Two newly promoted teams clash on the second weekend of the season in LaLiga and already this feels like a really big football match. Huesca and Cadiz are both widely expected to be involved in the relegation battle and a win for either here would be a huge boost to morale moving forward as both teams aim to prove they belong at this level.

Both sides have been active in the transfer market but while Cadiz have largely focused on getting players who were on loan at the club last term back, Huesca have added more new faces. The latest is Dimitris Siovas who will bring top flight experience and some genuine defensive quality having impressed for Leganes over the last 3 seasons in LaLiga. The Aragonese side picked up an excellent point at Villarreal in their opening game with another new signing Pablo Maffeo finishing off a fine team move.

It was a less positive opening weekend for Cadiz on their long-awaited return to the top flight. A 2-0 loss against Osasuna was not the start Álvaro Cervera was hoping for, although the scoreline did flatter the visitors a touch. Marquee signing Alvaro Negredo led the line for the Andalusians in that game but you do have to wonder where the goals are going to come from this season for Cadiz with 35 year old Negredo not the force of old.

In terms of team selection, both coaches will be hoping to build some continuity following relatively active transfer windows. That should mean Siovas will have to wait to make his Huesca debut with no major changes expected from either side although Alberto Perea may return on the left flank for Cadiz, having served a suspension last weekend.

Huesca vs Cadiz Predictions


Score Prediction: 2-0 Huesca

Overall, Huesca look marginally the stronger of these two teams having added a bit more quality this summer and playing a fellow newly promoted team first up at home may suit them given their dominant record at El Alcoraz last term in the Segunda. Huesca won 71% of their home league games last term, a big reason why they pipped Cadiz to the title, and significantly they were just as strong after the restart behind closed doors. They look capable of picking up the win here.
