Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is looking to write history when his team visits Manchester City next Friday in the second leg of the quarter-finals of the European Champions League.

And in the event that Merengue can turn the table on the Citizens, and compensate for his loss back in the Bernabeu 1-2, he will have returned in the result after he was losing back for the second time in his history only.

In the 1970-1971 season of the European Cup Winners’ Cup, the Royal was a loser in the Bernabeu with a clean goal against the Austrian team Wacker Innsbruck, but he rose up and defeated the Austrian team with two goals without a response in his stronghold.

This is for the team. As for Zidane, in the event of Pep Guardiola’s most distant sons, he will win his 10th consecutive elimination match as coach of the royal.

“Zizou” has not had the taste of getting out of the exclusionary roles since the 2013-2014 season when he was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti.

As for the three most prominent confrontations that Zidane fought in the continental competition, they are:

Wolfsburg 2015-2016: Zidane’s men were losing 2-0 in the first leg of the competition quarter-final at the Bernabeu, but Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo scored a fabulous trilogy in which he led his team to cross into the semi-finals.

Atlético de Madrid 2016-2017: The Royal was a guest of Atletico Madrid in the last game at the Vicente Calderon stadium, the former stronghold of Atlético. In the semi-finals of this copy, “Los Blancos” was a winner over the “Roquebelancos” in the Bernabeu by three clean, but the sons of Zidane found themselves behind two goals without reply after only 16 minutes of the match.

Al-Attali was close to scoring the third goal, before Isco scored the goal of reducing the difference and crossing his team towards the final “Cardiff”, which Real won 4-1 against Juventus.

Juventus 2017-2018: one of the most exciting games in the history of the main continental competition, after Real won 3-0 in the first leg of the competition, the “Juve” received the Bernabeu and the Italian team scored three, and the match was going towards an additional time before Lucas Vasquez got a kick Penalty, including Ronaldo scored the crossing goal for the semi-finals of the competition, which Real Madrid won 13, and the third in a row.
