Real Madrid begins its Champions League knock-out rounds campaign this week.  Real has failed to make it out of the round of 16 each of the past seven seasons.  Were this any other club or if they had any other coach, the goal would just be to move past the round of 16. 

But this is Real Madrid.  The nine-time European Champions are not content with improvement.  They expect perfection, and anything less than a championship is considered a failure. 

Additionally, they have Jose Mourinho at the helm.  He expects perfection and the Madrid ownership brought him to the club to win the title, not just improve on past results. 

With the expectations incredibly high, the question is whether Real can actually live up to the expectations and make a legitimate run and win the title. 

Last year Mourinho was able to take the players and talent on Inter and win the Champions League.  Let's look at last year's championship team and compare it with Real's present team to see if Mourinho has a better or worse group of players this season.
