Cadiz v Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Champions Real Madrid are in title-winning form as we approach the business end of the season. Los Blancos have been seeing off all comers at home and on the continent, putting themselves in a great position to defend their La Liga title and lift the Champions League once again.
Zinedine Zidane proved his tactical acumen in a key run of three games, beating rivals Barcelona in El Clasico and Premier League champions Liverpool over two legs in Europe. Madrid look like the team to beat once more in La Liga, but Cadiz did exactly that when these teams clashed in the capital earlier in the campaign.
That result was huge for Los Piratas, and has contributed to what’s been a successful season so far back in the top flight. The Yellow Submarine have put a healthy gap between themselves and the relegation zone, winning three of their five games prior to Sunday’s home game against Celta Vigo, following a run of five defeats and two draws in their previous seven.

Alvaro Cervera has done a great job to turn his team’s form around and surely secure their survival, but the hosts are still the 7/1 underdogs in these Cadiz v Real Madrid predictions. The away team are the 4/9 favourites with William Hill, while you can back the draw on Wednesday night at 7/2.
Even that looks a stretch given Madrid’s current form though, after a run of eight wins and two draws from their 10 La Liga fixtures since their surprise defeat to Levante at the end of January. Real’s experience has come to the fore in recent performances, and we can expect them to add another three big points to their tally here.
The visitors do have a few injury concerns to experienced heads such as Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvahal, while Raphael Varane could miss out after contracting Covid-19. Casemiro and Nacho Fernandez are both available for Madrid following suspensions though, with Alex Fernandez and Luismi Quezada the two players doubtful for this game for the hosts.
One to watch for Cadiz: Alvaro Negredo hasn’t exactly been prolific this season, but he’s still his team’s top scorer and his experience in leading the line has been key upon his return to La Liga. The former Real Madrid B man is 15/4 to score anytime against his former club on Wednesday.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Vinicius Junior has been in fine form in recent weeks, with the Brazilian forward looking like he may be capable of fulfilling his sizeable potential. The 20-year-old scored a superb brace against Liverpool in the Champions League but needs to hit the back of the net more in La Liga. He is 11/2 to do so by netting the opener here.
Long shot: Madrid are out for revenge after losing to Cadiz earlier this season. Los Blancos were 2-1 winners the last time they visited the Ramon de Carranza in La Liga, which was back in August 2005. Los Blancos are 8/1 to win by the same scoreline in these Cadiz v Real Madrid tips, rising to 55/1 with Vinicius Junior scoring first.
