Real Madrid fans choose whom to blame for Real Madrid’s poor seasonPosted By: Sourav Das | January 27, 2018
Real Madrid fans choose whom to blame and have pointed the finger at Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo over the club’s poor run of form. Only six months ago, Real Madrid was seen lifting the two prestigious titles of Champions League and La Liga. And now, the defending La Liga champions sit in the 4th place on the table, 19 points behind table toppers Barcelona. They have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey in the match against Leganes, and their only hope now of redeeming themselves is by winning the Champions League title, as promised by Ronaldo, who himself has not been having a good season, with only 18 goals so far.

In this situation, fans have given Benzema a staggering 92% of down votes, while Ronaldo has received 77% of the negative votes. Ronaldo’s contribution to the team has not been too great. He sat out of the match in which Real Madrid lost to Leganes. His last appearance was against Deportivo La Coruna, in which he scored two goals, and received a massive face injury after being hit near the eyes with the cleats of an opponent’s player. He is expected to appear in the match against Valencia on Saturday.
In this situation, team manager Zinedine Zidane is under immense pressure to see the team win. As the coach of the Spanish club which has been struggling to keep its place on the table, he has been in the face of several questions in this regard. He has himself admitted in one of the recent interviews that there is no point in asking him repeatedly about the condition of Real Madrid in La Liga, and that the team is not likely to win in the series this time.
The one player who seems to have won the hearts of the fans is Gareth Bale. Ever since he has returned from his injury, he has been in good form, and he has received 69% of the positive votes. He has only been beaten by Luka Modric, Nacho and Dani Carvajal.
