Real Madrid defeated Eibar 2-0 over the weekend as they head into what is, without a doubt, their most important week of the season.
There have been multiple “do or die” moments for Los Blancos this season but THIS is the week that will essentially determine whether or not they will lift any silverware.
Real Madrid will face Liverpool on Tuesday at home in the first tie of the UCL Quarterfinals.
And even if they get a good result against The Reds, there will be no time to celebrate as they will face bitter rivals FC Barcelona in El Clásico on Saturday, April 10th in a game that will determine whether they will be able to defend their La Liga title.
Both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid head into El Clásico in good form. And with leaders Atlético dropping points against Sevilla, a win for Los Blancos will put them level on points with Atlético. However, Real Madrid will technically be in the lead, as the tiebreaker is given to the team with the better head-to-head record, which in this case is Los Blancos.
The importance of this week for Real Madrid cannot be overstated.
In this episode of the podcast, we discuss the importance of stats in football, the upcoming game vs Liverpool, El Clásico, and more.
