Historical squad of Real Madrid. The first such case in the history of the club
Real Madrid face Villarreal in the 16th round of the Spanish league. The portal “Opta” reported that this match will go down in history due to the exceptional squad of “Royals”, which does not include any Spaniards.
Real Madrid have been based on players from Spain for many years. Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas spent several years at the Santiago Bernabeu.
In recent seasons, the role of Spanish footballers has declined somewhat. Marco Asensio, Nacho Fernandez and Dani Ceballos are mainly substitutes.
Among the native players, only Dani Carvajal has a certain place in the “Royal” squad. The right-back cannot play against Villarreal today due to injury.
Carlo Ancelotti sent eleven players into the battle, none of whom are Spaniards. The coach bet on three players from France, two from Germany and Brazil, and one from Austria, Croatia, Belgium and Uruguay. The portal “Opta” reported that for the first time in the 21st century, Real Madrid went to a league match without a Spaniard in the squad.
The well-known statistician “Mister Chip” added that not only in the 21st century, but for the first time in history, Real Madrid started a match without a Spaniard in the starting eleven.
