With a 1-0 win over Valladolid, Real Madrid have won 4 games on the bounce while Atlético Madrid and FC Barcelona drop points.
Now sitting only 3 points behind Atlético, Real Madrid are truly back in the fight to retain their La Liga title. And they have done so with a very thin roster riddled by injuries.
Zidane has been able to string together 4 straight wins in La Liga without the likes of Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Rodrygo, Fede Valverde, Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, and more.
However, a recent injury to Karim Benzema is yet another blow to Los Blancos, especially considering that the team is now entering a truly pivotal point in the season and will also be facing Atalanta next week in the UEFA Champion’s League.
In this episode, we discuss the win over Valladolid, Zidane’s “luck”, Real Madrid’s unshakable midfield, and we also discuss the best possible outcomes from the midweek UCL clash versus Atalanta.
