This weekend we saw the La Liga race hot up and it seems that El Clasico could be the fixture that tells us which way the league will go. Blaugrana spent this weekend coming up with five reasons why Real Madrid won’t lift La Liga title.
The Pressure Of Not Winning It Last Season
Last season we saw Los Blancos lift La Decima in the UCL, and that has certainly overshadowed their poor run in the league. This season the pressure will be on them to regain the title, but as things stand their season seems to be falling apart. Madrid’s fans are demanding on theirs players and manager, and especially after the great start to the season, they will expect the title.
Gareth Bale’s Form
The Madrid faithful have been given the Welshman some heavy criticism over the past 3-4 months, after he and Ronaldo seems to have had words and its starting to take its toll on the player. Madrid’s success last year was built around Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo, but this season we have seen this trio divided and it’s clearly starting to take its toll on the team.
Ronaldo On And Off Field Problems
Things haven’t quite gone well for the Portuguese ever since he lifted his third Ballon d’Or crown. The Portuguese captain has had some on field problems with teammates and media, but also in his personal life, and it all seems to be affecting him. He hasn’t been his prolific self lately and we can clearly see Madrid rely on him far too much.
While Real dominated the first half of the season, they have certainly fallen off at the bandwagon now. Barcelona have really impressed this half of the season after a very slow start and with Messi hitting form it’s tough to see them giving up their lead now.
Keeping Iker Casillas In Goal
Last season should’ve served as a warning to Real as their captain just isn’t the player that he used to be. Casillas has arguably been one of the best in the world for some time, but he has looked very unconvincingly over the last few seasons. The big games seem to be the time he makes his silly errors and that could cost Real Madrid from winning the title.
