What is Real Madrid’s style of play? Real Madrid is the most successful club in the history of football, but do they play tiki taka football like Barcelona or their own style. Obviously, a big part of Real Madrid’s style of play was centered on getting the ball to Cristiano Ronaldo, and rightly so.
But with Ronaldo gone, Real Madrid have to come up with a more team oriented style of playing football – where they build out of the back and keep possession more rather than try to break quickly by getting the ball to Ronaldo out wide. It’s a near era for Real Madrid, with Zidane back in charge they may have to build their youth system up or go out and spend money to replace Ronaldo. I’m guessing Zidane will do both.
The foundation of Real Madrid’s style of play for now will be based around stars like Modric, Kroos, Isco, Garth Bale, and Benzema. All of these players will have to step up to replace Ronaldo.

Here’s a great Zidane quote: “I was lucky to come from a difficult area. It teaches you not just about football but also life. There were lots of kids from different races and poor families. People had to struggle to get through the day.”
Zidane on the opposition:
“I’m not worried about conceding chances against the opposition. What worries us is playing good football, but the opponents are there to put you in difficulty.”
