Real Madrid has been on a downhill for the last few months. They started the 2022-23 season well but have now been a mere shadow of themselves. Real Madrid has now lost to Mallorca by a 1-0 scoreline. Marco Asensio missed a penalty as Los Blancos now give Barcelona a chance to go 8 points ahead at the top of the La Liga table. It seems as if Madrid are giving up the title race. The playing attitude is also a significant concern for the team.
Los Blancos wanted to bring Mbappe to the Bernabeu but failed in his pursuit and decided against signing any other attacker. This has now come back to hurt them.
Karim Benzema hasn’t been 100% this season and has missed some games. During his absence, Rodrygo has taken up his place but hasn’t been able to fill in the big boots of the Frenchman. Madrid badly needed a good backup striker along with a fullback.
Camavinga, originally a midfielder, is being forced to play at left-back and even then he has been Madrid’s best LB. This clearly shows the lack of depth in this current squad.
