Real Madrid’s superiority in the finals

Real Madrid will play next Tuesday the European Supercup Final against Manchester United, and this will be the first official game for the team managed by Zinedine Zidane in the season 2017-2018. Los Blancos are having very good performances in the finals and we will see if they continue achieving titles in an amazing decade for Real Madrid supporters.

The defeat in the Copa del Rey final on the season 2012-2013 against Atlético Madrid was the last time Los Bancos lost a final, with the addition of playing that final at Santiago Bernabéu. Real Madrid suffered a lot after this clash, because they lost against a team in which they have a lot of rivalry and in their own stadium. This was a hard blow that helped to start a triumphant era for Real Madrid because since then, they have not lost any title in decisive matches.

Four years and three months after that final, Real Madrid are just a few days to play the final of the European Supercup being the currently European champion. It will be their third Supercup in four years and in the the previous ones, Los Blancos ended winning the trophy after defeating Sevilla in both finals.

If we talk about the most recent Champions League finals, the story repeats. Zidane’s side has made history, reaching three finals in the last four editions, wining them all and becoming the first team who achieves two consecutive Champions League in a row. Five European finals in which Los Blancos have ended wining the trophy and we must also add another three of other tournaments, 1 Copa del Rey and 2 Club World Cup successes.

This good streak of triumphs in the finals coincides with one of the most fruitful times of the club. The eight titles achieved in these eight finals have served to restore to Real Madrid the status that was lost in recent years because of Barcelona’s superiority.
