Conclusion

Last year, we paraded around Europe proud of the quality of our substitutes that were ready to step in. The sheer depth of that squad ensured success in winning La Liga and the Champions League.

Even though La Liga is out of reach, there is no reason the team should play with any less heart. Pushing to finish in the highest possible place in the table should still be a priority. Many fans have given up, but pride for Real Madrid has always been there and surely they will not let that be tarnished.

In regards to the Champions League, this could make a woeful season for Real Madrid. Second string players who can fill the void during this time are necessary now more than ever before. In the event that any of the three first team players that are currently injured are unable to make it to the Champions League, Zidane’s backups will need to step up.

To conclude: these are the moments that take a club from great to out of this world. Real Madrid lives for these moments; when everyone thinks that they are down and finished they rise up and defend the badge. Don’t count Madrid out, because one way or another, they will find a way.
