Big game for Deportivo at the Riazor. Krohn-Dehli is the only player out. The rival ha problems at the centre of the defence.

With only five games remaining on the schedule, and with only one point separating Cádiz CF and Deportivo at the standings, the visit of the Andalusians to the Riazor tuns to be a final for both teams (Sunday, 16h00 CET).

The good news for Deportivo is that Michael Krohn-Dehli is the only player that will miss the game. The Danish midfielder remains training apart due to an Achilles injury and his returning date is now uncertain as his reincorporation to the group has been delayed. It’s even possible that he will no longer play with the team during this season.

Centre-back Michele Somma returns from suspension and the other players with physical problems are expected to be fit. Right-back David Simón joined the group on this week after skipping the last three games due to a muscle problem.

Then the cases of centre-back Domingos Duarte and striker Borja Valle. Both skipped the training session on Friday due to knocks, but the club informed that their absence was only for precautionary reasons and that both men should be available for the game.

Cádiz CF arrive to the meeting living inside the promotion zone, but with a tough calendar in which they face three direct rivals plus Sporting Gijón within the last five matchdays, and coach Álvaro Cervera is having defensive problems as he has been facing the last games with only  two centre-backs (Sergio Sánchez and Kecojević)

Marcos Mauro has been out for a couple of weeks due to muscle problems and he joined the group on Wednesday, but shouldn’t be fit to be a starter, while Aleksandar Pantić is out since March due to a knee injury. The club was even trying to make a signing to replace Pantić, Gimnástic’s Jarque Fali was announced on Friday in a loan deal,he could be joining the trainings on Saturday and could be available for the game.

Right-back David Carmona will also miss the game against Depor as he is dragging a muscle injury (stress fracture). Meanwhile, winger Salvador Sánchez Ponce 'Salvi' is available after surpassing a knock, though coach Cervera confirmed to reporters that he isn’t ready to be a starter.
