It is indeed a shame, they're my favorite team after Real. They were very unlucky with long-term injuries to their most important players. They couldn't catch a break all season, and it messed the team's mentality. I'm sure they'll bounce back, though. They have one of the best youth academies in the country and they have good, level-headed management. They'll have to sell most of their top players, so I'm sure many teams in Europe will be happy about their relegation.
