Real Madrid is having a nightmare season. Everything looked different in the beginning of the season, when they hammered Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup. Nobody would have guessed that Real will be 19 points behind Barcelona in the middle of the season. A few days ago, Leganes shocked them on Santiago Bernabeu, and eliminated them from Spanish Cup. Also, there are numerous reports that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane are arguing over the future of the team. Zidane might departure in the summer and that can affect the performances of the team until the end of the season.
