Let's say it clearly. It will not be easy for Real Madrid to play these last two games. They will be forced to stay motivated and focused while FC Barcelona try to clinch the Liga title against Atlético and Deportivo. Chances for Real aren't great, but Ancelotti has to keep his players motivated ahead of what will be a very busy summer ahead.

Espanyol Starting XI: Casilla, Arbilla, Álvaro, Colotto, Moreno, Álvarez, López, Abraham, Víctor, Sergio García and Caicedo

Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo, Kroos, Isco, James, Bale, Ronaldoand Benzema.

Will Real Madrid overcome the huge blow taken when Juventus knocked them out of the Champions League? Will they recover from the decisive and unfortunate draw against Valencia?

One thing is for certain, they must try. As Ancelotti said, it goes without saying that this team must fight until the very end, until Barcelona manage to win the title.
