Real Madrid play their particular final this Wednesday. It’s not necessary to be in Berlin to face a life-or-death match. They can win and breathe or be knocked out and start an important destroying process. This Wednesday against Juve there is there’s more than a Champions League game. There’s more than a season at stake. The future of Madrid will be determined depending on whether they can come back Turin’s 2-1.

A year ago we talked about the savior goal of Sergio Ramos in Lisbon. In the 93th minute he avoided losing the Champions League final and avoided a historic earthquake. But the earth did not move and they managed to brace it with La Décima. 12 months later, the wedges that were hindering the movement are no longer there. And if Juve eliminate them, everything will tremble again.

R. Madrid are working to create positive come-back atmosphere for this Wednesday.

That's why the club is already working to create positive come-back atmosphere for this Wednesday. They need TV debates to ignore La Liga, to talk about a possible elimination of Guardiola and especially to heat up the environment of a possible Barça-Madrid UCL final.

It will be positive for them to find covers that evoke the daily courage of the team and that allow the excitement overcome the terrible disappointment in La Liga. Instead of remembering that Madrid has only won one of the last seven Ligas, they will find that the Undécima is only in two matches left.

Real Madrid is anesthetized regarding the almost loss of La Liga. They don’t think about that, they don’t want to remember it. They still have a chance in the Champions League. Despite Bale complaining and Casillas sending the crowd packing. Despite Ancelotti hanging by a thread and Cristiano starting to irritate his fans... This Wednesday’s final will keep them busy. And if this Thursday morning they get up out of UCL instead of with a ticket to Berlin, then, yes: the most important devastation in recent years will take over Madrid.
