Atletico Madrid are in La Liga action on Friday evening, as they look to pick up a fourth straight win in the Spanish top-flight. Cadiz will be looking for a second straight win as they look to move out of the bottom three in La Liga.
La Liga Preview
Atletico Madrid may be out of the title race this season in Spain, but finishing in a top four place would still illustrate a very successful season for the club. Their chances of that finish looked unlikely just a couple of months ago, but they have moved back into the top four after winning their previous three games.
That run of form means that they now sit two points ahead of Real Betis, and are currently level on points with Barcelona. A win on Friday will lift them up to third for at least until the Catalonian giants kick off over the weekend.
Atletico moved above Real Betis last weekend with a win against their Champions League rivals. Joao Felix continued his inspired form by netting a brace, while Thomas Lemar also fired home with ten minutes remaining.
Cadiz look to have given themselves the best chance of staying in La Liga this season, as they are just a point from safety after going four without defeat in the Spanish top-flight. They picked up just a fourth win of the season last weekend, but a shock win on the road could give them an outstanding chance of survival.
Cadiz were deserving winners last weekend, as they beat Rayo Vallecano 2-0 at home. Both goals were scored in the second half, with Ruben Alcaraz scoring the opener ten minutes into the second half. The points were scored just eight minutes later, as Oussama Idrissi sealed the win for Cadiz.
Atletico Madrid vs Cadiz Head to Head
Atletico has a dominant record in this fixture, as they have picked up four straight wins against their rivals this weekend, and have averaged 3.3 goals per game. Their latest win came earlier in the season, as they won 4-1 on the road.
Atletico Madrid vs Cadiz Prediction
Cadiz should be in good confidence coming into this fixture, but the record that Atletico has over their rivals is extremely dominant. Therefore, I can’t see past the hosts winning this fixture on Friday in Las Liga.
