Real Madrid face Cadiz in their 18th matchday of the La Liga season as Los Blancos look to extend their winning streak to 11 games. Los Blancos are currently top of the table, eight points clear of second-placed Sevilla, while Cadiz occupy the 18th position, two points behind 17th-placed Alavés ahead of the next set of La Liga fixtures. Real Madrid’s excellent run of form also allowed them to claim first spot in Group D in the Champions League, and they have been paired with French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 stage of the competition.
The home team’s preparations for this match have been interrupted by a COVID-19 outbreak in the camp, but it has seemingly been contained and Los Blancos will take to the field this weekend looking for their 14th La Liga victory of what has been an impressive season to date.
