Real Madrid visit Cadiz needing the three points after drawing 0-0 against Getafe last Sunday. Los Blancos are now three points behind Atletico de Madrid in the table and can’t afford to drop more points if they want to compete for the title until the very end of the season.
Los Blancos suffered a 0-1 loss when they faced Cadiz at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano months ago, so they shouldn’t take the Andalusian team lightly. Furthermore, Madrid will be without both Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, so dominating the midfield won’t be an easy task. Casemiro is back after missing Sunday’s match with a suspension and Isco will be expected to start alongside him, with Rodrygo, Asensio, Vinicius and Benzema potentially playing upfront, although Castilla player Antonio Blanco could help the midfield line if Zidane feels like Casemiro and Isco aren’t enough.
Quite simply, Real Madrid have to grind a get the three points.
