Getafe welcome Cadiz to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez as the two face off in a round 30 La Liga encounter on Saturday.

The hosts are 15th in the table, six points clear of Huesca in the relegation zone. Cadiz are two points ahead of Getafe, occupying 13th place in the table.

Getafe come into this game on the back of three draws, playing out stalemates against Atletico Madrid and Elche prior to the international break.

The Azulones faced a trip to Osasuna once club football resumed, and despite dominating the game, walked away with a goalless draw.

Cadiz's only victory in March came against Eibar at home by a 1-0 scoreline. The Andalusian side played out a 1-1 draw away to Deportivo Alaves and lost 1-2 away to Villarreal ahead of the international break.

Cadiz resumed their winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Valencia at home. However, the game was marred by alleged racial abuse by Juan Cala against Mouctar Diakhaby.

Los Che walked off with the scores tied, only to resume playing later on without Diakhaby.

Alvaro Cervera has confirmed that Juan Cala has been affected by the racism allegations. The coach will take a late call on whether to play the centre-back. If he does not play, Marcos Mauro will be ready to step in.

Ruben Sobrino returns after being ineligible to play against Valencia. Meanwhile, fellow forwards Ivan Saponjic and Choco Lozano are back fit but likely to feature only from the bench.

Midfielder Alex Fernandez has been ruled out through injury.

Injured: Alex Fernandez

Doubtful: Juan Cala

Suspended: None


Getafe vs Cadiz Predicted XI

Getafe Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): David Soria (GK); Juan Iglesias, Djene Dakonam, Xabi Etxeita, Mathias Olivera; Nemanja Maksimovic, Mauro Arambarri; Allan Nyom, Carles Alena, Marc Cucurella; Jaime Mata

Cadiz Predicted XI (4-4-2): Jeremias Ledesma (GK); Iza Carcelen, Fali, Marcos Mauro, Alfonso Espino; Salvi Sanchez, Jens Jonsson, Jose Mari, Alberto Perea; Ruben Sobrino, Alvaro Negredo


Getafe vs Cadiz Prediction

The negative press surrounding Juan Cala will no doubt distract Cadiz, and Getafe at home are a tough prospect at the best of times. However, the Azulones have found it difficult to score recently and will need Jaime Mata to be at his best.

We expect a closely-fought game, with Getafe earning a narrow victory.

Prediction: Getafe 1-0 Cadiz
