Cadiz travel to Catalonia for the next match in Copa del Rey as they face Girona at the Estadi Montilivi, hoping to advance into the last-16 for the first time since 2018.

This is also the first time since 2006 that the Yellow Submarine are participating in the competition as a La Liga side.

Having gained promotion back to the top-flight after 14 years, the Andalusian outfit have been fairly impressive on their return, sitting ninth in the table after 18 games.

Some of the highlights of their season include a pair of improbable victories against Spain's 'big two', Real Madrid and Barcelona, making Cadiz the first promoted side to accomplish such a feat during the first half of a season.

They'll be confident after seeing Girona's struggles this season in the Segunda Division, as the Blanquivermells are languishing eighth in the standings with just eight wins from 21 games.

The sides have clashed only six times before, with Girona narrowly edging ahead of Cadiz with three wins to the latter's two.

Their last meeting came in the second division of Spanish football in July last year which the Catalan side won 2-1 at home.

This is a tough one to call as Girona are not easy to beat at home, however, the loss of Stuani to injury will play a big role here. Cadiz haven't conceded in both cups games so far and have some quality options in the attack which should see them through.

Prediction: Girona 1-2 Cadiz
