and determination, battling through adversity like the soldiers they have become, to grind out a second consecutive 1-0 win with a solid all-round performance (with some occasional bloopers as expected from soft Real Madrid heart (defense I mean).

Self Belief and confidence is slowly rising in Real Madrid players, but I don’t think they should now try to be “HAPPY” and play hollywood. No. Absolutely no.

I think we should still grind out results because we would need every bit of mental toughness in the coming weeks as the month of December begins which is usually the most difficult ones.

And that leads to me to wonder, do we have enough squqd depth?. I also happen to know theanswerand that is No we don’t.

Injuries keep on piling up and Schuster keeps on calling the same players to game after game which SHOULD take a toll on their physical and mental condition which CAN (can) prove to be critical once we face some of the big boys both in Europe and La Liga.

PREDICTION

My prediction is 0-2 for Real Madrid. I think Raul and Sniejder will score the two. Getafe are a rigid, stubborn side. They defend well and have always been very very physical in their style of play.

I think Real Madrid is going to have a tough time breaking their defence let alone getting behind them, we don’t have the pace to do that, so I think Real Madrid will barely get a single goal and then when Getafe will pour forward to get atleast a draw, Real Madrid will hit them on the break and score the second.
