Published on December 1st, 2015 4:27 pm EST
Cadiz will have their work cut out for them on Wednesday when they play host to Real Madrid in Spanish Copa del Rey action.

In the Round of 32 in the Spanish Copa del Rey, the seven teams which qualified for the 2015-16 UEFA competitions square off against the remaining seven teams from Segunda Division B and Tercera Division. This leaves us with little seen matches such as Cadiz v Real Madrid.

As you can probably imagine, Real Madrid is the favourite to win this match. Here are the current betting odds:

Cadiz, 8.00
Draw, 4.80
Real Madrid, 1.33

According to these odds, a successful $100 wager on Cadiz would yield a total return of $700, while a successful $100 wager on Real Madrid would yield a total profit of $33.

A number of Real Madrid's top players, including Ronaldo and Bale, are not expected to suit up on Wednesday. Don't forget that Real Madrid is currently involved in a battle in La Liga with Barcelona, plus they are active in Champions League play, which means that they will continue to rest some of their biggest players through the preliminary rounds of the Spanish Copa del Rey. Despite some of their best players sitting on Wednesday, Real Madrid is still easily favoured to win. For the two teams, however, this game has dramatically different meaning - for Cadiz, this is one of the biggest games in the history of the club, while Real Madrid is surely looking ahead to other matches in other competitions.


According to the bookmakers, the three outcomes which are likeliest to take place are:

Real Madrid Wins 2-0, 7.50
Real Madrid Wins 2-1, 8.50
Real Madrid Wins 1-0, 9.00

The outcome that would involve a Cadiz win that is most likely to take place? That would be a 1-0 win for their side, which is currently listed at 23.00 on William Hill.


Can Cadiz pull off the massive upset? Can Real Madrid win despite missing both Ronaldo and Bale from the line-up?

We will see!

As we've seen with competitions such as the Spanish Copa del Rey, practically anything can happen, especially in the preliminary rounds.
