Real Madrid just 11 games from doing the double

16 Apr 2021

After their Champions League quarter-final win over LiverpoolLos Blancos have just eleven games left to secure their two most cherished trophies – LaLiga Santander and the European Cup.

And despite Zinedine Zidane‘s squad being hit by exhaustion and an injury crisis, the possible prizes that could be theirs in just 44 days should serve to motivate them more than ever.

The past week has been the key to getting their double hopes going again.

The Clasico win over Barcelona was sandwiched by two excellent performances against Liverpool to progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

But the coming weeks are nonetheless unrelenting.

In the remainder of April Los Merengues will face Getafe, Cadiz and Real Betis in the league, as well as hosting Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in the Champions League at the end of the month.

In May they will welcome Osasuna to the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, before travelling to London for their second-leg tie with the Blues.

Then Real Madrid will be on the home straight in the league, with matches against Sevilla, Granada, Athletic Club and Villarreal.

If they see off Chelsea, then the small matter of a Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester City will await.

Since losing to Levante in the league on January 30, Zidane has led his men to 11 wins and three draws, in so doing reducing the deficit to leaders Atletico Madrid to just one point.

Real Madrid have also been unbeaten in Europe since then, and they will surely now have their eyes on ending their season with a record-extending 14th European Cup.
