Real Madrid's last five last 16 matches in the Champions League

Published on the 08 March 2010 à 08:00 by BV

Since a quarter-final lost to Monaco (4-2, 1-3), Real Madrid have systematically seen their Champions League campaign come to a halt in the last 16 of the competition.

A disappointing performance for a club of their standing, which can be explained, in part, by their incapability of performing in the second leg of this first knock out round of the competition, losing on four occasions and conceding one draw. In their defence, it has to be stated that Madrid have played four of their last five round of 16 matches away from home.

Twice (against Juventus in 2005 and Bayern Munich in 2007), they were unable to conserve their advantage of a goal acquired during the first leg. On three occasions (against Arsenal in 2006, Roma in 2008 and Liverpool in 2009), they were incapable of turning round a first leg defeat. Last season, they suffered a heavy defeat at Anfield against Liverpool (4 – 0).
