December was a triumphant month for Real Madrid, who won every game in the Champions League and La Liga. The game against Sevilla which must be played on December 20th has been postponed to allow the Real Madrid prepare the FIFA Club World Cup 2014. Once this competition ended Real Madrid will go on vacation and will not play any games until next January 4th against Valencia at Mestalla Stadium.
All those victories in La Liga place Real Madrid as the favorite to be crowned with the Spanish title this year. After winning over Celta, by three goals to zero, the Real Madrid is positioned as a leader in the Spanish Premier League with 39 points –four points over its closest rival Barcelona F.C. and 7 points above Atletico Madrid in the third-placed of the leaderboard.

With the exception of the Valencia team, which is ranked fifth in La Liga leaderboard, all other teams occupy lower positions (Getafe is 13th with 16 points, Cordoba is 17th with 11 points and Real Sociedad is 14th with 14 points).
