Zizou is now 2nd for most games managed for Real Madrid
Wow what a feat! Real Madrid are a club in which the manager’s position is anything but stable. Yet, the man who managed the team to the legendary three-peat is now in his second full year of his second stint and has managed the club in 246 matches. This puts him in second place - leveled with Vicente Del Bosque, only behind the late legend Miguel Muñoz, who managed the club for nearly fifteen years. Congratulations, Zizou!

The second leg games for the Champions League Round of 16 are here
It’s been two weeks...huh. Anyway, Madridistas are going to have to wait a week before they can see their favourite team in action again. However, our favourite competition does have games scheduled this week, so there’s football to enjoy while waiting for the Royal Whites’ turn!
Today, possible Real Madrid target E.Haaland’s Borussia Dortmund take on Sevilla, while former white talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and his Juventus team look to avenge their first leg loss against Porto. So here’s the short list of games:
- BVB vs Sevilla (current agg. 3-2)
- Juventus vs Porto (current agg. 1-2)
So, which match will you be watching and who do you think will make it to the next round?
Have a nice day and may the madridismo be with you!
