They did it. Against all the odds and against all the permutations and analysis of football statisticians, #RealMadrid has taken home its 14th #UEFAChampionsLeague title.
It’s been a rollercoaster of a season for #Madridistas. It’s probably been a rollercoaster of a season for Carlo Ancelotti who has been on the receiving end of ire and criticism throughout his now 2nd tenure at Real Madrid.
Many Madridistas doubted that Casemiro, Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric could continue to deliver the same results they have for the past few seasons. Many wanted Vinicius Jr. to go out on loan. Benzema was also seen as a striker on his way out, and many were wondering how our defense would hold up after the exits of Sergio Ramos and Raphaël Varane.
If you would have told Madridistas that THIS Real Madrid team was going to lift their 14th #UCL title and 35th La Liga title at the end of the season, they most likely would have told you that you were being way too optimistic.
Most would have told you that La Liga was possible, maybe the Copa Del Rey, but the UCL was a bit of a longshot for most.
But in the end, many Madridistas, the pundits, and the stats lovers…were wrong.
This is a UCL campaign that will go down as legendary. It defied odds and expectations, but in the end, it also cemented the legacy of Real Madrid as a team that absolutely never gives up. That can never be thought of as being finished because just when you think they are defeated…they will snatch victory away from you and leave you wondering, “what just happened?”
“What just happened?” That was something a lot of us said this season. In this episode, we talk about the UCL final, La Liga, and just the crazy joy that was Real Madrid’s 2021-2022 season.
