The Andalucian derby returns to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday as Champions League hopefuls Sevilla host promoted side Cadiz in an enticing La Liga encounter.

Los Rojiblancos are currently fifth in the standings after a stop-start run in recent weeks, but they can surpass fourth-placed Villarreal with a win this weekend.

They've won four times from the last five games in all competitions, and the form is on their side. Meanwhile, the Yellow Submarine will be hoping to pick up another big scalp.

Back in the top-flight after 14 years, they've so far punched above their weight. Cadiz sit ninth in the standings with 24 points, seven clear of the relegation zone.

The Alvaro Cervera-led side have even caused two huge upsets, beating the 'big two' of Real Madrid and Barcelona. In doing so, they became the first promoted team to accomplish the feat in the first half of the season.


Sevilla vs Cadiz Head-To-Head

In eight derbies between the Andalucian rivals, Sevilla have come out on top five times. Cadiz have taken the spoils on just a single occasion with a 2-0 victory back in January 2006.

Earlier in the season, the Rojiblancos beat the side from the port city 3-1 on the road in La Liga action.
