Real Madrid are struggling in League this season

With 33 La Liga titles and 12 European cups, Real Madrid are one of the most successful clubs in the world of football. They won both the Champions League and La Liga last season, and also beat Manchester United to win the UEFA Super Cup.

Real Madrid are doing great in the Champions League, however, the team's form in the La Liga is concerning and they are currently behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Despite a star-studded first team, the team hasn't clicked in the domestic competitions so far, so Zidane needs to iron out the issues.

Without much ado, here is a look at the five problems that Real Madrid needs to fix in order to win the La Liga title next season.

#5 Fix the goalkeeping issue

Keylor Navas has failed to provide the same consistency as Iker Casillas

Goalkeeping is a major concern for Real Madrid ever since Iker Casillas departed the club. They have signed Kiko Casilla and Keylor Navas to replace the former Spanish international, but both failed to provide the same level of consistency that Casillas provided.

While Navas has had a stellar campaign last time, the consistency has been missing this season. Casilla, on the other hand, hasn't been able to make the most of his chances in the Cup competitions. Moreover, both of them are already in their early 30s which is a clear indication that Madrid must sign a world-class goalkeeper who can be a long-term solution.

Real Madrid tried to sign David de Gea in the past but his current employers were reluctant to sell him.

But with transfer window re-opening soon, they should make another approach. The likes of Thibaut Courtois and Kepa Arrizabalaga are also pretty good backups.
