Real Madrid denied an eighth consecutive La Liga victory at the Bernabeu by relegation-threatened Cadiz.
Real Madrid were denied an eighth consecutive La Liga victory when they were held at the Bernabeu by relegation-threatened Cadiz on Sunday night.
Real Madrid still tops the table by six points, having played one more game than second-placed Sevilla.
Throughout, the hosts dominated, registering 36 attempts on goal to the visitors’ four.
Despite several promising openings, Carlo Ancelotti’s side endured a frustrating night.
Vinicius Junior couldn’t do much on his 100th league appearance for Real Madrid, while Eden Hazard was largely ineffective in his first La Liga start since mid-September.
Karim Benzema also disappointed, while Alvaro Negredo squandered a late chance to give the visitors a much-needed victory that would have lifted them out of the bottom three.
