Real Madrid are experiencing one of their unforgettable seasons. They haven’t only won the La Liga 2021/22 in a dominating way but they haven’t also received a red card in this entire competition, which is their best disciplinary record in this particular stat in almost the last 40 La Liga seasons.
The Spanish club Real Madrid is flying in most of the reputed European tournaments this season. Los Blancos secured the La Liga 2021/22 title in late April. While the Whites confirmed their record 35th La Liga title with four matches to spare, it was their earliest league title success since 1990.
Last Friday (20th May), Real finished their journey in the La Liga 2021/22 season with a goalless draw at home against Real Betis. The Whites finished this La Liga season with 86 points in 38 matches (26 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses). Their arch-rivals Barcelona have also confirmed the second position in the points table with 73 points in 37 games as they can only minimize the gap against the title winners to 10 points.
