"Are things more complicated with a draw? Yes".

"However, we have to be calm and use good sense".

"I don't need anyone". "Yes, I am exhausted of this, but I won't change it and I don't want to change it". We take a look at the top five factors which have contributed to Madrid's poor showing this season.

However, he has endured a tough season with his side now 16 points behind Barcelona in Spain's LaLiga. 'I think Thibaut first. We need to find that positive energy among the group and keep moving forward.
