Liassine Cadamuro-Bentaïba (born 5 March 1988) is an Algerian professional footballer who plays for French club Nîmes Olympique and the Algeria national team. A versatile defender, he can operate as a right back, central defender or left back.
With the Basques, Cadamuro played another three years with the B-side, two in the third division and one in the fourth. He was promoted to the first team for the 2011–12 campaign, following the arrival of countryman Philippe Montanier as team manager. On 10 September 2011 he made his La Liga debut, coming on as a substitute for Xabi Prieto in the 70th minute of a 2–2 home draw against FC Barcelona.
Cadamuro finished his first season with Real with 19 league appearances (13 starts), helping to a final 12th position. He agreed to a two-year extension on 2 January 2013, extending his contract until 2016.
On 8 January 2014, after having been sparingly played during the first half of the campaign, Cadamuro joined Segunda División's RCD Mallorca on loan until June. On 31 August, in the same predicament, he signed with another club in that level, CA Osasuna.
In early February 2016, Camaduro signed with Swiss third division club Servette FC for six months with an option for two further seasons, subject to a medical examination. He made his debut on 5 March against SC Kriens after replacing the injured Tibert Pont late into the first half, but only lasted 19 minutes as he was sent off after receiving his second yellow card of the match.
Cadamuro returned to France in the 2017 off-season, joining Nîmes Olympique from Ligue 2. He scored his first professional goal in that country on 19 September, helping to a 4–0 away defeat of Tours FC.
On 7 January 2012, Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodžić was in the stands to supervise Cadamuro in a league match against CA Osasuna. The following day, in an interview with French website FootMercato.net, the player stated that his intentions have always been to represent Algeria in international competition, despite also having the option to play for France and Italy.
On 10 February 2012, Real Sociedad's website announced that Cadamuro was officially called up by Halilhodžić for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Gambia. The Algerian Football Federation confirmed the information five days later, and he made his debut on the 29th starting in the 2–1 win.
Cadamuro was selected to the 2014 FIFA World Cup's list of 23, as a reserve player. On 26 June, even though on the bench, he managed to receive a yellow card for wasting time by kicking the ball away in the last group stage match against Russia, as the nation held on to the 1–1 draw and reached the last-16.
