A critical situation for Real Madrid in Europe

02 Oct 2019

Real Madrid are going to have to fight to make it into the Champions League’s knockout rounds, after collecting just one point from their opening two games.

A late equalizer from Casemiro prevented a shock loss against Club Brugge, coming from two goals down to draw 2-2, but the situation remains critical nonetheless.

They travel to Istanbul to face Galatasaray on October 22 knowing that a huge game awaits them, with another following four days later when they take on Barcelona in the league at the Camp Nou.

It’s a new situation for Real Madrid, who almost always make it through the groups with relative ease and their worst record after two rounds of fixtures in their 24 Champions League seasons was three points.

But the draw with Club Brugge makes things extremely difficult and their next European games have already been highlighted on the calendar.

The trip to Turkey is next, before Galatasaray visit the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in matchday four.

Paris Saint-Germain are the visitors in round five before Los Blancos travel to Club Brugge and their poor start means that their European fate could go down to the wire.
