Since 2006 for the first time, Cadiz is back in La Liga after Real Oviedo beat Real Zaragoza 4-2 on Sunday.
As Cadiz lost to Fuenlabrada 1-0 at home, Alvaro Cervera’s team lost the opportunity to win promotion on Saturday. Nevertheless, the defeat of Zaragoza the next day placed Cadiz in the automatic positions of the second tier with a seven-point gap, with two matches remaining.
To win the title Cadiz is is need of only one point due to their strong performance in head-to-head matches versus Huesca, who is ranked second.
The success of the club this campaign was based on the 12 midfield goals of Alex Fernandez and the uncompromising defensive work of Alfonso Espino and Isaac Carcelen.
Manolo Vizcaino, team president, announced on Sunday that for their return to La Liga, veteran striker Alvaro Negredo will join Cadiz.
Cadiz completes their league season with matches versus Albacete and Girona.
