Real Madrid visit Cadiz hoping to bounce back from the disappointing 0-0 draw against Getafe last Sunday. Varane, Nacho, Carvajal and Casemiro are back with the squad but Los Blancos will be without both Kroos and Modric, so the midfield could in trouble.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Nacho, Militao, Marcelo, Casemiro, Isco, Blanco, Vinicius, Asensio, Benzema.
Cadiz predicted XI: Ledesma, Carcelen, Mauro, Fali, Espino, Jose Mari, Salvi, Jonsson, Jairo, Negredo, Sobrino.
It won’t be easy for Madrid to take care of business tonight without Kroos and Modric. Cadiz conquered the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano with a 0-1 win last fall and will be expected to compete very hard, while Los Blancos simply don’t have reliable players in the midfield. Plus, it will be important for them to focus on the game and keep their minds out of the Super League controversy.
Still, Real Madrid must find a way through if they want to compete for the title.
