Cadiz vs Real MadridLa Liga, KO: 21:00 Apr 21, 2021, Estadio Ramon de Carranza
After being held by Getafe, Real Madrid will be hoping to bounce back as they travel to the Estadio Ramon de Carranza for a Spanish La Liga fixture against Cadiz. They will consider Sunday’s result a blip and should return to winning ways against an inconsistent Cadiz team.
Cadiz are coming off a 0-0 home draw against Celta Vigo last time out in La Liga. They were lucky to earn that point as Celta Vigo put up a dominant display marred by poor finishing.
The result means Alvaro Cervera's men are unbeaten in three matches and have moved away from the threat of relegation. They remain in the bottom half of the table but are now nine points above the relegation zone.
Cadiz have been far from convincing at home and have claimed just two wins from their last seven matches. They have lost 4-0 to Athletic Bilbao in that run and were also beaten 4-2 by leaders Atletico Madrid.
Real Madrid were disappointing in their previous La Liga fixture as they were held 0-0 by Getafe. With a number of players missing through injury, suspension or COVID-19 isolation, they struggled to find their spark and needed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to bail them out a few times.
The result means Los Blancos are now three points behind leaders and local rivals Atletico Madrid. While they will be disappointed with the draw against Getafe, they will be confident of getting back to winning ways on Wednesday with a number of players expected to return.
Madrid had claimed four straight wins prior to the draw at Getafe, including a 2-1 victory in the El-Classico. They are also unbeaten in their last 11 away matches, with a 4-1 victory over Deportivo Alaves and a 3-1 triumph at Celta Vigo among their results in that run.
How the bookies view it
Los Blancos have momentum right now and with certain players expected to return, I am leaning towards an away win here.
Head to head
There have been four previous matches between Cadiz and Real Madrid with both teams claiming two wins apiece. Cadiz earned a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in October.
Players to watch
Karim Benzema came off the bench at Getafe and is expected to return to the starting lineup on Wednesday. The French striker has 19 goals for Real Madrid this season and is priced at 17/20 by Unibet to score anytime.
Cadiz have a few attacking threats of their own, particularly with Alvaro Negredo who is their top scorer with seven goals. Bet365 has the veteran striker at 4/1 to score anytime.
Anything else catch the eye?
While Real Madrid are expected to win on Wednesday, they often struggle to keep things tight at the back and are likely to concede. An away win and over 2.5 goals could be worth a punt at 6/5 with betway.
Real Madrid have led at the break in three of their last four La Liga matches and could be backed to earn a halftime win at 19/20 with William Hill. Both teams often score much of their goals after the interval, so the second half could be picked as the highest scoring half at 15/13 with Red Zone.
