The royal club was without string of key players, with the likes of Toni Kroos and Vinicius Jr missed out from muscle strains the legs.

Having lost two of their previous league, the reigning champions wanted better outcomes in the away trip to Nuevo Mirandilla.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side dominated the match with more than 70% ball possession while creating chances after chances to score.

Cadiz’s Davi Gil was forced to pull an inspiring first half and up to thirty more minutes in the second one, as the goalkeeper saved numerous times while the post blocked three shots.

Karim Benzema also missed two sitters in the first half and Rodrygo, who had 14 dribble attempts (9 successful), was the constant menace in the rare game that he started as left winger.

The away team, however, could not score until the 72nd minute, until the defender Nacho unleashed a long-range strike into the bottom left corner.

Deadlock was broken, and another goal came four minutes later, when Asensio stroke from the edge of the box to double the lead.
