maicon forced him to swap wings at the bernabeu. it's hardly impossible (maicon was off the pitch when he scored)
it all depends what madrid turn up. if the frustrated, annoyed, not wanting to play for the losing control one madrid turn up, it could be an absolute spanking. if the madrid that we're all expecting to turn up play, it'll be purely who concedes less goals.
i don't think they'll drop out of the top 4 however. malaga/betis/rayo/valencia don't have the quality to sustain it. atletico have also been shown up when they don't have falcao playing. even if those immediately behind madrid win the games in hand, they're still ahead. atletico winning both theirs however would put them 10 points clear.
