Real Madrid’s home game against Cadiz should be their most manageable one in what will be a tough and demanding month of October for Los Blancos. Madrid begin their Champions League season next Wednesday and they will also visit Barcelona the following Saturday, so it’s time for coach Zinedine Zidane to start making rotations.
It’s not that Madrid have been playing great football so far this season either, so it’s also time for them to gain confidence and momentum, especially on offense. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has often been their most notable player, so defensive improvements should also come their way if they want to make a statement this month.
All in all, Cadiz could be a good opportunity for Madrid to start improving. However, they shouldn’t take this game for granted as Cadiz have been solid this season, even more so knowing that they just promoted to the Spanish Primera Division.
