Real Madrid fans surely don’t think of having such a great season at the start of last September, however, they’ve shown that they called Royal Madrid for a reason. Time and again dark shadows come over the Los Blancos squad and their legendary coach Carlo Ancelotti even had to face questions about the insecurity of his job. Nevertheless, the manager and the players prove everyone wrong with their tremendous display throughout the season.
They’ve already secured their 35th La Liga title with a healthy margin and are undoubtedly the dominant side in Spain all over the season. In the continent event, they showed their supremacy, their elite mentality of never giving up, and made everyone understand why they were the greatest team in this tournament. They could eliminate from the RO16 after an away defeat to Paris St Germain. They even conceded 1 at their home ground too but a magnificent cameo of the best player of this season, Karim Benzema who produced a hat trick to secure the comeback confirmed that the club of the capital of Spain would go further, not the club of the capital of France.
Almost the same story followed in the quarterfinal and in the semi-final too where the Madrid-based club overcame defending champions Chelsea and might be the best team in Europe Man City. They’ll look forward to winning the next match putting the last stroke of the brush is a fine way to end the historical season more memorably.
Jurgen Klopp said that this Allred team is the best amongst all, which he managed so far in his career and they were there to win a quadruple, a fate that has never been done by any other English club. They couldn’t achieve that either as they fall 1 point short of the supremely talented Manchester city team of Pep Guardiola. But they won the League Cup and the FA Cup already. They’re the runners-up of the EPL and at this moment they’re warming up in Paris to play the last of the season.
They aim to win the Champions League for the 7th time to sit beside AC Milan to be the 2nd best club in the history of this glorious competition. Inter Milan scared them in the path as they won a match at Anfield, the fortress of LFC. Unai Emery’s side did their best to stop the Mersey side club. But all went in vain as Klopp’s ruthless side make it into another UCL final. 3rd time under the German’s stewardship. Although They failed to win the quadruple, they can still win three trophies to make this season an unforgettable one.
