Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid face a hectic footballing schedule of nine matches in 31 days between November 21 and December 22, which has the potential to make or break their season.
The fixtures spanning the course of a month, including the likes of Sevilla, Inter and Atletico Madrid in LaLiga Santander, and the Champions League. There is not only resignation and concern for the results during that period, but what it could mean for Real Madrid’s season as a whole.
Ancelotti’s side are currently sat in second place in LaLiga Santander with a game in hand, meaning they will go top should they beat Granada on Sunday, November 21. But they also have to face leaders Real Sociedad, plus Sevilla, Atletico and two games against Athletic Club in domestic competition.
Their campaign in Europe seems to have been equally as successful, despite that shock 2-1 loss to Sheriff Tiraspol, Real Madrid accumulated nine points from four Champions League games, meaning qualification for the knockout stages is almost certain. However, Los Blancos can’t be complacent as their remaining games are against the Moldovan side, with Inter visiting the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu to end the group stage.
