Real Madrid – 5 things that come to mind
Another one from the mind series. The first two were the two best players in the world and now I move to clubs—and what better club to start with than Real Madrid?
The Galacticos are the reigning European and World champions. They beat Juventus to win the Champions League last season and recently beat Gremio to lift the Club World Cup. Oh, and they also overcame Barca to win the league last season.
With their Club World Cup glory, they became the most successful club in the world with the most number of recognised titles, which puts them on the way to become the best club of even this century.
Here are the 5 things that come to mind when thinking of Real Madrid...
#5 Champions League specialists
Yep, this is definitely the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Real Madrid—and why wouldn’t it be? They are the kings of the Champions League. Winning the first five editions of the competition in a row—becoming the first club to ever win back-to-back European Cups—the Blancos set the tone for the future.
There have been droughts, quite a few of them, but the Spanish giants still have this competition in their grip. With 12 titles under their best, they are, by far, the most successful club in the competition with AC Milan their nearest rival with 7 titles—which is still 5 less.
And this is all despite having two major droughts: one from 1966 to 1998 and the other from 2002 to 2014. However, when they win it, they win many all at once—three Champions League titles in the last 4 seasons is a testament to that.
