Real Madrid faces 2022 with only one thing in mind: the beginning of the new year is also the beginning of the decisive part of the season. Maintaining the level shown in recent months would inevitably translate into celebrations at the end of the season.
That is why Ancelotti and his team are not taking their only New Year’s resolution out of their minds: to win everything.
January presents Real Madrid with the challenge of the Supercopa de España, where they will face teams like Atletico, Barça and Athletic, whom they have beaten in the first round of La Liga.
A League that seems more than on track. The cushion of points that already separates them from their competitors makes them clear favorites. This superiority, added to the effectiveness of Carlo’s rotations, invites the fans who want it all to dream.
They want the Cup, which they have not lifted since 2014 and where they are facing their last season’s executioner.
But above all, they want the Champions League. In less than two months, an ironic destiny proposes a tie that will mean a before and after. Eliminating PSG would mean much more than just advancing to the knockout rounds of Europe’s top competition. It would be a blow of authority. The confirmation that this Real Madrid wants to fulfill its New Year’s resolution, that this Real Madrid wants to opt for everything.
