Real Madrid need Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema to get back to their best

Our panel examine Real Madrid's lead over its archrivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

Gareth Bale hit the nail on the head following Real Madrid's 4-2 friendly defeat against AC Milan in December when he said "sometimes when you go on a winning run you can get a bit complacent."

The Welshman went on to add that he and his teammates were "determined and 100 percent focused to win every game" as they prepared to return from the winter break on the back of a Spanish record 22-match winning run in competitive matches. Nothing seemed likely to stop a Madrid juggernaut that had been firing...

The upcoming fixture calendar has been kind to Real Madrid, as they prepare to face a Villarreal side not-so-fresh from Europa League action.

Future opponents Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona also both will have played midweek matches before meeting a rested Madrid in the league.

Athletic face Espanyol in the Copa del Rey semifinals on Wednesday before welcoming Real to San Mames three days later, while Real don't face Schalke until March 10 with Levante at home on March 15.

Meanwhile, Barca play Man...

Modric return could see Ancelotti deploy 4-2-3-1 formation at Real

Our panel examine Real Madrid's lead over its archrivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

Good news leaps immediately to mind when reports suggest that Luka Modric may be in with an outside chance of making the Real Madrid squad against Villarreal. Obviously the Croatia midfielder isn't going to start, but the fact that manager Carlo Ancelotti is considering including him in the list on Sunday is, on the face of it, good news for Real Madrid.

If Modric is named -- the midfielder has been out for over three months, 22 games in total -- it would be purely to give him a whiff of the...

Isco's rise complicates Ancelotti's starting lineup at Real Madrid

The ESPN FC crew weigh in on the possibility of players striking in MLS, the role of Isco at Real Madrid and their preference between Rakitic and Fabregas.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti praises his team's defensive improvements following their 2-nil victory over Elche.

There's a saying in Spain that footballers can "reparte los caramelos", or hand out the sweets. It's a saying that relates to Three Kings Day, when Christmas presents are traditionally handed out to children on Jan. 6 and where sweets are dished out in abundance at public festivals and parades up and down the country.

In footballing terms, players who can "reparte los caramelos" are players that provide luxuries. They treat their teammates, through clever passes and assists,...

Isco's Real Madrid rise a good lesson for frustrated Jese

The ESPN FC crew weigh in on the possibility of players striking in MLS, the role of Isco at Real Madrid and their preference between Rakitic and Fabregas.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti praises his team's defensive improvements following their 2-nil victory over Elche.

The jury is back in the room, and the verdict is unanimous: Isco is a Real Madrid heavyweight. The fans, the coaching staff and his teammates are running out of adjectives to describe the midfielder, who receives ovations at opposition stadiums. The ball has always bent to his will and now he has his manager firmly onside as well: Carlo Ancelotti stated recently that Isco is a key member of his first 11. Even the return to fitness of Luka Modric shouldn't unduly concern Isco, who through hard work...
