Real Madrid is the most successful team in the history of the Champions League and just a year ago, they won their 3rd consecutive Champions League title. Besides, in every season of the Champions League, Real Madrid used to be considered as one of the most potential teams. But, this is the worst start ever in the Champions League of Real Madrid! Yes, it is a big surprising fact, is not it? A most successful club like Real Madrid made the worst star! Let’s find out why the most pathetic thing has happened to them.
They have started the Champions League journey in the new season by playing against the French club Paris Saint Germain. They visited Parc des Princes for the game and at the home venue, the Ligue 1 champion defeated them by a 3 – 0 goal. Against the most powerful opponent at the group level, Real was defeated but their fans hoped that the team of Zidane will turn around and brought the victory in the next match. Their 2nd round of the group stage took place against the small team which was Belgium Club Brugge.

But on the opposite way, at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real was about to face the 2bd defeat but finally, the match ended with a 2 – 2 goals draw. So, by playing first to matches in the Champions League, Real Madrid just achieved 1 point so far. In the history of Champions League, the 13th times champion Real Madrid did not make the worst start than this time ever.

In the season of 2002/03, Real did such thing but it was in the 2nd phase of the competition. Back then, the format of the Champions League was not like the current time. After the first level, a total of sixteen teams used to qualify for the 2nd phase which used to be divided into four groups once again. In the group of Real Madrid, there were AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund and a Russia club were placed. In that time, Real was defeated against AC Milan by a 1 – 0 goal and in the 2nd match, they made a draw against the team of Russia by a 2 – 2 goal. So, after two matches, they got just 1 point.
