Jose Mourinho has admitted that Real Madrid will need a miracle if they are to retain the Spanish Primera Liga title this season. The champions have already dropped more points than they did in the whole of the last campaign, while Barcelona have enjoyed a record breaking start to their season.
Real Madrid should have won yesterday, there is no question of that. They should probably have had at least one penalty, but they had plenty of chances to wrap the game up anyway. The failure to do so meant that we dropped deeper and deeper as the game came to it’s conclusion, and Espanyol managed to force the ball into the net with just a minute left on the clock.
