Disastrous. In this episode of the podcast, we discuss Real Madrid’s terrible performance versus Cádiz at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium over the weekend.
Multiple adjectives can be used to describe Real Madrid’s performance but the consensus among Madridistas is that it was bad. Really bad.
As we discussed with Dr. Jota Fúbol in Ep. 6, Real Madrid’s performances this season have not been convincing. However, the team was still able to grind out wins in order to stay undefeated. There was some indication that the team was about to turn the corner and make a positive run, but those hopes were rapidly dashed in the first half versus Cádiz.
Real Madrid’s terrible performance versus Cádiz over the weekend was somewhat foretold by Zidane’s choice of Starting XI. His choices were likely made due to the recent international break and the upcoming UCL clash versus Shakhtar Donetsk, but there are players that have no business being starters. Zidane’s weak choice of a Starting XI was on full display in the first half of the game. The performance of the team in the first 45 could be described as nothing less than tragic.
We get into all the details of the team’s performance in today’s episode of the podcast. We also discuss Barcelona’s loss at Getafe and what seems like a drop in overall quality in La Liga.
