The Real Madrid can give with a singing in the teeth after having remained first in the phase of groups of the Champions League in spite of having been tremendously irregular, with parties in which it did the ridiculous. It is the advantage of not having qedado matched with any club of big entity: the whites took advantage of the little continuity of his rivals and, in a carambola final, classified like first.

The stage that will have the Real Madrid in the draw of eighth, unlike the that will have the FC Barcelona, will be much more plácido since esquivará to the tremendos heads of series: Bayern of Munich, Manchester City, Liverpool, Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

The Port wine carries a lot of years being also an uncomfortable team but without giving important surprises in front of clubs of greater entity.
