Real Madrid Style of Play

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.

Real Madrid teamwork, combinations and counter during the La Liga season. Real Madrid have been playing a beautiful football recently and the football team look fresh and energized.

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. Must be pretty amazing to play for one of the greatest players to ever play:

“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.”

Standard of Play

One thing that Real Madrid might have more than other La Liga teams is a toughness and bite. They know how to get stuck in when they need to and almost intimidate other teams with their defense.

Also, the fans of Real Madrid, so used to winning titles, are very demanding, you’ll hear them whistling if their team doesn’t have enough of the ball or are losing to a lesser team.

What’s maybe a bit new about the current Real Madrid team is they never give up. They stick to their style of play but always push for that goal.
