Success continued for Ronaldo and Real, where Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale got the crucial goals in a 4-1, after extra time win over Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. This win marked Real Madrid’s “decima”, or tenth European Cup triumph. They are the only club to win ten European Cups.
After the summer, some fans were skeptical about Real’s ability to sustain that success. Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso, who had been so important last season, were sold. However, Real and Ronaldo kept winning. The UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup trophies have followed.
Many players would be overjoyed with such a year, but Ronaldo wants more. He wants to add another La Liga and Champions League triumph to his tally. “This year has been incredible for me. To win so many trophies and experience so much joy with the fans, I cannot ask for anything more. But I would like to keep winning and I hope that another Champions League medal is in my future,” he said.
Real are heavy favorites to win La Liga, while they are also the top pick among betters to win the Champions League in 2014-2015.
