Real Madrid returns to the scene in the Champions League next Tuesday with a visit to Shakhtar that gains importance after the great surprise of the Sheriff at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, which added to the league defeat at Espanyol, leaves Carlo Ancelotti before a situation that he only suffered once in his first year and three times in his second.

Ancelotti never lost three consecutive games at the helm of Real Madrid in the two seasons that shaped his first spell on the white bench.

He suffered it four times and always reacted with victories to close those potholes in results. Her team needs her on Tuesday in the city of Donetsk against a Shakhtar who in the last edition beat the Madrid team in both group stage matches, at that time led by Zinedine Zidane.

In his first year at the helm of Real Madrid, in which he won the 10th European Cup, the losing streak of two consecutive defeats did not come until March. Both in the League, conditioning the path of their team and hindering their chances of success in the domestic competition as they face important rivals.

It was on March 23, 2014 and three days later, accusing the blow, he was defeated again in the visit to Sánchez Pizjuán against Sevilla (2-1). A brace by Colombian Carlos Bacca turned Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal.

The response was overwhelming, with the best winning streak and record, up to 22 in a row with a final touch, the conquest of the Club World Cup. The Christmas holidays did not sit well with their squad and 2015 began with two important setbacks, against Valencia in the League and Atlético de Madrid in the Copa del Rey, a 2-0 that they would not be able to lift in the return leg. In between he left his league reaction with a victory against Espanyol.
