Cadiz will host relegation-battling Huesca at the Estadio Ramón de Carranza in La Liga on Saturday.

The promoted side are set to stay on for another year in the Spanish top-flight following an encouraging campaign on their return after 14 years.

With 40 points in the bag from 34 games, the Yellow Submarine look safe in 12th position. However, they will be aiming for a strong finish in an attempt to ambush the league's top-10 standings.

Huesca, also promoted from the Segunda Division last summer, are third from bottom and face relegation. A shock victory against Real Sociedad last weekend gave them a lifeline.

An 87th-minute own goal from Aritz Elustondo halted their run of three consecutive defeats and saw the Oscenses climb above Elche in the league table.


Cadiz vs Huesca Head-To-Head

There have been only nine previous clashes between the sides, with Cadiz winning thrice and Huesca beating them only twice.

In the first leg of their clash this season, the Yellow Submarine eked out a 2-0 victory in Huesca.

Cadiz vs Huesca Prediction

Cadiz have been erratic this season as they showed up in some big games only to drop points against lower-ranked sides.

Huesca will be confident of their chances and will go all out in their battle for survival. We expect this match to end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Cadiz 1-1 Huesca
