Real Madrid came from behind the last matchday to bag all three points on offer in their last outing against Elche at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. Los Blancos’ manager Zinedine Zidane experimented with changes in the starting XI. Firstly, Lucas Vasquez was released off his defensive duties. He started on the right alongside Ferland Mendy in midfield in a formation that looked like three at the back and two up front with Casemiro playing more centrally in a midfield diamond.

At this point in the league, Madridistas do not care about how the points come from and the last matchday was particularly good. The club bagged all three points but also, the leaders Atleti Madrid dropped a couple away at Getafe. Los Blancos now sit second in the points table, six points behind the leader and just a single point over rivals FC Barcelona who still had a match in hand at that time.

With the title race very much spurred to life by the happenings of the last matchday, we have all reasons to believe that Real can still win the league. To clarify the thought processes further, here are three reasons why it is logical and not unreasonably optimistic to believe so.
