EK does not have any services to Spain as of now. The major gulf carrier serving Spain is Qatar Airways.

I am sure Emirates can fill a plane from MAD, since Iberia don't seem to want to head east it must
be a winner for Emirates with all the connections they can offer from Dubai...

That is true, but is there a big demand for flight to Asia from Spain??

There is significant demand between Asia and Spain, especially India, Pakistan, China, Japan and there is also a sizeable Filipino population in Spain. Also, don't forget the connections from DXB to Australia and New Zealand.

Okay, but then I am pretty sure that we will see EK at MAD soon.

There is also the potential for EK to get feed out of LatAm. CCS, BOG and MEX to name a few places, could be EK feeders at MAD.
