NEWS | 24/06/2019It was the second successive year in which the team contested a record number of 83 games.
Pablo Laso's men achieved nearly an 80% win rate this season (79.5%). In the league, the team contested 43 games, winning 36 of these match-ups to be crowned champions for the 35th time in the club's history. The madridistas played 35 EuroLeague matches, coming out on top in 26 of them to match their all-time record in this competition, which was set two seasons ago. Meanwhile, in the Copa del Rey, the team reached the final, only for a controversial refereeing decision, as Randolph's block on Tomic in the final second of overtime was awarded as a basket, prevented the team from lifting another piece of silverware. In the Super Cup, played in Santiago de Compostela, the Whites claimed the trophy after downing the hosts in the semi-finals and prevailing over Baskonia in the showpiece.
This year marked the fourth time that Real Madrid has hit the 80-game mark in a season and the second in which they've contested 83 matches. From next year, this figure could be even greater as the EuroLeague is to be expanded to feature a further two teams, bringing the total of participating sides to 18. Since Pablo Laso took up the reins, the team has been involved in an average of 78 games. Campazzo, Causeur and Tavares, with 71 appearances apiece, featured in the most games this term across the madridista roster.
