Atletico Madrid – Cadiz
Atletico Madrid host Cadiz at the Wanda Metropolitano in a game from the 9th round of La Liga. Let’s take a look at this match and see what we can tell you about it.
Atletico Madrid are in a good shape at the moment. Los Colchoners are enjoying a run of three consecutive wins in La Liga. They took all of the points against Celta, Real Betis and Osasuna. Because of this right now Atleti are 4th in the standings with 14 points and they are just three points behind the current leader Real Sociedad. They have two game less, though – this is a big reminder we must make.
During the week Atletico Madrid had a game in the Champions League as well. Diego Simeone’s team traveled to Russia to face Lokomotiv Moscow, but only won a point after a 1-1 draw. Jose Gimenez scored Atleti’s only goal in the game, but soon after this Lokomotiv successfully equalised.
Let’s see what Cadiz are doing since their promotion to La Liga. At this moment they are doing very good – maybe much better than we all expected. At this moment Cadiz are 5th in the league with 14 points and they have lost just two of their 8 matches so far.
Last week Cadiz scored their 4th consecutive win in the league. Alvaro’s team traveled to face Eibar and scored twice for a 2-0 win. Alvaro Negredo and Salvi scored for the visitors in the first half of the game.
That’s the preview for the La Liga match between Atletico Madrid and Cadiz at the Wanda Metropolitano. It’s only logical to think that Atleti are favourites here, but you must be careful with Cadiz’ current shape – they are unbeaten in their last five matches in the league. Atletico must do their best here in order to secure the win.
