A blank year for Madrid?

Real Madrid face the last league game against Villarreal with the feeling that they can close a blank year for the first time since the 2009/2010 season. History does not play in its favor either in the pulse it maintains with Atlético de Madrid for the League, since the white team has never conquered the title reaching the last day in the second position of the classification and with options to be first according to the data of Pedro Martín (@pedritonumeros).

If Atlético win in Valladolid this Saturday, Real Madrid will not win any title and will put an end to a streak of ten consecutive years by lifting at least one official trophy throughout the season. On this occasion, he will not even be able to make up the disaster by winning the Spanish Super Cup or the Club World Cup, as happened in the 2012/2013 and 2019/2020 campaigns, respectively. In 2014/2015 he had to settle for the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup.

If the colchoneros meet Valladolid on the last day, Zinedine Zidane will close the season without having been able to lift any title for the first time in his five years at the helm of the Madrid team.


The cycle of Zidane will thus close in false. A bad project for a tough season marked by a very tight schedule. The injuries and the poor performance of players that were key explain to a large extent the discreet balance of the team throughout most of the course.

Real Madrid has paid for its football deficiencies above all, starting with the lack of punch exhibited. The great disappointment has been the Belgian Eden Hazard, who was destined to fill the gap that had been left vacant after the departure of Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo. Hazard gradually faded as a result of his continuous injuries and has ended up playing a completely testimonial role at the scorer level, as evidenced by the fact that he is about to close the season with three goals in the League and one in the Champions League.

The Madrid team has reached the final stretch exhausted, although it has survived in the League and has managed to keep the flame of hope alive until the last breath. This Saturday against Villarreal the entire season will be played in 90 minutes, although their problem is that everything will depend on what happens in Valladolid.
