After the 2-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabéu against Manchester City, the result was repeated at the Etihad Stadium, with the Whites being eliminated.
Manchester City delivered one of the biggest blows of the season by eliminating Real Madrid in the round of 16 of the UEFA champions league. However, the award was double for the English team.
And this is the first time, since the 2008-09 season, in which the Merengues lost both games in a series of the highest European competition, with the two 2-1 defeats against the Citizens.
On that occasion, more than a decade later, the Whites lost to Liverpool 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabéu and then 4-0 at Anfield, also in the round of 16.
