As with every season there are 2 main runners for the La Liga this year, those being Real Madrid and Barcelona. There have only been 5 seasons in the past 30 where somebody else has won the title, those teams being Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid, Deportivo La Conruna and Valencia twice. The only team that looks like it could challenge the titans this year are Atletico Madrid, currently second on 18 points, coming in with odds at 20/1 whilst Real Madrid stand at 6/4 and Barcelona come in with short odds of 4/7.
Although Barcelona have been dominant in recent years and the arrival of Neymar, who is possibly the hottest prospect in football right now and the prospect of a dream partnership with players such as Messi and Iniesta many would bet against Madrid. But personally Real Madrid are in with a very good chance, as they demonstrated in pre-season brushing aside teams like Chelsea, LA Galaxy, Everton, with such ease and proving to be such a dominant force throughout the past few seasons reaching three Champions League semi-finals, 2 cup finals, and winning the 2012 La Liga title. They will also be looking for revenge on their arch rivals after gifting FC Barcelona the title last season, Real Madrid will be out to prove a point this year by winning they’re thirty third La Liga title.

Last night, Real Madrid gave all their best to beat Borussia Dortmund with 3-0 but sadly, they were short for only one goal, even they had lots of chances.
In the first 20 minutes, the Galacticos took control over the ball, and created several goal chances, but they didn’t use them. Borussia threatened Madrid’s goal mostly by counter-attacks. In the last 10 minutes, the Galacticos started to play harder than ever, and their persistance finally paid off. Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos scored goals for Real Madrid, in “the late minutes” of the match. Sadly, the Galacticos weren’t able to crush Borussia’s dreams with a third goal.

After one of the hardest matches for Real Madrid, almost immediatly, the press started rumours about Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho leaving Real Madrid. That’s not impossible but, let’s hope it isn’t going to happen.
Despite the loss, the Galacticos showed the World that they shouldn’t be forgotten this season, despite the losses in UCL and La Liga. The only thing Real Madrid will probably focus on is the Copa del Rey, which they will play against Atletico Madrid on the 18th of May.
As a possible replacement for Mourinho (if he leaves) the press are mentioning Jurgen Klopp and Jupp Heynckes. These 2 coaches would “make” a new Real Madrid which would again, be one of the best in the World.
Real Madrid is hoping for a “huge” victory over Borussia Dortmund tomorrow at Santiago Bernabeu, to secure their pass to the UCL Finals. Will the Galacticos be able to do that? We’ll find that out tomorrow.
In the first match, Borussia crashed Real Madrid with 4-1 on Signal-Iduna-Park. Most of the job to help Borussia win did Robert Lewandowski, the Polish international player. One thing we all know is that the match tomorrow will be very interesting, and exciting to watch, you can visit Carbon Sportsbook to predict the result.
Real Madrid will probably start the match with their best possible line-up; Di Maria, Ronaldo, Ozil and Higuain will be the 4 biggest threats for Borussia Dortmund’s goal. While they (BD) will probably play easy, and wait for their chances.
Many people already consider Borussia Dortmund the UCL finalist, but nothing is over till the last whistle on Bernabeu. One thing we all know for sure is that the Galacticos will give their best, to qualify for the finals, and play against Bayern or Barcelona.
It’s not the first time that Real Madrid found themselves in a difficult situation in the semi-finals. In the first match they would loose 3-0 or 4-1 (just like the situation here) and still managed to turn the result over in their favor. Is that really going to happen again tomorrow? I can’t claim that’s going to happen but, I can make you sure, that Mourinho is got something up his sleeves, that will “boost” Real Madrid, to take a 3-0 or even a bigger victory over the Germans.
Real Madrid will be facing Valencia again, tomorrow at 21:30 on Mestalla. In the first leg, Los Blancos achieved their victory against Valencia (2-0). Five days later in a La Liga match, Ronaldo and the others crushed “The bats” with 5-0 for Real Madrid.
Jose Mourinho called all first team members, and a youngster – Mejias. This game is probably going to be more interesting then the last two, because Valencia has got nothing to loose this time. Real Madrid, is probably going to start the match with the best players, and try to score a goal as soon as possible. If that suceeds, Mourinho will probably “bring in” some other players, and “save” the first team members, for the upcoming matches.
However, this time Valencia will attack Real Madrid with all of their forces, because they’ve got nothing to loose, as I said before. The biggest threat for the Galacticos will be their ex player, Roberto Soldado, now the captain of “The bats”. Jonas and A. Costa were also causing the most problems to Real M. in the last 2 matches. This makes the game more even more interesting for betting, because it’s really hard to predict, but you can try to do that on sports betting sites.
Real Madrid players completed their last training session before the match against Valencia today. It took place at Real Madrid Football City. They trained in 3 separate groups. In the first grup were the players who played against Valencia on Sunday, in the second one, there were Real Madrid’s goalkeepers, and in the third group, the rest of the players, who didn’t play in the last game.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Jose Mourinho talked with Florentino Perez about turning things around after the 3-2 loss to Malaga.

Mourinho met Perez before departing for Portugal for the Christmas break, signaling a change in Mou’s demeanor.
“If I felt that like the players didn’t want to win, I would leave, I am too honest to continue a losing battle. I would be the first one to say so, but the players want to win. I’ve told them that they can go home with a clear conscience, they did as well as they could.” – said The Special One for the press, after the match against Malaga.
“The press cannot be blamed for the fact we are 16 points behind Barcelona or for the fact we have lost seven games (in all competitions). We have to take a look at ourselves.” – said The Special One for the press, after the match against Malaga.
Mourinho has “tightened up” the player’s Christmas holiday as they are all supposed to come back in Madrid on the 30th December in hopes of solving their issues and turning the season around.
