Real Madrid have had an inconsistent season in the Spanish top flight LaLiga this season. They have been defeated too many times by teams they should be beating with ease in La Liga 2018-19.

The injuries have had a major impact on the performances of the club as they have had some key players out with injuries at crucial stages of the season. They have already sacked their manager Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari hasn't been able to motivate them much either.

They are currently placed at 5th in La Liga 2018-19 points table and are 10 points behind league leaders Barcelona. Real Madrid will have to hope Barcelona loses their form at some point of the season so that Madrid can climb up the ladder.

All the other clubs placed above Madrid in the points table should also drop points at regular intervals of time. Real Madrid will also have to ensure they don't drop any points from now on and will have to be almost perfect in order to have any chance of winning La Liga this season.

There are huge expectations from the Real Madrid players before every season and some of the players have not been able to perform at the level they are expected to perform at. We will look at three players who can lead this club back to the top this season.

#1 Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale is one of the deadliest forwards in the world, but injuries throughout his career, especially at Real Madrid, has stopped him from playing at an elite level consistently.

Gareth Bale was seen as the most suitable replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo after Madrid announced that the 5 times Balon d'Or winner was going to leave Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid did not sign any replacement for Ronaldo and as a result, everyone was waiting to see if Bale could replace Ronaldo in Madrid.

He has been a disappointment as he has scored just four goals and assisted another two in his 15 outings in LaLiga this season. He has been injured since the game against Villarreal and Madrid have lost points regularly during his absence.

If he doesn't come back soon and score goals at regular periods of time in the ongoing season, Madrid's chances of winning LaLiga this season will start looking impossible very quickly.
