It doesn’t take a genius to see the change that Jose Mourinho has brought to the Real Madrid and even star player Ronaldo knows that Los Blanco’s now have a better chance at winning with the Portuguese coach taking over, “With him [Mourinho] we have more chances to win.” Said Cristiano in a recent interview with Marc TV.
“Mourinho’s arrival has changed everything. The coach is very good and he has brought his experience to Real Madrid. With him we have more chances to win. Of course, our objective is the Champions League, [for] a Real Madrid player must always think that is possible. I am convinced this year will be different.”
With Real Madrid looking to take on Atletico Madrid on Sunday at 3:00 pm E.T. (USA), Ronaldo knows that this is an important game for both sides. As Real Madrid will be looking to keep their unbeaten streak rolling, Atletico Madrid is looking to pull the upset at the Bernabeu.
“A derby is more than just a game. We know it is important for both teams in the city, but we do not need to prepare differently. We know it will be a difficult game, but we are at home and Atletico need to win.” Ronaldo went on to say in regards to Sundays match.
Who do I see coming on-top in Sundays match?
I have to go with Real Madrid in this one. As the club looking pretty much unstoppable and with Ronaldo riding a hot-streak of scoring 13 goals for the month of October, Los Blancos are not looking like they will be slowing down anytime soon. If Ronaldo can continue his impressive showing and Benzema continuing to find his role within the team, it will be difficult for Atletico Madrid to put a stop toward their run.
Who do you think will win this Sunday’s Derby clash? Can you see Real Madrid making a good run in the UEFA Champions League, even possibly winning it all? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
