An Inspiring Draw?
Although Real Madrid dropped points, yesterday featured an inspiring match from Real Madrid. It shouldn’t be lost that Real Sociedad is 3rd in the La Liga table and would always be a difficult match, but team showed an encouraging performance compared to previous results. If they can get their shooting boots a little cleaner, Real Madrid should continue to challenge for the available trophies!

When you see Real Madrid play like this you wonder why they don't do it more. They have the talent & legs to impose their will on anyone.— Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) January 29, 2023
Rodrygo's fluidity / link-up / dribbling / ball-carrying has been brilliant. Vini & Fede look re-charged.
Kroos has yet to misplace a pass
Process over results. Think those goals will eventually drop if you keep the foot on the pedal. Performance was good, and that you limited the work that Courtois had to do was because you won the ball high up the pitch prolifically. Can't be too upset. Good steps.— Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) January 29, 2023
Spoke about in more detail on last night's pod, but we have enough sample size now over a stretch of 2+ years that pairing Modric & Kroos together hurts you on both ends. 1 can come off the bench when Tchouameni returns. The two-way energy of youngsters is too valuable to ditch.— Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) January 27, 2023
Copa Del Rey Draw
Who will Madrid face in the semifinals of the CDR?! Who do you want to face?
