Real Madrid will face Cadiz on Saturday evening in their second home game of the 2020-2021 season. These five players must shine for Los Blancos.

Now that the October international break is over, Real Madrid fans can focus on the upcoming fixture against newly-promoted Cadiz. Los Blancos will be heavy favorites, but after a hard lesson last October against Mallorca, they won’t be underestimating any La Liga side.

So here are five players on Real Madrid who will need to be at their best on Matchday 6 at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.

Real Madrid LW Vinicius Junior

Eden Hazard’s continued injury issues means that the responsibility of spearheading the attack falls on Vinicius Junior’s shoulders. And the 20-year-old Brazilian, as always, responds with a strong mentality and consistent production. It’s easy to overlook how much he helps Real’s attacks, but after scoring crucial back-to-back goals in the last two games, his importance won’t be undersold for much longer.

Vinicius has a very easy matchup against Cadiz’s right flank, so he could easily add to his goal tally and make it three straight. This man has been getting better and better, and the year 2020 has been his best yet professionally. Refer to his performance in the last Clasico as an example.
