Real Madrid assembly should highlight the club's democracy but likely won't

After signing a new contract with Real Madrid, Luka Modric says it's time he finally wins La Liga with the club.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez rarely misses a chance to talk in public about how his own role is solely to be the guardian of an institution that is owned and controlled by its members. Just last week, at the announcement of some court-mandated changes to a €400 million project to redevelop Madrid's Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Perez once again stressed that Madrid's socios made the important decisions at the club.

"Our club has some everlasting values," Perez told the assembled...

Zidane can't ignore Real Madrid's lack of balance with tougher times ahead

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane says his side played in an especially attacking style in their 5-1 win.
The ESPN FC crew debate whether a 5-1 win over Legia Warsaw in the Champions League is sign of better things to come for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid conceded just two goals in their first 11 official matches in 2014-15. At the same point this campaign, that number has risen to 13, or more than one per game.

Not that any Real Madrid fan wants to go back to the Rafa Benitez regime by any stretch of the imagination, but those numbers indeed show that there is something off in the way Zinedine Zidane's team have defended since the season started.

Some reasons behind the numbers are easy to identify: Sergio Ramos' poor form has led to...

Cristiano Ronaldo's Lamborghini photo brings out the Photoshop fun

Cristiano Ronaldo's latest Instagram pose sends Twitter in a frenzy, and Hugo Lloris is part octopus in The Sweeper.

Prone to the ridiculous from time to time, it's little wonder that Cristiano Ronaldo finds himself the subject of social media fun on such a regular basis.

Indeed, the Real Madrid superstar took to Instagram to wish his followers a good day, but crucially made the mistake of doing so while standing next to his Lamborghini and adopting one of his strange, overly rigid poses.

Bom dia ��

Marco Asensio proves he's more than a squad player as Real run rampant

Real Madrid are now unbeaten in 23 matches in all competitions, after a convincing 5-1 win over Legia Warsaw.
Real Madrid's Marco Asensio has now scored in his competitive Real Madrid debut, his La Liga debut and his UCL debut.

Real Madrid recorded a 5-1 victory over Legia Warsaw in the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu courtesy of goals from Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez and Alvaro Morata -- plus a Tomasz Jodlowiec own goal. Miroslav Radovic denied Zinedine Zidane's side a clean sheet from the spot, and although the result was rarely in doubt, Jacek Magiera's men came out swinging and might have taken the lead when Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe rattled the post in the 12th minute.
