The early form in La Liga suggested that there could be numerous teams in the title race this season, but it’s starting to look like Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will be the main contenders.
Diego Simeone’s men should fancy their chances due to their games in hand, so it leaves Real Madrid in a position where they need to keep winning to maintain that pressure.
They’ve started quickly against Eibar tonight, so these goals from Modric and Benzema could be enough to make this a formality already:

Zidane’s undoing at Real Madrid will come when the veterans are no longer able to play at the top level, but it actually looks like some of them are getting better with age rather than regressing.
