It was not their best night of the season, but Thursday night was a night where Real Madrid can look back- if they win La Liga’s title- and say this was the kind of night where champions are made. They faced off with Getafe, one of the most frustrating and difficult teams in Spain, and came out of it with a 1-0 victory thanks to a Sergio Ramos penalty with 11 minutes remaining.
Real now have a four-point gap over Barcelona with five games left, giving them an excellent shot at hoisting the trophy. As for Barcelona, reports out of the Catalan city suggest that star attacker Lionel Messi is done with the club. The club, in truth, have been in free fall for some time now, and Messi is, apparently, sick of it. It’s being said he does not want to talk about staying past 2021, so we could finally see Messi in colors besides the blue and red of Barcelona.
