Real Madrid has secured a spot in the EuroLeague Final Four after an epic comeback against Partizan. In Game 5, Los Blancos pulled off a record-breaking feat by winning four consecutive road victories, followed by a crucial home win.
They also became the first team to rally from a 0-2 deficit in a EuroLeague Playoff series. This impressive victory means that Real Madrid will now face their archrival FC Barcelona in the semifinals.
Real Madrid is the most successful team in EuroLeague history, having won 10 continental crowns, but only three of them came in the Final Four era. The early 2010s saw a golden generation of players and coaches join forces, including Rudy Fernandez, Sergio Llull, Sergio Rodriguez, Felipe Reyes, and head coach Pablo Laso.
This team restored Real Madrid to its place among the top clubs on the continent, winning EuroLeague titles in 2015 and 2018 and reaching three more championship games.
Chus Mateo, a two-time champion as Laso’s assistant, will lead the team as they strive to add to the club’s legacy. Real Madrid fans will be eagerly anticipating the showdown with FC Barcelona in the semifinals, which promises to be a thrilling encounter between two of the top teams in European basketball.
