The Slumping of Real Madrid Never Ends

With the way Barca and Atletico playing, there seems no way for Real Madrid of catching in the leaderboard. And another defeat last night at Malaga didn’t help the plan of resurgence and a repeat of La Liga trophy is nearly impossible yet statistically possible but that if Barca and Atletico will have a long spill of winless games next year. Unless Real Madrid starts winning again and a defeat of 4 or 5 games by leaders Barcelona will bring them back in contention but even that seems very unlikely.
With another Barca and Atletico win, the former heads into the Christmas break with insurmountable nine points lead at the top of the table. While the slumping Real Madrid is sixteen points adrift in the sinkhole with defeat last night at Malaga and a draw at home with struggling Espanyol. The Los Blancos’ fourth defeat of the season is two more than their entire defeats last season and all they can do to possibly raise a trophy is to concentrate in Copa del Rey and in the Champions League. Although they have a tricky path in the latter as they are paired with Manchester United in the last 16 draw.
