Real Madrid is welcoming Cadiz to Santiago Bernabeu in round 6 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Real Madrid hasn’t lost any of their 4 LaLiga games this season, but they have been struggling in the attacking end. With 10 points, Real is in first place in the standings. In their last LaLiga game against Levante on the road, Real Madrid has had 55% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in each half, Real Madrid has won this game 0-2. So far this season, Real Madrid has scored 6 goals, and 2 of those were scored by Vinicius Junior, while Valverde, Benzema, and Ramos added 1 goal each. Rodrygo, Carvajal, and Benzema added 1 assist each. Militao, Diaz, Kroos, Carvajal, and Hazard are all injured, and they miss this match. Real Madrid has conceded only 2 goals so far this season, and their defense is not the problem, but they lack options in the attacking end. Hazard is close to being fully recovered and let’s hope he will stay healthy because not only Real Madrid needs him, but Belgium will also need him in the World Cup next year. Real Madrid is the current champion, but they will have a tough time defending that title.
As the newcomer to LaLiga, Cadiz is doing incredibly well in this early LaLiga season, and they have only 2 losses in the first 5 games. With 7 points, 5 scored goals, and 6 conceded goals, Cadiz is in 9th place in the standings. Pombo, Alejo, Negredo, and Sanchez have each scored 1 goal for Cadiz so far this season. Gimenez, Negredo, and Malbasic have each added 1 assist. Quezada is the only injured player for Cadiz as of right now. In their most recent LaLiga match against Granada at home, Cadiz was solid with 41% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 74% of the correct passes. Cadiz was losing 0-1 at half time, but they were able to tie the result in the 48th minute. Neither team was able to score again, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. It’s still early in the season, and we are yet to see if Cadiz can stay consistent, but if they can win a few more points, their season will become much easier. Cadiz has only 1 goal this season, and that is to stay in LaLiga for another season, and they are doing a fantastic job so far.
Real Madrid and Cadiz have met only 3 times so far, and Real Madrid has won all three of those games. The last match between these two teams was played back in 2015. It’s clear that Real Madrid is the better team here, and sooner they get their offense going, the easier it will be. I’m siding with Real Madrid and goals here.
