Well that was a pretty short lived ‘crisis’ for Real Madrid wasn’t it? It just shows you, though, what great pressure there is on the manager and players of this great club, with the football media so willing to talk about a crisis just because Los Blancos drew a few games, even after Zinedine Zidane had steered Madrid to a record run of La Liga wins and another Champions League trophy.
Having said that, it is not just the football press but the fans of Real Madrid that puts this pressure on because of their huge expectations. Perhaps that is why Zidane is turning into such a good manager, because he also played at the Santiago Bernabeu and being one of the best players in the world he had to deal with expectation throughout his playing career.
There will certainly be a lot of expectation on the Frenchman and his team this week, as the Polish club Legia Warsaw will be the next visitors to the Bernabeu for the Champions League clash on Tuesday. Real are, of course, huge favourites for this match so if you want to have a bet on them it would be a good idea to look for some of the special offers available on various uk betting sites in order to make it worth your while.
Unless you are betting on the Polish team there is not a lot of value on this game, but with Real Madrid being only third favourites to win the competition and with us maintaining our place at the top of Spain’s La Liga with a thumping win at the weekend, perhaps a cheeky double might be the bet for fans of Real Madrid this year.
