When anyone talks about Spanish soccer or even the best teams globally, one of the clubs that come to mind is Real Madrid. These Spanish giants are known for their white kits, their full-to-the-brink trophy cabinet, and the talent they attract.
Real Madrid have had some of the best players on their roster, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldo Nazario, David Beckham, Roberto Carlos, Zinedine Zidane, Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Claude Makelele, and Pepe having worn the famous white shirts.
Whenever a player is linked to the Los Blancos, as they are commonly known, it is never a surprise to hear them say that it is a dream come true.
This season, the team from the Spanish capital brought back manager Carlo Ancelotti who led them to La Decima back in 2014, and helped the team win more trophies. David Alaba and Eduardo Camavinga, also joined the fray.
Real Madrid: Tactics, Principles
Tactics are all about trade-offs, and Carlo Ancelotti is arguably one of the best game managers in the world.
The Lost Blancos are known for the 4-3-3 formation, with Karim Benzema as their central striker. Midfield maestros Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric run the middle of the park. The Italian manager believes in fast transitions from defense to attack. Fast transitioning has helped their wingers like Vinicius Junior, and Marco Asensio find more space meaning more chances in front of goal.
Real’s individual skill, passing speed, team harmony, and technical ability have all contributed to their success. Defensive deficiencies are less of a concern, and sometimes they are completely concealed by the world-class players at the back.
Real Madrid: La Liga PREDICTIONS & What to Expect to
The Los Blancos have won the La Liga title a record 34 times, and in the 2020/21 season, they finished as runners-up. They are fearless giant-slayers, and everyone expects them to lift the championship even before a new season kicks off.
Real Madrid very rarely drop points from winning positions. Their consistency and ruthlessness in front of goal explains why Betway has given them odds of 1.10 to win the 2021/22 Spanish Championship.
Real Madrid: UEFA Champions PREDICTIONS & What to Expect to
When everything fails domestically, Real Madrid often turns their attention to the Champions League, which is a competition they are gods in. Interestingly, under Zinedine Zidane, the Los Blancos were crowned champions of Europe thrice in a row in the 15/16, 16/17 and 17/18 seasons, something no other team has achieved in recent times.
They have always been favorites to win Europe’s most coveted cup, but under the current soccer climate, there’s always someone out there better than you.
The world has seen the emergence of some good teams, for example, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern Munich and Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris Saint-Germain, who, according to Betway, are better placed to lift the trophy this season than Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid, who are on 17.10 odds.
Real Madrid: Copa del Rey PREDICTIONS & What to Expect to
This is a trophy the Los Blancos would want to win again, with their last victory coming back in the 2013/14 season.
Real Madrid have enough powerhouses in their ranks, and the 2021/22 fixtures calendar favors them, as they do not have Copa del Rey matches in the same week as Champions League fixtures, which means no long travels and exhaustion.
Betway have allocated them odds of 2.15 to win it this season, and that in itself, is a huge statement on their abilities and current form.
