It’s time for Real Madrid to prove that they still want to win the 2017-18 La Liga title. Los Blancos host Barcelona in what will a decisive match if Zidane’s men can’t get the three points, as Messi and Co. would be 14 points ahead of them —with one more game played—.
Madrid have played mediocre football so far this season but took care of Barcelona when they met in the Spanish Super Cup last August. Still, when that match was supposed to be the beginning of Madrid’s era, Los Blancos started dropping points and have to prove themselves once again.
Zidane has a healthy roster at his disposal while Barcelona will miss Umtiti, Dembele and Paco Alcacer. All things considered, Real Madrid should be considered favorites for this game but a draw would work for Barça, meaning that all pressure is on Madrid’s side as they are also playing in front of their fans.
