Hello and welcome along to this Cadiz vs Barcelona live blog, where we’ll be covering all the updates from this Thursday night’s LaLiga Santander fixture at the Camp Nou.
Barcelona drew with Granada last time out thanks to a late Ronald Araujo equaliser and have only won one of their last four matches in all competitions. An internal war has broken out between coach Ronald Koeman and president Joan Laporta, so nothing more than a win will be needed to quell the storm at Barcelona, at least temporarily.

Cadiz vs Barcelona probable line-ups
Given the number of injuries Koeman has with Barcelona, there is some good news in that Coutinho will retain his place in the starting line up. Dest will likely play at left-back after injuries to Jordi Alba and Balde.
Probable Cadiz XI: Ledesma, Iza, Haroyan, Víctor Chust, Espino; Fali, Alarcón; Alex Fernandez, Salvi, Choco Lozano, Negredo.
Probable Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Pique, Araujo, Dest; Busquest, De Jong, Sergi Roberto, Demir; Coutinho, Memphis Depay.
Barcelona missing players
Ronald Koeman has called up Nico Gonzalez for Barcelona’s match away at Cadiz on Thursday in place of the injured Alejandro Balde in what is the only change from the squad that was named for the club’s 1-1 draw against Granada last Monday. The Dutch coach therefore remains without the six injured players – Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Pedri, Martin Braithwaite, Jordi Alba and Sergio Aguero – and now Balde has joined this list.
