Real Madrid face a crucial week in LaLiga and the Champions League, with crunch clashes against Bayern Munich and Barcelona coming up.
Bayern return followed by El Clásico
On Tuesday, Zinedine Zidane's men take a 2-1 lead into their quarter-final second leg at home to Bayern in Europe's premier club competition.
And on Sunday, they host arch rivals Barcelona in an 'El Clásico' that will go a long way towards deciding the outcome of the LaLiga title race.
The squad are all too aware of the significance of the coming seven days: their fate is in their hands as they seek domestic and continental glory.
That's why key dressing-room figures have been swift to take to social media with statements designed to instil optimism in team and fans alike.
Cristiano Ronaldo: "Winners"
On Sunday afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo published a post-training photo alongside five Madrid colleagues with the caption: "Winners".
The post primarily refers to the fact that the players in the photgraph - CR7, Mariano Díaz, Luka Modric, Rubén Yañez, Casemiro and Dani Carvajal - were the victorious team in a round of mini-matches in Los Blancos' latest session at Valdebebas.
However, it may also be viewed as a warning shot to Real's forthcoming rivals.
Sergio Ramos: "2 days to go"
Meanwhile, club captain Sergio Ramos made it clear that he's champing at the bit, writing: "Defending this badge in Europe. 2 days to go. Hala Madrid."
