Cádiz suffered a home defeat to R Madrid on Wednesday at Estadio Ramon de Carranza. With both teams drawing in their previous fixtures, they were keen to pick up points. Cádiz arrived with the intention of increasing their league score after a scoreless draw against Celta Vigo in their previous match whilst RMA were unable to beat Getafe in a 0-0 draw. As things stand, Cádiz are in 13th place, with 36 points from 31 matches, while RMA sit in 1st, with 70 points from 31.
It was an impressive opening from RMA, with Karim Benzema opening the rout in the 30th minute. The momentum was now with Los Blancos, who then scored again through a goal from Alvaro Odriozola after 33 minutes to establish a 2-0. However they weren't finished yet and Karim Benzema made it 3-0 just before half-time, finishing the first half 0-3. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the game ended 3-0.
For Cádiz, Ivan Saponjic, Juan Cala, Anthony Lozano, Carlos Akapo and Ivan Alejo, came on for Alvaro Negredo, Jose Mari, Salvi Sanchez, Isaac Carcelen and Alfonso Espino. RMA replaced Marco Asensio, Isco, Dani Carvajal, Miguel Gutierrez and Mariano Diaz with Vinicius Junior, Alvaro Odriozola, Raphael Varane, Marcelo and Karim Benzema.
There were bookings for Salvi Sanchez, Isaac Carcelen, Jens Jonsson and Carlos Akapo from Cádiz. For RMA, Raphael Varane, Nacho and Marcelo saw yellow.
