Following their dissapointing exit from the champion`s league on Wednesday, Madrid need to get back on track and secure la liga. Everybody involved with the club has been suffering since the penalty shoot out loss to Bayern.
A win today would all but secure the title and if Barcelona then fail to beat Rayo Vallecano later then Madrid are crowned Spanish champion`s again. History shows that when Real have gone out of Europe then they have responded well in the league.
Real Madrid still have the chance of beating Guardiola`s record points tally. If they can win their last matches they will finish on a hundred points, one better than Barcelona`s ninety nine of 2009.
