According to Marca, Real Madrid has pushed themselves to the limit. With four games remaining in La Liga and a Champions League semi-final second leg against Chelsea looming, Zinedine Zidane’s men are completely focused on putting their best foot forward during this crucial period. Since 2008, Los Blancos have not successfully defended their league title.
Madrid are now just two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid after their defeat of Osasuna on Saturday evening, despite being plagued by injuries and ending the game with players who were deemed substitutes or reserves at the start of the season. The victory was a resounding response to those who claimed Los Blancos would be distracted by the Champions League, despite rough patches and the pressure of Atletico’s win at Elche hanging over them, not to mention the looming shadow of Chelsea.
Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane, has made it clear that they are only thinking about winning the remaining games in front of them, six to be exact, in order to complete a double that seemed impossible not long ago. Then there’s a massive week. The trip to London is followed by a match against Sevilla on Sunday, who are also in the title race. Barcelona will play Atletico Madrid the night before. It’s been a busy week.
