Cadiz are set to host Sevilla tomorrow at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza in their next La Liga fixture.
Cadiz come into this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Huesca last Sunday at the Estadio El Alcoraz. Goals from former Manchester City striker and Spain international Alvaro Negredo and midfielder Jorge Pombo sealed the deal for Alvaro Cervera's side.
This is Sevilla's first league game of the season. They lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Super Cup final yesterday, courtesy of goals from German midfielder Leon Goretzka and Spain international Javi Martinez. A Lucas Ocampos penalty proved to be scant consolation for Julen Lopetegui's side.

Cadiz vs Sevilla Prediction
In Alvaro Negredo, Cadiz have a highly-experienced striker who made his name at Sevilla before playing for the likes of Manchester City and Valencia. He will be expected to lead the line, and will have to be at his very best.
Sevilla, on the other hand, will have to recover quickly from their Super Cup disappointment. Ivan Rakitic's return makes up for the departure of Ever Banega, while it remains to be seen how Marcos Acuna will be able to replace Sergio Reguilon, who has gone to Tottenham Hotspur, at left-back.
Sevilla have a talented squad and a good coach, and will be the favourites for this game.
Prediction: Cadiz 0-2 Sevilla
