Cádiz vs Real Madrid: Storylines
Cádiz head to this round after remaining unbeaten in their last three league games. Alvaro Cervera's team has impressed on many occasions this season, like when they defeated Real Madrid early in the tournament. With an Anthony Lozano goal, they claimed the three points at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano and put to an end Los Blancos' 40-game undefeated record against newly-promoted sides.
In their first season at the Spanish top-flight since being promoted last year, Cádiz have done a good job so far. Their next task seems to be very difficult, though. Zidane's squad will probably be seeking revenge from last year's loss, but they also need to grab the victory for their title aspirations.
The Merengues claimed a huge triumph over Barcelona a few weeks ago, but they drew with Getafe in the last round and Atlético de Madrid increased the gap over them. Three points below the leadership, Real Madrid have to pick up wins to keep their hopes alive.
