Real Madrid have roared back to prominence in their last two La Liga matches. Motivated by the looming clash against French juggernaut Paris Saint-Germain, they lashed in 11 goals over the course of 180 minutes. It was the Real Madrid of old with Cristiano Ronaldo back among the goals and shooting accuracy worthy of their esteemed reputation. Rather embarrassingly, Madrid have failed to record a 50 percent success rate in their shots to goal ratio in 30 of their 37 games in all competitions this season. Deportivo and Valencia are statistical anomalies.

The short-term recovery can’t hide the fact that Madrid need to freshen up their attacking options and they’re expected to make an astronomical signing this summer. Harry Kane is reportedly a target, as is Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi. The most interesting links are with PSG forward Neymar. The former Barcelona star is said to be frustrated with Ligue 1 and seeking a move back to La Liga. It’s unlikely but Madrid will go all out to bring him in.

The pressure is on Zinedine Zidane to make sure the majority of Madrid stories concern their success on the pitch over the coming months. Mauricio Pochettino is being pushed into the frame as Zidane’s potential successor and the Spurs boss would find an offer hard to refuse. Zidane will try not to pay any mind to those stories and focus on the upcoming match at Levante. Their last win in La Liga came back in November.
