Real Madrid vs Cadiz Preview

  • Tournament – La Liga
  • Date – Saturday, May 4, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 3.15 pm UK
  • Venue – Estadio Santiago Bernabeu

For Real Madrid, a victory against 18th-placed Cadiz could potentially seal their league title aspirations with four games to spare. Their commanding lead at the top of the table, sitting 11 points clear of second-placed Barcelona, underscores their dominance this season. With an impressive record of 26 wins, six draws, and just one defeat, Real Madrid have been a force to reckon with, boasting both the best attacking and defensive records in the league.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are on the cusp of reclaiming the title, with a win here and a stumble from Barcelona against Girona later in the day potentially sealing the deal. Despite a midweek draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Real Madrid’s focus remains sharp, with Ancelotti expected to make strategic changes to navigate their crucial European tie.

On the other hand, Cadiz finds themselves in a precarious position, battling relegation as they sit five points adrift of safety with five games remaining. Mauricio Pellegrino’s side is desperate for points, having only secured four wins in the league this season. Their home form offers some hope, but they face a daunting task against a Real Madrid side with a formidable away record.

For Cadiz, it’s a fight for survival, with each match taking on added significance in their bid to avoid the drop. Real Madrid, meanwhile, have their sights set on league glory and will be eager to secure three points to inch closer to the title.

Expect an intense battle as both teams vie for vital points, with Real Madrid aiming to assert their dominance and Cadiz fighting for their La Liga survival.

Real Madrid:

Thibaut Courtois is set to make his highly anticipated return to action, marking his first appearance of the season following a successful recovery from a knee operation. The Belgian goalkeeper’s comeback will provide a significant boost to Real Madrid as they aim to secure vital points against Cadiz.

However, David Alaba remains sidelined due to a knee injury, while Dani Carvajal is back from suspension and expected to start at right-back. Manager Carlo Ancelotti is likely to implement several changes to the lineup, with Eder Militao, Fran Garcia, Arda Guler, Brahim Diaz, Dani Ceballos, and Joselu all expected to feature prominently.


Cadiz will be without Jorge Mere, Fede San Emeterio, Jose Mari, Romingue Kouame, and Luis Hernandez due to injury concerns. Lucas Pires is likely to miss out as well, while Aiham Ousou faces a fitness battle but is expected to be available for selection.

Javi Hernandez could return to the side at left-back in place of the injured Pires. Sergi Guardiola and Maxi Gomez provide options in the attacking third, although Chris Ramos and Juanmi are expected to retain their spots. Alex Fernandez is poised to operate in central midfield once again for Cadiz.
