Ten Hag has selected a mix of youth an experience for the winter training camp in Spain, with many members of the first-team squad away representing their countries at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Of those who travelled to Andalusia, David De Gea, Victor Lindelof, Scott McTominay, and Anthony Martial are among United's first-team regulars, while youngsters such as the impressive Alejandro Garnacho - who has made quite the impact for Ten Hag's side already - are also involved.
Other young Reds include FA Youth Cup-winning defenders Sam Murray and Rhys Bennett, along with Shola Shoretire, Charlie McNeill and Kobbie Mainoo, who have all been named on the bench for the senior side during the first part of the season.
Axel Tuanzebe and Jadon Sancho are both undergoing personal fitness programmes so have not travelled to Spain, but Brandon Williams has linked up with the squad after his lengthy absence.
For Cadiz, defender Jon Ander Garrido is unavailable due to a knock, but Sergio Gonzalez has a clean bill of health from his team otherwise.
UNITED’S RECORD IN SPAIN
To date, the Reds have played 30 times in Spain, winning six times, drawing 12 and losing 12.
This may not make for good reading for Ten Hag, but he will undoubtedly take some confidence from his side’s last performance in the country, with United emerging 1-0 winners against Real Sociedad at the beginning of November.
In fact, the Reds have won three times and drawn once in our last four trips to Spain.
United have never faced Cadiz in any competition, and it will be intriguing to see how the current La Liga strugglers fare against Ten Hag’s side in this friendly.
The two clubs currently operating at opposite ends of our respective tables, with Cadiz’s 19th-placed spot in La Liga being a far cry from United, who sit fifth in the Premier League.
The Reds also come into the winter break in good form, having won 2-1 against Fulham last time out and only losing once since the beginning of October. There is certainly optimism around Ten Hag’s team at the moment.
Cadiz, on the other hand, lost both of their last two matches before the enforced pause, being defeated 2-1 by Real Madrid and 3-2 by Real Union.
The Spanish side are no strangers to a shock, however, and beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 at the end of October. While they currently sit second-bottom in La Liga, only three points separate the 15th and 19th-placed sides in the Spanish top tier.
