Now it can be said with full mouth - Spanish football in crisis.

Last night's (Tuesday) loss of Atletico Madrid 1: 0 against Chelsea, was the third loss of a Spanish team after Barcelona's defeat against Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla's 3: 2 loss to Dortmund.

Tonight (22:00) Real Madrid will host the strong Atalanta in a very lacking squad and will try to be the first Spanish team not to lose in the first game of the quarterfinals.

If that does not happen, there is a good chance that no Spanish team will make it to the quarter-finals - something that has not happened in 16 years, since the 2004/05 season.

That season Real Madrid and Barcelona were eliminated in the quarter-finals while Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna did not even make it to the home stage.

The last time it happened by the way, was somewhere in 1993.



The retreat in the ability of the Spaniards is a process that did not begin this season, but long before.

The previous season was also a failure for the Spaniards.

Barcelona snatched from Bayern Munich an unforgettable 8: 2 and Atletico Madrid were surprisingly eliminated in the quarter-finals by Leipzig.

Real Madrid have lost twice in the home leg this season to Solomon's Shakhtar and last season were relegated unconditionally with a double loss to Manchester City.

By the way, at Barcelona this has been a regular symptom in recent years and the defeat against Bayern Munich joined the embarrassing relegation against Liverpool the season before, Rome and other glorious failures.



Joe Cole, a former England international and now a commentator on English television, commented on the bad performances of the Spanish and said: "If these are the best teams that Spanish football has to offer, then he is in big trouble."

Will Real Madrid actually save the honor of Spanish football?

With Zidane on the lines it is certainly possible.
