Final Training Session

And thus, Los Blancos completed their final training session ahead of the final game of the season against Europa League finalists Villarreal. The squad is far from full as usual, but Real Madrid have to leave everything on the pitch in order beat the formidable yellow submarine and hope for a slip-up from their noisy neighbours.

Then there’s this stat

Apparently, Real Madrid have never won the title while trailing in the table in the last matchday... Yet, Zidane’s men might have to pull just that today.

I wouldn’t say no to this one

We’ve been hearing about Houssem Aouar for a while now. If the move does indeed happen, it will be interesting to see who will depart from the midfield. It’s hard to think we’ll keep everyone and add Aouar -again, he may be headed elsewhere. Keep in mind that there are midfielders on loan as well, the most prominent of those being Odegaard. How would you feel about a potential Aouar signing?

Allegri reportedly snubs Spurs to wait on Real

AS report that Max Allegri has said “no” to Tottenham Hotspur (quick reminder that they sacked Mourinho and are currently coached by interim manager Ryan Mason) because he is waiting to see what happens with the gaffer’s position at Los Blancos.

HALA MADRID. With our team we stick, through thick and thin.

Wish our boys luck and hope for something great to happen. Enjoy yourselves and may the Madridismo be with you. Good day!
