Cádiz vs. Real Madrid Team News
Varazdat Haroyan is out for Cadiz again owing to a shoulder issue. Ivan Alejo is a significant worry after being substituted for 12 minutes against Real Sociedad. However, the head boss Sergio is likely to resist the desire to tinker with his lineup, and the team that started Thursday’s game will be reshuffled. Ruben Alcaraz might be called in to strengthen the midfield. Alvaro Negredo is hoping to play with Lucas Perez inside the final third.
The absence of Isco, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale, and Marcelo from Real Madrid’s match against Levante was due to injuries, and they are still doubts about this match.
However, Dani Carvajal is expected to return after being sidelined on Thursday. The team that played last time out is expected to be reshuffled by manager Carlo Ancelotti heading to the European Cup final.
Carlo Ancelotti will rest his most key players, including Carvajal, Eder, Kroos, Militao, and Casemiro, for the La Liga league finals against Real Betis on 22nd May. Vinicius and Benzema, however, are expected to hold their places in the attack.
