Granada will aim to build on their midweek win over Barcelona when they take on Cadiz at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes on Sunday.

The visitors head into this game on the back of a three-game winless streak and will look to end this poor run

Granada grabbed the shock result of the week when they came from one goal down to steal a 2-1 win against La Liga giants Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

In a game where the hosts dominated, Darwin Machis canceled out Lionel Messi’s 23rd-minute opener, before Jorge Molina scored late to complete the comeback.

The result saw Granada move past Celia Viga into eighth place, four points behind the Europa League playoff spot.

Meanwhile, after a solid start to the season, Cadiz have run out of steam in recent months.

They have managed just nine La Liga wins so far, four of which came in the first eight games of the season.

Alvaro Cervera's men extended their winless run to three games last Saturday as they came from behind to force a 1-1 draw against Real Valladolid.

With 37 points from 33 outings, Cadiz are currently 13th in the league table.

Granada vs Cadiz Head-To-Head

The spoils have been shared in their last three meetings, with the most recent ending in a 1-1 draw back in October.
