Real Madrid’s big win in the last Clásico gave the team the honorary title of champion of the Regular Season with three games left to go before the playoff. Along with the 1984-85 season this is quickest that Real has locked down the top spot since the ACB was created 29 years ago.
With 27 wins in 31 Liga games this current Real Madrid is the team that has needed the least time to secure the top spot in the Regular Season since the record set by the 84-85 team that included players Corbalan, Romay, Fernando Martin, Jackson and Robinson and was coached by Lolo Sainz. Almost three decades have passed since Real Madrid has managed to reach the 84-85 team record thanks to the spectacular run that has made Real into the team to beat for the La Liga title.
With three games left until the end of the Regular Season, two at home against Asefa Estudiantes and Lagun Aro and one away against Fiatc Joventut, Real Madrid is positioned to reach 30 Regular Season wins for the first time in the club’s history; only Joventut has hit the 30 win mark (90-91) since the ACB changed its format to 17 teams and 34 matches. The superiority of the team led by coach Pablo Laso has been made clear over the course of the season: Real was the first team to classify for the playoffs with ten games left until the end of the Regular Season, locking down the top spot ahead of Barcelona Regal to secure the home-court advantage in a hypothetical final.
