Clubs hate international breaks for a very good reason: injuries. Real Madrid is no exception. They lost Vinicius Junior and Eduardo Camavinga, who fell while playing for Brazil and France, respectively. Still, even with those key players out, Las Vegas Soccer betting lines have Real Madrid as the favorite to defeat Cadiz, who are winless since early September.
Cadiz Already Lost Against Other Powerhouses
Nobody is expecting Cadiz to fight for the title, but the team must be careful. Otherwise, they won’t be playing in La Liga next season, being closer to the relegation zone than the top 10.
Having lost on the road to Barcelona (2-0) and Atletico Madrid (3-2) didn’t help. However, this will be their first home match against a powerhouse, and the atmosphere will be insane.
At home, Cadiz owns a 2-3-1 record, scoring seven goals and finishing with a clean sheet three times.
Most recently, Cadiz lost 1-0 to Getafe despite playing with one more player the entire second half. Not taking advantage of these opportunities makes them the underdog in our soccer lines week in and week out.
Bellingham Back for Real Madrid
Yes, Junior and Camavinga are out, but Real Madrid’s top scorer will return after missing the team’s last contest before the international break. I’m talking about Jude Bellingham, who has scored 10 goals in La Liga.
Real Madrid crushed Valencia 5-1 in their last match without Bellingham, but Junior scored twice. Now, besides Bellingham, Rodrygo Goes and Joselu Matos are expected to take the reins on offense.
Real Madrid is having a good season, but not good enough to be atop the standings. Los Blancos are second, two points behind Girona. Still, they are a well-balanced squad, with 28 goals scored and nine conceded. In fact, no other team has conceded fewer goals.
The injury of Junior should also make Brahim Diaz have more minutes on the field. Diaz has already shown that he deserves a chance. Just take a look:

Real Madrid won its last road game, which was against Barcelona, taking their road record to 7-1-1 in all competitions.
Real Madrid vs Cadiz Head-to-Head
Last season, Real Madrid won both meetings with Cadiz. First, 2-1 at Santiago Bernabeu. Later, 2-0 at Nuevo Mirandilla.
Regardless of the final score, Real Madrid won 6 of their last 10 meetings with Cadiz. I expect that trend to continue and once again with the total going over 2½ goals, like it happened in five of those six victories.

Cadiz vs Real Madrid Betting Predictions
Junior and Camavinga will be missed, but we’re talking about Real Madrid. That means players such as Luka Modric and Francisco Garcia are ready to step forward. Defensively, David Alaba and Nacho Fernandez are back at 100% and goalkeeper Andriy Lunin is highly motivated.
Real Madrid needs this win because Girona is a clear favorite on our soccer odds to defeat Athletic Club on Monday. They can’t allow them to increase their advantage at the top.
