Five reasons why Real Madrid may fail to win the league this season
#4 Poor attack
While there might be a lot of players for Madrid in midfield, what can’t be denied is the lack of quality forwards in the side. Cristiano Ronaldo remains the only consistent attacker in the team. Both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have not been at their best and are yet to open their account this season despite playing in three pre-season and two official games.
Alvaro Morata scored 20 goals for the Galactico side last term, but he is no longer at the club. Meanwhile, the onus on Marco Asensio to score has increased, but we can't really expect a midfielder to replace the 20 goals that the Chelsea forward scored last season.
The only other forward in the team is Borja Mayoral, but the 20-year-old doesn’t look good enough to make the step up just yet. For all the talent that he might have, the fact is that he had a poor loan outing at Wolfsburg last term and it would be a risk to rely on him as the backup striker.
