Real Madrid had a Champions League campaign to forget this season

For the second season running, Real Madrid have gone out of the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage. Last year it was Ajax who upset them and this year it was Manchester City. Whilst everyone might want to blame Raphael Varane for the most recent failure, it isn't all down to him. If you look back on the stats of Zidane's side in Europe this season it doesn't make for pretty reading.

Madrid went to Paris to face PSG, without Sergio Ramos, and were thumped 3-0 by a team which didn't field Mbappe or Neymar.

In fact, Madrid only won three of their eight matches in this season's Champions League. Two of those came against Galatasary and the other against Brugge. They drew at home against PSG and Brugge before losing to Manchester City. 

Ramos was sent off in the first leg defeat so sat out the return fixture last night.

Despite finding their feet in LaLiga, Madrid were unable to produce a good performance in Europe and were knocked out by Pep Guardiola's team.
