Gameday!! Chance to go 6 points clear.

Yet another chance has been presented to Los Blancos after Sevilla dropped another 2 points last night away to Osasuna. VAR awarded the Andalusians a penalty in stoppage time but Ivan Rakitic’s attempt was saved handing Madrid a golden chance to capitalize on their lead at the top of the table. They will have to do so however without the services of both top scorers Vini Jr. and Benzema. Carlo will be forced to do something he detests. Rotate!!

One interesting inclusion has been that of Latasa. The young striker gets his first senior team call up.
