Atletico Madrid and Cadiz will face each other in La Liga this week. The match between Colchoneros and El Submarino Amarillo will be held at the Metropolitano Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 9pm UK time on Wednesday.

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid are one of the biggest clubs in Spain and regularly challenge for the La Liga title. Atleti also compete in the UEFA Champions League season after season. By their high standards, Colchoneros have had a really disappointing campaign, and it seems that the season is coming to an anti-climactic end.

Diego Simeone’s side are third in the La Liga table at the moment with 66 points from 32 matches. Atletico are two points behind leaders and city rivals Real Madrid, who won the title last season. They are as many as eight points above fourth-placed Real Sociedad. There is still a chance that Atletico could finish second, but it is more likely than not that they will end up third in the standings.

Atletico will head into the La Liga match against Cadiz at the Metropolitano Stadium on Wednesday evening on the back of a 5-2 victory over Real Valladolid away from home in the league. It came after a 3-1 hammering of Real Mallorca in front of their own fans in La Liga and followed a 1-0 loss at the hands of Barcelona at Camp Nou in the league.

Team News:

Marcos Llorente (adductor), Reinildo (ACL) and Stefan Savic (finger) are on the sidelines, and so is first-choice goalkeeper Jan Oblak. Ivo Grbic will continue in goal for Atletico.


Cadiz are a modest club in Spain whose sole objective is to make sure that they stay in La Liga. They have been playing in the top flight of Spanish football since the start of the 2020-21 season and have got the job done in the end. In 2020-21, Cadiz ended up as high as 12th in the La Liga table before finishing 17th in the standings last season.

Sergio González’s side are as low as 15th in the La Liga table at the moment with 35 points from 32 matches. Cadiz are only four points above the relegation zone and could still go down to the Segunda Division at the end of the campaign. That the likes of Valencia ad Espanyol are below them in the standings shows just how good Cadiz have been.

Cadiz will head into the La Liga match against Atletico Madrid away from home on Wednesday evening on the back of a 2-1 victory over fellow relegation candidates Valencia in front of their own fans. It followed a 1-0 loss at the hands of Osasuna at home in the league and came after a goalless draw with Espanyol on the road in La Liga.

Team News:

Jose Zaldua (ligament), Jon Ander Garrido (knee), Juan Cala (meniscus), Victor Chust (thigh), Roger Marti (hamstring), Brian Ocampo (knee) are all injured.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Atletico Madrid have lost 1 of their last 4 La Liga matches.
  • Atletico Madrid have won 4 of their last 5 La Liga matches.
  • Cadiz have won 2 of their last 5 La Liga games.
  • Cadiz have conceded 44 goals in 32 La Liga games.
  • Alvaro Morata has scored 12 goals and given 2 assists in 32 La Liga matches.


Cadiz are in real danger of getting relegated from La Liga at the end of the season and are unlikely to pose too much of a problem for Atletico Madrid. Atleti clearly have the better team and are also at home, and they should pick up all three points from the match with ease.
