Real Madrid blow as two players test positive for Covid-19 ahead of Cadiz

Real Madrid have been dealt a double personnel blow ahead of their meeting with Cadiz.

Real Madrid vs Cadiz

Real Madrid’s next outing will see them face off with Cadiz in a La Liga clash this coming Sunday.

Los Blancos head into the game having continued their fine start to the season with a solid 2-0 win over city rivals, Atletico Madrid, last time out.

Said win keeps Madrid sat eight points clear of second-place Sevilla, though they do have a game in hand on Madrid.

Another victory this time around, though, does seem pretty likely for Carlo Ancelotti and co.

Cadiz head into the meeting in the Spanish capital sat 18th in the Spanish top-flight. They have won just two league games all season and have, at the time of writing, conceded the second-most goals in La Liga this term.
