4 Reasons why Real Madrid will go trophyless this season
By the end of May 2018, Spanish giants, Real Madrid were feeling on top of the world. Los Blancos just defended the UEFA Champions League once again and became the first side in history to claim the European crown in three consecutive seasons - receiving a lot of praises from football fans and pundits alike for their incredible exploits.
However, fast forward eight months from that time and everything has gone abysmally. Once undisputed kings of Europe, Los Blancos have fallen from grace to grass and they now look like a mere shadow of the team which conquered the continental crown a few months ago.
Regardless of their status, it is quite evident that Real Madrid are not ready to compete for anything this season. As a matter of fact, considering how poor they have been of late, it doesn't look like the Spanish giants will get out of that mess anytime soon and the idea of winning a trophy is clearly out of their reach this season due to the following reasons.
#4 Poor performances
To be sincere, Real Madrid do not look like a team that could win any trophy this season as Los Blancos have been mere shadows of themselves since the beginning of the campaign, and that is quite undeniable given that their performances have been really poor so far.
The Spanish giants are currently 5th on the La Liga table, 10 points behind leaders FC Barcelona, having won 9 drawn 3 and lost 6 of their 18 games in the Spanish top flight this season. Although they managed to progress into the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League, their performances during the group stage of the tournament weren't very impressive as they were badly exposed by CSKA Moscow.
Performances on the pitch remain the best way by which teams prove themselves as trophy contenders. But judging with Real Madrid's displays so far, it is clear that the Spanish giants have not made any statement that suggests they are ready to fight for any prize this season.
