La Liga week 18
Real Madrid are unlikely to win anything this season. After three straight Champions League crowns under coach Zidane, former coach Lopetegui and now Solari have not found the solution with the current squad.

Last home game Real Sociedad came with its five wins only in La Liga. They outplayed, outpaced and dominated a weak Real Madrid side 2-0. The European champions drop to fifth place and registered their sixth defeat of the campaign.
In a competitive La Liga championship Real Madrid found themselves sitting 10 points behind FC Barcelona leaders and 5 points behind Atletico Madrid.
Coach Solari laments the lack of efficiency:
“The feeling is that we should have picked up three points and we didn’t. We have to put away the chances that we created. We’ll compete as we look to win the next game”.
This is football. We had a serious distraction that cost us a goal and that punishes you hard. Professional football is not kind when it comes to distractions. Then, we did everything possible to turn the result around despite the difficulties, the possible penalties and the sending off, but it’s no consolation”.
We compete to win, we always compete for that. We never underestimate the competition, we don’t underestimate anything or anyone. Fighting to win, compete and no underestimating anyone is the winning character.
We have shown character throughout the match, despite the adversities. There is no consolation because we lost, but I saw character and it would be unforgivable not to see that character”.
The answers could come from the new recruit Brahim Diaz who just signed with Real Madrid from Manchester City. The youngster is ready to play for his new team as he shared on his first press conference with the club:
“I’m available to the coach, I’m keen to get going and hungry to play, but the coach decides. There are great world-class players here, all my new teammates are magnificent and I’m very happy.
Real Madrid is the best team in the world, it’s a dream for every player to play at Real Madrid and the opportunity only comes once and you have to take it and take advantage of it”.
