Real Madrid vs. Cadiz Betting Preview
Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid crashed to a shock defeat at Rayo Vallecano on Monday. It was a thrilling fixture at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas, with the home side running out 3-2 winners.
Real fell behind before a Luka Modric penalty and Eder Militao’s effort gave them the lead. However, the hosts netted either side of half time to snatch the points.
Prior to the loss at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas, Real were unbeaten in their opening 12 league matches. Ancelotti’s troops were in dominant form in La Liga, starting with ten wins and two draws.
World Cup Break
However, no matter what happens on Thursday, Madrid will now trail rivals Barcelona going into the World Cup break.
Los Blancos’ recent form will be a slight concern for the boss. Since a 3-1 league success over Sevilla at the Santiago Bernabeu last month, Real have gone on to win just one of their following four in all competitions.
They lost to RB Leipzig in the Champions League and drew with Girona in the league. Real will be desperate to bounce back right away, and the champions head into this La Liga home fixture as the overwhelming favorites.
Below you will find the latest La Liga odds and our Real Madrid vs Cadiz game prediction.
Cadiz survived relegation by the skin of their teeth last season, finishing in 17th on 39 points. The Yellow Submarine finished one point above relegated Granada.
Of course, staying up again will be the priority this term, though the Pirates have made another poor start.
Cadiz languishes in 19th place at present after picking up just two La Liga wins thus far. They have drawn five and lost six of the other 11 and have scored just eight goals.
On a more positive note, Sevilla and Celta Vigo are also on 11 points, while Espanyol have 12 points to their name.
Cadiz will back itself to get out of this sticky situation in the second half of the campaign.
Sergio Gonzalez’s boys have made themselves tough to beat in recent months, losing just one of their last eight in La Liga.
However, they have picked up only one win during that spell, drawing five times to boot.
Still, Cadiz have collected four points from their last two fixtures, beating Real’s rivals Atletico Madrid and drawing 0-0 at Getafe.
Cadiz will have taken plenty of positives from their recent win over Atleti, but getting anything from Thursday’s trip to Madrid will surely be a step too far for the Yellow Submarine.

Real Madrid vs. Cadiz Betting Pick and Prediction
Despite finishing a staggering 47 points behind the eventual champions down in 17th, Cadiz held Real Madrid to two draws in the 2021-22 season.
At the Bernabeu last December, the soccer teams played out a 0-0 tie. Then in Cadiz in May, Ruben Sobrino’s goal canceled out Mariano’s early opener in a 1-1 stalemate. Unfortunately for Cadiz, we can see Real Madrid bouncing back with a big home win here.
Who to Bet On?
Ancelotti will still be reeling from his team’s inept performance at Vallecano, and the visitors could be on the wrong end of a Blancos backlash.
When Madrid last beat Cadiz, goals from Karim Benzema (2) and Alvaro Odriozola were enough for a 3-0 victory back in April 2021 – a repeat 3-0 Real win here is available at the top La Liga odds of +600.
Also, take a punt on the hosts to win both halves at +120.
Final Score Prediction: Real Madrid 3-0 Cadiz (+600)
