Once again, it was not a comfortable evening of football for Real Madrid. Los Blancos have looked out of form in recent times but they managed to get a 2-1 win against Cadiz. Eder Militao and Toni Kroos put Carlo Ancelotti’s side two goals up before the visitors got themselves a goal back, setting up a nervy finish to the match. Ultimately, they held on for the win and the three points.

In many ways, this was the most important win of Real Madrid’s season till now. Coming into the match, they were five points behind Barcelona in the La Liga table, something that not many could have imagined when they were doing nothing but win earlier on in the campaign.

Injuries, fatigue and a lack of squad depth has taken its toll on this side though and the World Cup break has come at the perfect time for them. They are still two points behind Barcelona but that is much more manageable than four or five would have been.

Barcelona might have struggled in the big games this season, but they have done a great job against the smaller teams and won almost all of them. As a result, despite losing the El Clasico convincingly less than a month ago, they are the ones heading into the World Cup break as the league leaders.

January transfer window is more important for Real Madrid than first thought

Initially, the feeling was that Real Madrid were not going to make any additions to their squad in January.

The recent results should have hopefully changed that stance. This squad is simply not deep enough to compete for all three titles, especially with Barcelona in form.

Ancelotti does not need a lot of signings but one or two could go a long way in reinforcing this squad and keep them fresh throughout the season. Otherwise, we could see a similar downturn in form in the second half of the campaign as well.
