Los Blancos' season - and the future of numerous group's individuals - will now be defined by their Champions League campaign, which will be renewed in less than two weeks with the first leg of the mouth-watering last sixteen tie with Paris Saint-Germain.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will be the key figures in turning the second half of Real Madrid's season around, according to head coach Zinedine Zidane. This weekend they need three points, but they also need to get that swagger back.
"We must be aware of what [Zinedine] Zidane does in the Champions League". I think my players always remain dedicated and driven.
Sergio Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldo and Isco were all able to join in with Real's final training session of the week.

Isco's goal from Karim Benzema's pass with nine minutes left appeared to have rescued Madrid, but Zidane's men fatally switched off at the back, Pazzini beating Navas with an effort that was too powerful for the goalkeeper to keep out.
Levante have gone five games without a win in all competitions and it will take one of the shocks of the season to prevent that from becoming six. We know that we have games to come before that, we must recover our confidence and continue in this manner.
"You can never say never in football", commented the Madrid coach, who preferred to look at his side' s recent recovery with a 7-1 win at home to Deportivo la Coruna a fortnight ago and a 4-1 victory away to Valencia last weekend. "Escpecially on the chance that they had". "We can not put three or four results together".
Asked if he thought his job was on the line in the looming Champions League last-16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain, the former galactico answered shortly: "I just think about the next game, nothing else". We have to be positive and, in the end, I don't look at the past.
