Securing a 2-1 win over Barcelona had earned them a victory in La Copa Del Rey. Real’s 4-1 triumph over Atletico Madrid made history by making them ten time European Cup winners and bringing about the new generation of Galacticos.
The agonising 12 year long wait for La Decima has finally come to end as Carlo Ancelotti’s first season as Real coach was successful on a large scale.
The club’s obsession with being kings of Europe has been attained, with La Copa Del Rey success under their belt as an extra-added bonus.
Los Rojiblanco’s coach, Diego Simeone saw his team come miraculously close to lifting the European Cup in Lisbon before Sergio Ramos netted the equaliser in normal time which saw Los Colchoneros dreams come to an end.
Three more goals hit the back of Thibaut Courtois’ net in extra time, securing the win for Los Blancos, with history being made as their triumph hit double figures in the first-ever European final between two teams from the same city.
La Liga Champions Atletico had the best defensive record in the competition while Real had scored more goals in this year’s tournament than any team before them, with Ronaldo being the team’s top-scorer.
There were heroes all over the pitch. Cristiano Ronaldo, is now revered for delivering La Decima, summer break the bank signing Gareth Bale scored the goal that led to victory and Sergio Ramos, the saviour amongst the club’s fans, made it six goals from seven games – not to mention winger Angel Di Maria who capped off a fantastic season for the club.
Despite missing three great chances in the final, it is safe to say that Bale’s price tag has been well paid off given in his debut season with 22 goals and 19 assists in his 44 games, an extraordinary 85th minute winning goal against Barcelona in the Clasico final as well as an equally great goal against Atleti.
The underrated winger, Angel Di Maria, also continues to sweetly surprise the team and its fans with netting in goal in both cup finals as well. Not to mention the remarkable Ronaldo who, despite injuries, still achieved top-scorer and won a second Pichichi title and a second Golden boot.
An overall great way to end an even greater season, with multiple victories that make the club and their fans proud. Perez spent good money to produce a second team of Galacticos with a fantastic team line-up that make Real Madrid deserved winners this season.
