The Cup as a turning point, as a fix for all the ills of late.

That lost paradise aims to reconquer a suddenly hesitant Real Madrid, dislodged by its attacks against Barça, for this exhausting winter.

But, to begin with, more doubts, a good hot flash in the quarterfinals against the modest Río Breogán, who was about to star in a feat.

[73-67: Narration and statistics]
