Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After surviving Osasuna in Pamplona, Atletico Madrid will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they face Cadiz on Matchday 8. Los Rojiblancos outplayed their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in their last home game and it is no wonder the bookies see them as hot favourites to beat the Yellow Submarine at Metropolitano Stadium. Even though Alvaro Morata is banned for the match, home win should be considered as Atletico have been showing signs of improvement of late. All Caglar Soyuncu, Rodrigo De Paul, and Thomas Lemar remain in the recovery room.
Cadiz, on the other hand, played out a boring goalless draw with Rayo Vallecano in midweek. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the Yellow Submarine are not regarded as good travellers. All Fede San Emeterio, Cala, and Brian Ocampo are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Antoine Griezmann):
Anthony Griezmann is a French forward born on 21st March 1991 in Macon, and he is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting footballers at the moment. The pacey striker started showing his potential shortly after coming through Real Sociedad’s youth academy and he went on to score 46 goals in 179 league appearances for La Real. Excellent displays in Spanish la Liga saw him become a target for a number of top clubs, but he eventually choose to sign for Atletico Madrid, and that proved to be a very good decision.
Griezmann continued the rich vein of form at Vicente Calderon, scoring some important goals as los Colchoneros enjoyed domestic and European success, while also becoming a key member of the France national team.
Playing as a winger or second striker, Griezmann possesses impressive technical skills, he is a strong finisher and still finds time to work hard for his side, so no wonder he is widely regarded as one of the leading forwards on the continent. He won the U19 European Championship with France and is tipped to lead Les Bleus to glory on senior level as well.
Highlighted Team (Cadiz):
Cadiz is a professional La Liga club that plays home games at Estadio Ramon de Caranza. The capacity of the stadium is 20,724 people, and it was opened back in September 1955. El Submarino Amarillo are well known for their yellow shirts, with the team wearing blue jerseys when playing on the travels.
The club was founded back on Sepember 8, 1910, with the team facing local rivals Cadiz Sporting Club in their first ever official match. Cadiz currently compete in la liga, with the team securing promotion to the Spanish top flight at the end of the 2019/20 season following a 15-year absence. Cadiz are one of those teams who produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Magico Gonzales is the most notable Cadiz player.
The legendary hot-tempered attacker scored 57 goals in 194 league appearances for El Submarino Amarillo, and he was well known for his amazing dribbling skills. Magico Gonzales scored 21 goals in 62 appearances for the Salvador national football team.
