Real madrid missed another opportunity yesterday after the champions were held to 0-0 by the Athletic Club, despite them dominating the match and they failed to capitalise on Barcelona’s draw against Celta Vigo.
Barcelona’s second successive draw in La Liga meant Los Blancos could close the gap to six points by beating Athletic Club yesterday but unfortunately they went home with a draw.
Last weekend Madrid needed a penalty to beat Malaga at home, with Ronaldo netting on the rebound after his spot kick had been saved by the goalkeeper, and there is a feeling that Madrid are not finishing teams off at the moment.
Madrid performance is not good enough this season, a team aspiring to be champions and although there is going to be a classico clash on December 23 at Bernabeu. Even a win will only reduce the deficit to five points as things stand. I hope they wont miss their chance this time around.
