Madrid has picked up just five points from their opening three games, one more than the champions, Barcelona. But, Zinedine Zidane’s side are four points behind the early leaders, Atlético Madrid, who have won all three matches. Barcelona is likely to improve with the inclusion of Messi after he is fit to join the team again but questions arise what does Real Madrid need to do to become the side they used to be with Ronaldo. Bale scored last night after a drought of more than 160 days, Bale improving and coming up big is a good sign for the club but more is needed from other players like Isco, Modric, Kroos, Vazquez who seem to have gone into a slump.

Zidane criticized his side for their not so pleasant start but was pleased with how they reacted to going behind. He said the following in the post-match interview, “We began the game without a lot of intensity, we were barely in the game for the first 15 minutes, it’s always important to make a strong start,” he told a news conference. “But we reacted to the first goal well and we deserved to score more goals. We were up against a difficult opponent and we have to improve in defense because we know what we are capable of in attack. But I’m currently focusing on the positives from today’s match, above all our reaction, because it was very important that we didn’t lose today.”
