Real Madrid is back into the La Liga challenge and has made its place stronger after serving a smashing defeat to Deportivo la Coruna. The victory has brought the team back into the challenge but it will have to win its remaining matches and a few of them could prove to be tough.
Real Madrid defeated Deportivo la Coruna with a 2-6 score and the victory has revived its chances of winning the La Liga title, Sportal reported. The Wednesday match saw Real Madrid playing with full strength and though Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were missing from action, Alvaro Morata gave his team the big break in the very first minute.
He shot the goal in the front with a deep flick and then James Rodriguez scored double goals, including one that flew over the goalkeeper. Isco, Lucas Vazquez and Casemiro kept the score sheet going and it never felt that the key Real Madrid players were not on the field. It was evident from the match that Zidane knows how to balance his team.
However, Real Madrid has some tough challenges ahead. According to Fox Sports, the April 29 match against Valencia could be a tough nut to crack, as the rival team would be playing for pride and since it recently defeated Real Madrid by 2-1 in February, the faceoff could be a challenge for the home team. The one against Sevilla, scheduled for May 14 is also going to be difficult as the team won its recent match against Real Madrid in La Liga.
Though Granada does not seem like a strong contender, the May 6 match could take Real Madrid by surprise as the focus of the latter could go astray, resulting in an unexpected loss. Nevertheless, Real Madrid is back in the challenge and fans would definitely wish them to end the dry run that has been following it since 2012.
