The injury-hit La Liga champions are somehow managing to get results, and will now aim to keep up the pressure on their noisy neighbors.
After getting a crucial away win in the Champions League last-16 first-leg tie against Atalanta, Real Madrid now prepare to resume the defense of their La Liga crown.
A clash of the royals awaits as the titleholders take on Real Sociedad at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Monday night.
Los Blancos sit third in the league standings, six points behind leaders Atletico Madrid while La Reales currently occupy fifth place, seven points off fourth-placed Sevilla.

The hosts are on a four-match winning streak across all competitions, with Wednesday’s 1-0 result against Atalanta being their latest success.
In the league, they narrowly beat Real Valladolid last time out with Casemiro scoring the sole goal at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla.
The visitors, meanwhile, are also on good form as they carry a run of three successive wins in La Liga and have lost just once in their last six outings in all competitions.
Most recently, Imanol Alguacil’s side were held to a goalless draw against Manchester United in the second leg of their Europa League last-32 contest.
