After another prolonged absence from Merengue Bites, we decided to enjoy the victory against Atletico Madrid by finally taking the microphone for this month (or so we hope!) .

We discussed the Madrid derby, Real Madrid’s performance, individual performance and reflected on why things haven’t gone smooth sailing this season. Another key point, confirmed yesterday, was Real finishing second in UEFA Champions League group stages and what it could mean in the knockout stages.

So, without further ado, enjoy!
