Why Real Madrid are heavy favorites to win the Champions League again

Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are through to the semifinals of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid knocked out Premier League heavyweights Liverpool win a win at home and draw away to record a 3-1 aggregate result.

The result means that Real Madrid are back in their fourth Champions League semifinal in five years.

Here are three reasons why Real Madrid are heavy favorites to win the Champions League again

1 Pedigree

The previous three times Real Madrid were in the semifinals, they emerged champions back in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Real Madrid has won the Champions League 13 times, and are the most successful side in the competition.

The Spanish side last won the competition in 2018 and still has most of the core players in Luka Modric, Casimero, Toni Kroos, Raphael Varane, and Sergio Ramos.

It will be foolish to underestimate this Real Madrid side

2 Zinedine Zidane

Zinedine Zidane is synonymous with the Champions League with triumphs as a player with Juventus and Real Madrid as a player.

As a coach, has won the competition three times which was in a row between 2016-2018.

Several critics believe that Zidane has been successful because of the great Cristiano Ronaldo but this is far from the truth as his managerial experience has seen him knock off more-lauded managers such as Jurgen Klopp and will be pivotal to them being the last team standing.
