It can happen that – following the end of such an incredible streak as it was to be 40 games undefeated (winning the Champions League, SuperCup and World Club Cup in the process), you suffer a little slump. I'm talking about the mind.
With the streak there was a target in each match; playing with the tension and necessary mentality to continue undefeated can make you feel unstoppable. Now is the perfect time to assess exactly what has been achieved and, above all, ensure that doubts don’t creep in.
Need for belief
This team has demonstrated character, competitiveness, champion spirit and great football. It is time for Zidane to reassure all his players and make them believe again. Believe first in a comeback in the 2nd leg at Celta, and then believe that you can win all the titles on offer this season. This team has all credit and quality to do it.
