Here’s how 2020 went for Real Madrid

31 Dec 2020

Real Madrid’s 2020 has been packed full of emotions.

Some have been good, some have been bad, but the reality is that Los Blancos have lived through it all in the past 365 days. Madridistas have suffered, celebrated, been angry, and delighted almost in equal parts.

First of all, the Supercopa de Espana

The year didn’t start badly at all for Real Madrid. Los Blancos claimed the year’s first silverware in the form of the Supercopa de Espana.

After a memorable semi-final against Valencia, Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid on penalties, which they were only able to do because of a clever move by Fede Valverde against Alvaro Morata.

Even without Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema, Zinedine Zidane’s side claimed a big win.

Things went well from there, but the Champions League campaign turned sour with Sergio Ramos’ sending off against Manchester City, which saw Pep Guardiola’s side comeback to knock them out of Europe.

With COVID-19 on the horizon, Los Blancos beat Barcelona in the last match played at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, which put them ahead in LaLiga Santander.

The post-COVID conspiracy

After lockdown, Real Madrid chained together ten straight wins and went on to win the title.

In a strange summer without reinforcements being brought in, Real Madrid recalled Martin Odegaard from his loan, and they’ve had their fair share of difficulties since.

They almost missed out on the Champions League’s knockout rounds, but they were saved by some final-day heroics in the group stage.
