Cadiz vs Atletico Madrid Preview
On Sunday in the south of Spain, Cádiz host league champions Atlético Madrid in the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla. Both teams are not in the best of form as of lately. We should have a game on our hands.
Cádiz were hammered in their last outing losing 4-0 away to Getafe. Álvaro Cervera’s side have only two wins this season, both coming away from home but they are struggling badly on their own ground. They have the poorest home record in the league, picking up just four points all season in front of their own fans.
This clearly isn’t good enough and if they want to stay in this division, they need to start picking up wins at home. A win here could really boost their confidence and would give themselves some breathing space on the sides below them. Having one of the stronger teams visit may just help ease the pressure to some extent as there won’t be any real expectation on them to get a result but if they are to lose, they could see themselves dropping into the bottom three this weekend.
Atléti are going into this match a little bit shell-shocked after suffering a 1-0 loss at home to AC Milan in the Champions League. Head Coach Diego Simeone will be hoping for a reaction from his players coming into this match with recent results not up to the standard required.
His side are sitting fourth in the table and a win here will put them within touching distance of rivals and league leaders Real. Los Colchoneros have been riding their luck lately scoring goals late and snatching results. Simeone will know his side can’t afford many more slip ups and a convincing win is what is needed right now to help get their title defence back on track.
Head to Head
- Atleti recorded 4-0 and 4-2 wins over Cadiz last season.
- The sides hadn’t previously met since the 2005/06 season.
Tomás Alarcón is out injured for the hosts while Martín Calderón is rated doubtful.
Atleti are missing Kieran Trippier to injury while Joao Felix is a doubt.
Cadiz vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
Score Prediction: Cadiz 1-2 Atletico Madrid
Both teams are in need of the three points. Cádiz will be hoping to cause an upset but Atléti should grow into the match. An early goal could change everything here but overall Diego Simeone’s side should have too much and ought to pick up the three points.
