Real Madrid has spent nearly the entire season chasing both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the table. Though catching Barcelona looks impossible, the four-point gap behind Atletico can be made up.
Things definitely changed after Sergio Ramos was sent off, but fans should be focusing on how the game was going before the red card. Real Madrid was in total control and looked like the same team from last year.
If we are now seeing the true form of Real Madrid, Atletico better watch out.
Los Blancos certainly have the depth and ability to surpass their rivals in the table. If Mourinho can get all of his players back to their best, everyone should expect Real Madrid to finish second in La Liga.
The football world would be turned upside down if the duopoly in Spain was tampered with. Even more astonishing would be to see this Real Madrid squad finish outside of the top two.
With things starting to look up for Real Madrid, the chase for second place is officially on.
