Real Madrid football club is the pride of the city and the whole of Spain. Maybe a Barcelona fan or a fellow Madrilenian who supports Atletico will disagree, but the facts are like that.
We can say that Real is more than that – Real Madrid is synonymous with football worldwide. Even someone from the USA or China, who does not follow football, must have heard of Real, knows what the crest and jerseys look like, and has heard of Galacticos, Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul, Di Stefano, and other things related to this club.
Only a few other football clubs have a such global popularity, for example, Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona, and Juventus. Among many other wins, here are some of the biggest wins in the history of this team.
Real Madrid 11-1 Barcelona, June 13, 1943
The biggest Real Madrid win is against their fiercest rival, FC Barcelona, in what some would say is the most controversial El Classico in history. It was a match in “Copa del Generalisimo” or today more popular as Copa del Rey. It was the 2nd leg of the semi-final, and many believe that at that time, because of the government and the regime in Spain, Real couldn’t lose.
Real Madrid 11-2 Elche, February 7, 1960
On a snowy afternoon in Madrid, Elche, who debuted in the First Division, ran into a ruthless Real. Without using their biggest star, then Di Stefano, the Whites used his replacement, Pepillo, who used his time in the best possible way, scoring five goals. Legendary Puskas, with four goals, also had an excellent match, and at the end, Elche stopped Real at 11 goals.
Real Madrid 10-1 Las Palmas, January 4, 1959
It was another Primera division league match in which Real Madrid was superior—especially the club’s legends Di Stefano and Puskas, who scored a hat trick each. Although Real was dominant in most of the matches, mostly at home, in the end, Barcelona won the league.
Real Madrid 9-0 Odense 1913, October 25, 1961
In the 1950s and 1960s, Real Madrid dominated European football both in the domestic championship and also in European competitions.
In the 2nd leg of the round of 16 in the Champions League, Real Madrid won against Danish team Odense 1913 by 9:0. In the first leg, Real was also the better team and won 3:0. Puskas and Di Stefano were the main players who led the team to this huge win.
Real Madrid 10-2 Rayo Vallecano, December 20, 2015
Although the beginning of the match did not indicate the final result, Real Madrid was more than convincing against the visitors from Vallecano, winning with an incredible and extraordinary 10-2.
The first 12 minutes of the match belonged entirely to the visitors, who, although they conceded a goal in the 3rd minute, managed to return and turn around and silence the “Santiago Bernabeu” with two quick goals. And then the head referee, Ignacio Villanueva, entered the scene and awarded two red cards to the guests, making it easier for the “kings” in the rest of the match.
First, after Tito’s rough start on Kroos, and later because of Baena’s second yellow card, Rayo Vallecano was left with two players. The whole situation was best used by Bale, who scored four times. Benzema finished with three goals, while Ronaldo scored two.
