It’s time to predict the remainder of the 2019-2020 season for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid have started off the league with a perfect record and are looking likely to get hold of the league title with seven games left. Los Blancos hold just a slender advantage over arch-rivals Barcelona thanks to a 2-0 win at Bernabeu earlier this season.

Real still has a long way to go with Zinedine Zidane clearly stating that every game is a final match. The team has clearly shown that on the pitch with four wins from four games including wins against Valencia and Real Sociedad.

On paper, the only fixture that may cause Real Madrid some difficulty seems to be the trip to San Mames against the Basque side. On the other hand, Barcelona has a run of difficult fixtures including a trip to Ballaidos and a game against rejuvenated Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou.

Zinedine Zidane should be lauded for the way he has managed the squad and has made many rotations keeping everybody fresh and up to the mark as Zidane waits for availability of full squad for the first time this season. Here are my predictions for the remaining seven fixtures.

Espanyol Vs Real Madrid (Game Week 32)

Espanyol game should be pretty easy for the Los Blancos as the Catalan side is dead last in the table and haven’t been on a good run of form either. Even the signing of former Real Madrid striker Raul de Tomas hasn’t helped in reviving their horrendous season and it is looking highly likely that they will be playing in the Segunda next season.

Real Madrid has Ferland Mendy and Luka Modric suspended for the game, but a completely rested Casemiro will make a comeback to the matchday squad after serving his suspension against Mallorca.

Prediction : Espanyol 0-3 Real Madrid
