Atletico Madrid is hosting Cadiz at Wanda Metropolitano in round 9 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Atletico has been one of the best teams in LaLiga so far this season, and they are the only undefeated team left. With 14 points, 13 scored goals, and only 2 conceded goals, Atletico is in 4th place in the standings. Not only Atletico is the best defensive team in LaLiga so far, but they have also been one of the best offensive teams, which is impressive considering their mentality. In the Champions League, Atletico has 1 loss, 1 win, and 1 draw, and they are in second place in their group with 4 points. Atletico was playing against Osasuna on the road in their last LaLiga game, and they were the better team in that game with 56% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 81% of the correct passes. Atletico was the better team in this match, and they have won 1-3. Suarez has scored 4 goals for Atletico in this game, while Felix added 3 goals. Llorente has 2 goals. Angel Correa has added 3 assists. Vrsaljko, Costa, Carrasco, and Vitolo are all injured, while Grbic is still questionable for this game. I have to be honest, I like this Atletico team because they are still a solid defensive team, and they are playing better soccer in the attacking end. I Atletico can stay consistent this season, I can see them in the battle for the title in LaLiga.
Cadiz has lost only 2 of their 8 games in LaLiga this season, and they are doing surprisingly well. Cadiz is in 5th place in LaLiga with 14 points, 8 scored goals, and only 6 conceded goals. Offensively, Cadiz might not be a superpower, but their defense has been outstanding so far. In their latest LaLiga game, Cadiz was playing against Eibar on the road, and they have had only 27% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and extremely low 46% of the correct passes. Cadiz didn’t play well in this game, but they were defending well throughout the entire match, and they have scored 2 goals in 3 minutes in the first half. Cadiz has won this match 0-2. Negredo and Sanchez have each scored 2 goals for Cadiz so far this season, while Negredo also added 3 assists. Quezada, Carcelen, Nano, and Jose are all injured, while Mauro and Perea are still questionable for this game. It’s a surprise that a newcomer can be this high in the standings, but I don’t think Cadiz has the depth and the quality to stay op there for much longer, and I see them sliding down the standings soon because they don’t have the offense to score, and their defense will not stay on this level forever.
Atletico is still undefeated this season, while Cadiz has 4 wins on the road this season. Both teams are playing well, but Atletico is a much better team here, and I see them getting another win.
