Real Madrid have quite a different scenario from last season. This time around, Barcelona is looking up to Los Blancos, who have a four-point lead in Spain's La Liga. Real Madrid at one point did have a 12-point lead of the league and seemed to be in total control, but after a string of bad results, they find themselves in a tough situation.
Although Real Madrid are overdue for a title win, Jose Mourinho and company have a tough six games ahead of them.
We all are ready for the upcoming El Clasico match on April 21st, which we can consider a toss-up regarding who wins the game at Camp Nou. Barcelona have been extremely successful in beating Real Madrid in the passed few seasons, but even if they do that now, they still would be one point behind.
Real Madrid will need to be near flawlessly perfect to keep Barcelona off their backs in the other remaining games of the season.
Los Blancos' schedule looks like this:
Home vs. Sporting de Gijon
Away @ Barcelona
Home vs. Sevilla
Away @ Athletic Bilbao
Home vs. Mallorca
