Real Madrid C.F. – Matches and Tickets 2013/14

Real Madrid are one of the most historic Football Clubs in the world, and after a disappointing trophy less season last year, will be looking to improve in the forthcoming 2013 /14 campaign.

Current

As mentioned above last year was extremely disappointing for Real Madrid as they failed to win a trophy and finished a mammoth fifteen points behind bitter rivals Barcelona, who therefore deposed them as Champions.

Real Madrid departed the Champions League at the semi-final stage for the second successive season last year, with eventual runners up Borussia Dortmund eliminating them. To compound matters, Real Madrid also lost the Copa Del Rey Final to their neighbours Atletico Madrid in extra time, to ensure they ended the year without a trophy.

Last season’s coach Jose Mourinho has now left, with former A.C. Milan and Chelsea FC manager Carlo Ancelotti replacing him at the helm. The expectations are always high at a Club with Real Madrid’s tradition so Ancelotti’s task is a huge one, as his remit will be to regain the Spanish title and target a tenth Champions League success.

He has already added to his talented squad with the signing of young Spanish midfielder Isco from Malaga for a twenty-three million fee and rumours are still circulating that strikers Edinson Cavani or Liverpool’s Luis Suarez could also be heading to Madrid to further boost Ancelotti’s squad.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the star player, in a squad with world class players like Xabi Alonso, Luka Modric, Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria, Sergio Ramos and stalwart Goalkeeper Iker Casillas, so the Club already has an embarrassment of riches.

Rivals

The leading rivals to Real Madrid are Barcelona FC domestically, with the battle for the title mainly a race between these two giants, other clubs who can be problematic for Real Madrid is their cross city neighbours Atletico Madrid who can beat anybody on their day as shown by their victory in the Copa Del Rey Final. Other sides Real Madrid need to wary of are Sevilla and Valencia, who can also beat any opponents on their day.

The main challengers abroad are also Barcelona, along with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Juventus Turin, A.C. Milan and Carlo Ancelotti’s most recent Club Paris Saint-Germain.

Stadium

Real Madrid play their home matches at the iconic Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, which was opened in 1947 and was named after the Club’s then President. It has been renovated over the decades to now have an 85,454 capacity, thus becoming a fortress for the team when playing there.

Real Madrid – 2012/13

Real Madrid C.F. were founded in 1902 and since then have become a dominant force in football, their current manager is the well-known José Mourinho and they play their home games at the Santiago Bernabau Stadium that has a maximum capacity of 85,000. Real Madrid is the richest football club in terms of annual revenue and the club has the ability to attract some amazing players such as Zinedine Zidane, whose influential performances over the years for Real Madrid earned the title of FIFA World Player of the year on three different occasions. Former England captain and world superstar David Beckham also spent some time at Madrid Winning La Liga in the 2006/07 season.

Team

After winning La Liga last season for the first time since 2008, Real Madrid has been raring to go at the start of this season but that seems not to be the case as they have not made a start to a La Liga season this bad for ten years. Things don’t look bright on the pitch at the moment. Christiano Ronaldo also currently said to be unhappy at the club for reasons unknown to those outside of the club’s circles and this could be a major reason regarding Madrid’s current lack of form. Madrid’s new signings have yet to make any real impact to the results, but the experience both Luka Modric and Micheal Essien possess could prove an invaluable asset to Madrid’s title defence.
