granada completed a trip to Scandinavia to take on Malmo.
Fatigue could be a factor for the visitors, and their recent record against Cadiz suggests that we might witness a draw with goals at both ends.
