Cadiz vs Barcelona build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Under normal circumstances, Cadiz wouldn’t have a prayer heading into this match with Barcelona. However, these are strange times, indeed. Los Piratas took four points from Ronald Koeman’s men last season, including a 2-1 win on home soil. Couple that with their 2-1 win away at Celta Vigo on Friday and it’s easy to see why Cadiz might be confident of a result here.
And that’s before talking about the multitude of problems plaguing Barcelona. After a tumultuous summer transfer window, the Blaugrana have made a poor start to the new campaign, taking eight points from their opening four games and losing 3-0 to Bayern in the Champions League. Most recently, Barca had to wait until the 90th minute to salvage a draw at home to Granada, who are in the bottom three without a win so far this term.
- Cadiz (vs Celta Vigo): Ledesma; Carcelen, Haroyan, Chust, Espino; Fali; Salvi, Bastida Moya, Alarcon, Lozano; Sobrino.
- Barcelona (vs Athletic Bilbao): Ter Stegen; Dest, Garcia, Araujo, Balde; Roberto, Busquets, De Jong; Demir, Depay, Coutinho.
Jon Ander Garrido is still recovering from surgery while Cadiz are also without Jose Mari due to a quad injury. Barcelona, meanwhile, head into this game with a long list of absentees with Sergio Aguero, Ousmane Dembele, Pedri, Jordi Alba, Martin Braithwaite and Ansu Fati all sidelined.

Barcelona respond to Ronaldo Koeman’s unexpected statement
Reporters turning up to Koeman’s pre-match press conference ahead of this tie were probably expecting the usual: team news, tactics and tropes. Nothing out of the ordinary. But there’s nothing ordinary about Barcelona at the moment. Instead, the Dutchman read out a pre-written statement asking for time and patience as the club seek to rebuild the squad, before promptly leaving the conference.
“Hello everyone, the club is with me as the coach in a situation of rebuilding,” said Koeman. “The financial situation of the club is connected to the sporting activities and vice versa. This means that we as a team have to rebuild the football team without being able to make any big financial investments, this needs time.
“The young talent today could end up being the next big world stars in just a few years. In order to reconstruct this team means that young players get opportunities, like Xavi and Iniesta had in their day, but we must ask for patience.
“What’s more, being in a high ranking in the league would be a success. This is a great footballing school for these talents. In the Champions League, we can’t hope for miracles. The defeat to Bayern last week has to be focused from that perspective.
“The process that we are in right now, the staff with the team, deserves unconditional support, in word and in actions.
“I know the press recognise this process. It’s not the first time in FC Barcelona’s history that this has happened. We count on your support in this difficult time. The staff and the players are very happy with the great support from the fans like we had against Granada. Visca el Barca.”

As it turns out, Barca president, Joan Laporta, and the club’s leadership group were blind sighted by Koeman’s statement. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Laporta revealed he only found out about the manager’s statement “at the last minute”, though he defended Koeman’s right to speak as he wishes in press conferences.
“We found out at the last minute that he wanted to make a statement and, well, he’s obliged to attend press conferences and he’s free to respond or speak as he wishes,” Laporta replied when asked about Koeman’s statement.
“We respect the coach’s decision, but we and the captains found out a bit before.”
When asked about the club’s recent poor results, Laporta responded: “Well, we’re in a difficult moment and I think that we should have a lot of serenity and wait for a good result tomorrow against Cadiz, because that’s what interests us, situations which you overcome with results.
“We will move forward and keep fighting. We’ll get the ball on the ground, what’s important is that tomorrow we play well.”
