Zidane's side go in search of their eighth consecutive victory at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium to remain at the top of the table (6:30pm, CEST).
LaLiga returns today after the international break, 13 days after Real Madrid climbed to the top of the league table. The Whites are back in action in what will be an unprecedented encounter in the competition since the 2005/06 season. Cádiz visit the Madridistas 14 years later at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium (6:30 pm, CEST).

The leaders, who are unbeaten going into matchday six after collecting three wins and one draw from the four played in the competition (the first game was postponed), will be aiming to continue their run of seven consecutive victories at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium and remain at the top of the table. Zidane's side have also gone 15 games unbeaten in LaLiga.


Cádiz are well disciplined and we want to put on a good display and take the three points", said Zidane in the press conference prior to the match, for which, due to international commitments, the coach saw the return of his players just two days ago. Zidane has named a 20-man squad for the encounter, which sees the Whites begin a demanding 15 days playing five games, including their first match in the Champions League and El Clásico.

A historic encounter
It will be the first time that Cádiz have visited Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium to face Real Madrid (they previously played at the stadium against Castilla). The visitors go with the intention of winning for the first time in their history away at Real Madrid (15 defeats and one draw). The team managed by Álvaro Cervera has had a good start to the season, taking seven points out of a possible 15. But the Andalusians' impressive away form - Athletic (0-1) and Huesca (0-2) - means they must not be taken lightly.
