Madrid only won once the first game they played after returning from the tournament since it was played with the new format


No time to sleep in La Liga

Forbidden to fall asleep Neither the situation in the classification nor the precedents when Madrid has returned to the domestic competition after winning the Club World Cup allow them to relax tonight against Elche . Ancelotti’s team needs to win to restore the distance with Barcelona to eight points and history gives him a warning: the game after the World Cup usually chokes Madrid.


Returning to the old format

Since it was disputed with the current format, the hangover of the world title is heavy for Madrid. The balance when he returns from the World Cup is one win, one draw and two losses . They managed to beat Sevilla 3-0 (in the first leg of the Cup round of 16) after winning the 2016 World Cup. But when they returned from 2018 they tied in Vila-real. The return of the other two World Cups was bitter. In 2014-15 he lost to Valencia (2-1) upon returning from Morocco and the Christmas break. That defeat at Mestalla ruined the season for Ancelotti’s men. He ended a streak of 22 victories in a row and the team ended up losing the League. In 2017-18 I was expecting a Clásico and Barça stormed the Bernabéu (0-3).
