Can Real Make that 8 Point Gap Up?

Can Real Make that 8 Point Gap Up?

In beating Las Palmas, Real Madrid moved up to third place, level on points with Atletico Madrid but Real Madrid have a better goal difference.

However, Real Madrid are some eight points adrift of the La Liga leaders, Barcelona.

That eight points is a huge gap to make up if Real Madrid are to make a successful defence of the La Liga trophy they won last season (2016 / 2017).

In fact, it could be said that Real Madrid, this early in the season, are looking for 'Lady Luck` to assist them.

Even if Real Madrid were to beat Barcelona in the brace of El Classico` fixtures the possibility exists that to catch Barcelona, Zinedine Zidane`s side may have to go the remainder of this season unbeaten.

If Real Madrid were to draw another La Liga fixture, the gap between ourselves and Barcelona could become insurmountable if Ernesto Valverde`s side continue in the form they`ve shown already this season whereby they`ve remained unbeaten in all competitions.

But, as we all know, football is renowned for its unpredictable twists and turns, for all we know, come the turn of the year and presuming Real Madrid win the first of the 'El Classico` fixtures on December 23, we could be looking at a whole new ball-game.

Let`s hope so!
