Team Zinedine Zidane approaches the upcoming fight in an unusual fourth place in the standings. “The Royal Club” behind the leading “Barcelona” is already eight points, and in order to join the championship race the team will have to try pretty hard. This is especially true for guest meetings, where a number of important glasses have not been counted recently. If the draw with Atletico can still be attributed to the level of the mattress, then a 0-0 draw with the current Athletic Bilbao, along with the defeat of Girona 1: 2, is definitely a failure. At the same time at home, after several setbacks at the start, Real Madrid reached its level. Zidane’s wards have won four games in a row, scoring at least three goals, and at the same time missed only one of them.
“Sevilla” on the brakes lowered the match with “Maribor”. Learning that “Liverpool” is smashing “Spartacus” wards Eduardo Berizzo did not really try, saving energy for the match with the “Real”. Draw with the Slovenes brought “nerviontsy” in the playoffs. Adds the mood for the match and a good game of “Seville” in the last rounds. “Nervions” won three games in a row – from “Celta” 2: 1 and “Deportivo” 2: 0 at home, as well as visiting “Villarreal” – 3: 2. The victory over the “yellow submarine” interrupted the four-legged away series of “Nerviots”, during which the team lost to Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Athletico Bilbao.
