Zinedine Zidane produced yet another moment of coaching histor, winning the Champions League for the third successive season, and helpingĀ Real Madridto complete a historic double.

Gareth Bale’s second half double spurred Los Blancos to a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in Kiev, a result which cements the team’s status as a dynasty.

Los Blancos’ triumph in Ukraine marked their thirteenth European Cup victory, further pushing the Spanish giants ahead of the rest in this regard.

Florentino Perez’s second spell at the helm of the club has seen success arrive in almost all quarters, not only has the football team been successful but the organisation’s basketball team has also enjoyed glory on the continental stage.

Both teams have won the European title, with Zidane and Pablo Laso doing their jobs to a high standard.

A campaign which began with a victory over Borussia Dortmund in September, Real Madrid finished their run to another European title with one of their most complete performances of the season.

LaLiga has been a disappointment that will likely have ramifications with regards for the summer transfer window, however, Zidane had the perfect tactical game-plan to nullify Jurgen Klopp’s Gegenpress.

Laso’s side had to wait until October to begin their own continental run in the Euroleague, defeating Anadolu Efes on the opening day of the tournament before overcoming Panathinaikos, CSKA Moscow and Fenerbahce.

Luka Doncic was the youngest Most Valuable Player in the history of the Euroleague and he starred in the final in which Los Blancos squeezed to an 85-80 win.
