Real Madrid have narrowed the gap between themselves and Barcelona to a sliver – one point.
The Zidane effect has given Real Madrid a whole new sense of self belief and purpose and they are surging ahead even as Barcelona seem to be going the other way.
Eliminated from the Champion’s league,losing the El Clasico and looking very much like a team that are going to falter at the last hurdle.
They have the league and the King’s Cup left to defend and they are looking shaky at best.
Karim Benzema, Isco, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo got the goals in the 5 -1 win over lowly Getafe.
