Real Madrid won La Liga last year under the magnificent management of master tactician Jose Mourinho, bringing halt to the domestic dominance of Los Blancos’ bitter rivals Barcelona.
Prior to Madrid’s triumph in the previous season, the Catalan giants had won the league three times on the trot, leaving the Madrid part of Spain wondering that would there be any end to the global dominance of their fiercest rivals.
Mourinho inspired his side to lift the glorious crown of La Liga and that too in a record manner. The Bernabeu based outfit won the league with record points on the table at the end of the domestic season.
If supporters thought that it was going to be the start of dominance of Los Blancos at domestic level, they were fooled as Barcelona broke all the previous league records in regard to the best start to a season and soon found them well set for reclaiming the crown that did not end up at Camp Nou last year.
Barcelona’s prolificacy, coupled with Madrid’s slow start to the season meant that the Spanish powerhouse were not on competing terms in the league and despite having a better say in terms of the head to head record for the season, Madrid still trailed Barcelona in the league by a massive number of points, that is 13, to this date.
With games running out in La Liga, Madrid attacker Alvaro Morata believes that the Spanish champions will fight till the very end and will do all that is in their hands to restrict Barcelona from being run-away champions.
He said: "The team are in pretty good shape now. We've recovered some ground in la Liga.
"We know it will be complicated to win the league, but we're Real Madrid and we're going to keep fighting until it's over."
