Real Madrid Vs Cádiz LaLiga Football Match Score 2023
Real Madrid will be aiming to return to winning ways in Spain’s top flight when they resume their domestic campaign away to Cadiz on Saturday night. Los Blancos suffered a 3-2 loss to Villarreal in La Liga last weekend and have now dropped 13 points behind division leaders Barcelona in the table with 10 games left, while Cadiz occupy 14th, four points clear of the relegation zone. Cadiz picked up a morale-boosting three points away to top-four challengers Real Betis last weekend, with Ruben Alcaraz making the breakthrough from the penalty spot in the 53rd minute before Chris Ramos doubled the away side’s advantage six minutes later.
The result moved the Yellow Submarine into 14th position in the table, four points clear of the relegation zone, and they will be bidding to record their eighth league victory of the campaign this weekend. Sergio Gonzalez’s side have the third-worst home record in La Liga this season, picking up only 18 points from 14 matches, but they held Los Blancos to a 1-1 draw in the corresponding clash last term. Cadiz, who famously beat Real Madrid 1-0 at Bernabeu in October 2020, are in their third straight campaign at this level of football, which is their best run since the early 1990s.
There will be plenty of twists and turns in the coming weeks when it comes to the relegation battle, but a positive result in this contest would lead them nicely into a huge game away to Espanyol next Friday. Real Madrid, meanwhile, will enter this match off the back of a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.
Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio scored the goals for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, who are now in a commanding position when it comes to reaching the semi-finals, while the team are also chasing Copa del Rey success this term, with Osasuna their opponents in the final of the competition next month. Only a miracle will allow Real Madrid back into the La Liga title race, though, as they are currently 13 points behind leaders Barcelona, who have 72 points from their 28 matches. Los Blancos remain second in the table but are now just two points clear of third-placed Atletico Madrid following their 3-2 home defeat to Villarreal last weekend, with Samuel Chukwueze’s second of the match in the 80th minute providing to be the difference between the two sides.
Ancelotti’s side have only won two of their last six league matches, which has seen them fall away in terms of the title race, and a number of key players could again be rested for this game, with the second leg of their quarter-final with Chelsea set to take place next week. Real Madrid have the third-best away record in the league this season, but four of their five La Liga losses in 2022-23 have come on their travels, which should hand Cadiz confidence.
Los Blancos know they need a victory to go into the six-week World Cup break on a high note. They could be without star striker Karim Benzema, who has five goals in seven games but has been dealing with muscle fatigue and aims to be fit for France’s World Cup opener. Rodrygo (four goals, four assists) and Vinicius Junior (six goals) can power the attack with aplomb, and Real certainly have no reason to fear the Cadiz offense.
Cadiz have scored just eight goals in their 13 matches – three of those away from home – and they have conceded 24. Los Blancos have scored 31 while yielding 13 and are 4-2-0 with a 14-6 goal advantage at home. Real will be eager to make up for the last meeting at the Bernabeu, when they overwhelmed Cadiz but failed to score. They had an astounding 36 shots, nine on target, while holding Cadiz to four, and zero on goal.
Cadiz have been building some confidence during their recent strong run, and their defense has improved markedly. Their only loss in the past eight matches is a 5-1 setback to Vallecano, the same team that handed Real their first loss on Monday. Cadiz have allowed five goals over the other seven games during the run, after yielding 14 in the five losses to open the season. They have four clean sheets in the past eight games, after allowing two or more in four of the first five. They outshot Real 21-16 in their most recent meeting, at home back in May.
Los Blancos put just 30% of their shots on target in the two matchups last season. The Cadiz attack has been struggling, but six players have scored goals, led by Alex Fernandez with two. All eight of their goals have come in the past eight matches, and they knocked off Atletico Madrid 3-2 on Oct. 29. Fernandez had one of the goals in that game, and Theo Bongonda also scored before Ruben Sobrino won it nine minutes into second-half stoppage time.
Cadiz will entertain Real Madrid at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla in La Liga on Saturday. The hosts returned to winning ways after five games last time around, as second-half goals from Chris Ramos and Rubén Alcaraz helped them to a 2-0 win over Real Betis. Betis saw two players sent off in the game, which helped Cadiz’s cause.
Real Madrid suffered a blow to their title-retention hopes in their previous outing as they suffered a 2-3 home defeat to Villarreal. It was their second defeat in three games and they now trail league leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona by 13 points. Vinícius Júnior was on the scoresheet after Pau Torres’ own goal put them ahead. Madrid faced Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday and goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio helped them take a 2-0 lead on aggregate in the quarter-finals. They travel to London for the second leg on Tuesday, so might opt for a second-fiddle squad in this league meeting against the hosts.
