Cadiz drew 0-0 with Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in a match related to the 18th day of the Spanish league where Honduran Anthony ‘Soko’ Lozano was ruled out due to injury.
The white team was higher than Cadiz, but could not turn it into big dangerous chances beyond a long-range shot by Uruguay’s Fedo Valverde in the 24th minute.
Before the end of the first half, ‘Soko’ Lozano clashed with Brazil’s Eder Milito and took the worst game. Catrocho could not continue in the second half, was replaced by a muscle disorder and Alvaro Negredo entered his place.
Carlo Ancelotti maintains his backbone in the match against Cadiz with changes to Uruguay’s Fedo Valverde for Croatia’s Luka Modric ‘Soko’ by Lozano and Ruben Soprino.
As he already announced at a press conference on Saturday, Ancelotti is handing over the reins to Eden Hazard. This is Belgium’s first appearance against Real Madrid since September 28.
The Italian coach has positive coronavirus infections of Lunin, Marcelo, Asencio, Rodrigo and Balen, including Mariano, who was not in a condition to play after the second dose of the vaccine he was given on Friday.
‘Soko’ Lozano returns to Santiago Bernabeu and will try to mark Real Madrid again as he did last season, but that encounter was in Valdez.
Real Madrid: Cordois; Lucas Vasquez, Milito, Alaba, Mendi; Casimiro, Cruz, Valverde; Vinicius, Hazard and Benzema.
CÁDIZ: Ledesma; Agabo, Foley, Gala, Espino; Allarcon, Johnson; Alejo, Alex Fernandez; Nephew and ‘Soko’ Lozano.
