Real Madrid win UCL group, end hoodoo under Zidane

Real Madrid end UCL hoodoo with Zidane as they qualify to KO stage

December 9, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Los Blancos sorted out their tie against Borussia Mönchengladbach with two first half goals courtesy of Karim Benzema.

The wait is over for Real Madrid fans, and the Spanish side has managed to make it past the group stage on a high note and by winning their group despite all the doubts left by Zidane's men during the course of the first five games.

Two goals by Karim Benzema were enough for the Spanish side to reach the knockout stage of the competition they have dominated since its inception, and the current La Liga champions also managed to end a particular hoodoo since Zidane became their boss in 2016.

The French tactician had not been able to win the group as Real Madrid boss in any of his three previous opportunities. So, with what could be seen as the worst group stage under the French boss, the Spanish champions managed to win a group for the first time under "Zizou".

Moreover, Real Madrid's fears of being demoted to the UEFA Europa League or being eliminated from the competition ended with today's win, and if that was not enough reason to celebrate, Los Blancos kept a perfect record when it comes to reaching the KO stage of the tournament since it was implemented in 1992.
